For years, CMC has supported young adults pursuing service experiences both domestic and international. In fall 2016, Outreach Commission (OC) voted to increase financial support of individuals serving with Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS) from $1,200 to $2,000 (per individual). During our May meeting we identified the need for a policy regarding individuals who chose to serve an additional year with MVS. This policy will be created during our June meeting. If you have suggestions or concerns, please speak with Hadley Jenner or another OC member.
Aliese Gingerich reported on several ways that CMC congregants can get involved with the efforts of Faith In Action (FIA) over the next several months. FIA members will be reading Waking Up White, by Debby Irving before attending a diversity training on October 21st. There will be book discussions each month this summer. For more information, contact Aliese Gingerich or Kent Davis Sensenig.
