  "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations; baptizing them in the name
of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them
to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you
always, to the very end of the age."
                Matthew 28:19
It is in the teachings of Jesus that we find the motivation for giving and sharing. 
We reflect Christ's love by caring for our neighbors near and far who suffer from poverty,
disaster, hunger, and injustice.  Longenecker Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship is a partner
of Mennonite Mission Network and Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).  

 We have various ways of raising funds to help our missionaries
serving in far away Mongolia.
To keep in touch we receive news letters and have opportunity to attend a prayer
breakfast once a month at New Grounds Cafe in Walnut Creek, Ohio with other
partnering congregations for fellowship and prayer for our missionaries.
At Christmas we have the opportunity to buy beautiful Poinsettias to help
raise money for Mongolia.
We support two missionary families in Nicaragua, as well as partner with the CFCI
Nicaragua team through prayer, communicating, and sending and receiving delegates.
From January through July we participate in My Coins Count.  We collect "pocket
change" and fill water jug.   Funds are combined with other participating churches
in August and this money is used to provide clean drinking water for poor countries.
Any of our adults can volunteer once a month at the Save and Serve Thrift Store in
Millersburg, OH.  We need two people on the designated day to check out and bag
merchandise. All goods are donated by the community and sorted by volunteers. 
Some of our people also volunteer at MCC Connections Thrift Shop in Kidron, OH. 
When we all work together, we are helping people in many countries around the
world through MCC.
We collect items and assemble shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child each year.
