Community Life

Community life happens in many ways at FMC, as we worship and join with one another in many activities. We want to nurture a sense of welcome and community among congregational participants, and create opportunities for relationship and care beyond existing friendship and family circles.

Potluck Meal

Meals

We love to eat together. On many Sundays following worship, we gather for tasty potluck or prepared fundraiser meals. We welcome the Christmas season in with a turkey dinner for everyone.  Pastors and Elders host meals to get better acquainted with newer participants.  Check out our calendar for dates!

Special Events

Port Burwell

A variety of activities for fun and service provide an opportunity to meet new people within the church and to bring friends along. For example, preparing blankets (comforter-knotting) together for areas in the world struck by disaster or war brings all ages together around the needs of others.

We kick off the summer with our June picnic at Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp. Our church likes to go to the beach and camping together.  Mid-summer finds us camping or spending the day together at the lovely big beach at Port Burwell Provincial Park.

Algonquin canoeing

Group camping at Algonquin Park the week leading to the Labour Day weekend has been a tradition for decades as we enjoy beautiful scenery, hikes, food, campfires, and swimming. Check out our calendar for dates!

Ongoing activities

People meet in pairs to exchange English and Spanish language learning.
