  "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 Mennonite 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
recieve news letters and have opportunity to attend a prayer breakfast once a
month at Farmstead in Berlin, 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.
 
From January through July we participate in Penny Power.  We collect "pocket change" and fill a 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.
