Church Family Happenings

 July 29, 2022


Playground Days are back! Families with children are invited to an informal playground meet-up weekly throughout the summer on Thursdays at 6:30pm at the Lendrum Community Park. The intention is for families with small children to meet up, but anyone is welcome to join! If you have questions, please contact Aimee R.

Emergency Supplies Needed. MCC is planning an immediate shipment of emergency supplies to Ukraine, but our inventory of material resources is getting low. We need comforters, soap and towels as well as dignity, hygiene, infant care, relief, school and sewing kits. Your donations will provide relief and a tangible sign of hope to people in Ukraine and other difficult situations around the world.
Please contact Linda Dickinson, Material Resources Coordinator at

Earthquake in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is recovering from a 5.9-magnitude earthquake that happened in June, adding difficulty to an already dire situation. MCC welcomes gifts designated to Afghanistan as we continue to work with partners in the country. We currently have 3 partners and 4 projects offering programming in peacebuilding, mental health and education. A new food relief project is planned for August, as well. We can’t name any partners or locations for security reasons.

Hunger Crisis. Around 50 million people are at crisis levels of hunger, teetering on the edge of famine. That’s up from 27 million in 2019 before the pandemic began. This hunger crisis has been triggered by several factors. Conflict, disaster and rising food prices are the main things that disrupt people’s ability to access food. Mennonite Central Committee is joining with the Humanitarian Coalition to raise funds and respond with emergency supplies.

Join us for fundraising, fellowship, and food! Come to Bergthal Mennonite Church on September 24 and you’ll find live and silent auctions inside the church, vereniki outside under the tent and friends new and old everywhere! All proceeds support local and global MCC programs for relief, development and peace. The festival runs from 10 o’clock to 3 o’clock. We look forward to seeing you!
