LAMB'S BASKET (Lakeside Area Ministries Board) provides food and household supplies from their pantry to needy families in Henrico County. FMC will offer our gifts on the third Sunday of each month in our little red wagon. For October, the need is fresh eggs. Other donations are welcome anytime.
MCC SCHOOL KITS Thanks to your generosity, FMC donated 100 school kits to MCC!! Children from around the world will have the school supplies needed to attend school this year!
NEWCOMER LUNCH, hosted by the pastor and elders, will be after church on November 6th. All new attendees are welcome to join us for soup, bread, salad and dessert, and to meet other new attendees and get acquainted with the elders of the church. It’s a fun and informal time, and a chance to get your questions about FMC answered! If you plan to attend, notify the pastor by October 30th.
CROP WALK Folks from First Mennonite will join hundreds of other faithful Richmond area people in the CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, November 13. Please be generous with your donations. Contact Sandy Elliott at 426-2190 for information on walking or donating.
CALLING ALL ARTISTS: November 13th will be Art & Faith Sunday, celebrating our faith through art. The Worship Commission would like to display or feature as many examples of art from our congregational members as possible. We would like visual arts, musical arts (people playing their instruments), creative writing, creative videos, photography, flower arrangement, and any other arts you would like to share. Consider the question: “What is the meaning of this art to me, and how does it connect with my faith?” These arts will be featured between Sunday school and worship, as part of the worship service, and after the worship service during a coffee and snack time. Visual arts may remain on display through the following Sunday. Please contact Joel Reinford if you would like to present your art!
