Local Mission Projects

The annual Verenike Supper attracts hundreds of people each February, as they come to enjoy verenike, German sausage, fried potatoes, green beans, cherry moos, zwiebach and homemade pie. The money raised through the supper funds various mission projects. In the past, it has funded youth service trips, and most recently, a service trip to Montana to work at a youth camp and renovating a thrift shop. 
First Mennonite hosts the Mission Supper each year in November. The Mission Supper serves German Sausage, fried potatoes, green beans, zwiebach, and homemade pie. Donations are dispersed between chosen local and global mission projects. A decision about the Mission Supper 2021 will be made soon. 
Each year, the Mission ministry organizes a Leaf Raking Day for members of our congregation, as well as other community members.
