In Our World
MCC is the relief and development arm of the Mennonite church and other Anabaptist related organizations. “MCC seeks to demonstrate God’s love by working among people suffering from poverty, conflict, oppression and natural disaster. MCC serves as a channel for interchange by building mutually transformative relationships. MCC strives for peace, justice and the dignity of all people by sharing our experiences, resources and faith in Jesus Christ.” (From the MCC website) We support the work of MCC financially and from time to time highlight one of their projects, such as collecting health or school kits for nations with particular need.
Ten Thousand Villages
Ten Thousand Villages is a non-profit fair trade retailer utilizing volunteers to sell handcrafted items from around the world. We support two stores with one located in O’Bryonville, the newest one at Harper’s Point. Working with Ten Thousand Villages has been a significant part of the outreach of Cincinnati Mennonite Fellowship. Its mission is to provide a fair income to Third World People by marketing their hand crafted items and telling their stories in the US and Canada. We think Ten Thousand Villages is so special that we gave it its own page on our website.
