Friends of Portland Mennonite Church,
PMC is a vibrant, engaged, and creative congregation. I love seeing the children collect coins on Sunday mornings for Mennonite Central Committee's refugee relief projects; I'm thrilled with the partnerships our congregation has formed throughout the city to help people who are experiencing homelessness; I am excited that Stephen Ministry is about to launch at PMC and will deepen our capacity to care for one another; and every year out at the retreat, when we make our way out to the Pacific Ocean to baptize new members, I think 'This is the way church is supposed to be.'
And it all happens because you generously fund the worship and work of PMC. In order to support the ministries of the church through 2017, I want to encourage all of you to make a financial pledge. The Table will use these pledges to finalize a budget for next year. Our capacity to 'seek the peace of the city' will grow as each of us makes a contribution.
Peace to you,
