At Houston Mennonite, we believe that "you can do it... we can help," like a certain big-box store. In other words, we want to support our members where their passions are and where they're already active, rather than trying to get sign-ups for a whole new bunch of programs of our own.
Houston Mennonites are active with these groups (among others):
MAM is local to HMC and works to meet the basic needs of Houston residents with personalized support. Houston Mennonite is one of MAM's Member Congregations.
MDS is a volunteer network of Anabaptist churches that responds in Christian love to those affected by disasters in Canada and the United States. While the main focus is on clean up, repair and rebuilding homes, this service touches lives and nurtures hope, faith and wholeness.
Houston Mennonite works to live in harmony with the world and its people. In addition to working towards zero waste, we support fair wages for all workers and buy Fair Trade where we can. A variety of Fair Trade products are available Sunday mornings at our building, including our coffee and tea service.
