Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. MCC envisions worldwide communities in right relationship with God, one another, and creation.
Our work is built on the foundational support of the church. Over the decades and still today, MCC gathers people across differences to work together to share God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ. Some have been MCC volunteers internationally, some have been active in MCC relief sales, some have volunteered at MCC Material Resources Centers and MCC Thrift shops, some have made financial gifts to MCC’s work.
As we read in 1 Corinthians 12:4, “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.” That variety of gifts in the church has been blessing communities around the world in the name of Christ through MCC’s ministries for more than 100 years. And those gifts have life breathed into them by God’s Spirit—the one Spirit which binds all of God’s children together.
Whether in Miami or India, the desire of God’s heart is that all may experience the abundant life which Jesus claimed as his reason for coming—so that all of God’s children may live lives of dignity in thriving communities.
Thank you for following God’s call on your life to bless a hurting world in partnership with MCC. Thank you for being part of MCC’s century-old story and part of the MCC family.
