This is how it all started!
The idea to have a MCC relief sale at Menno Church came about when a Christian Enrichment Committee made up of Warren “Butch” Gering, Kay Jantz and Dorene Claassen were planning activities. Under their direction, the first Menno Mennonite Church MCC Relief Sale was held on September 23, 1978 from 2-5 p.m. There was an auction and eight booths including pony rides. Total receipts were $7,300. Chairman Butch reported “…the crowd was larger than most of us expected and the proceeds from the sale were greater than any of us dared dream possible.”

The Mennonite Country Auction & Relief Sale is one of over 47 relief sales held in the United States and Canada. Proceeds from these relief sales support the international relief, developemnt and service ministries of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). Service is given “In the name of Christ” in the midst of a hurting world as a witness to a compassionate God. MCC was born in 1920 in response to hunger and related human need brought on by war and revolution in Russia and the Ukraine. Today MCC has about 1000 workers serving in some 53 countries, including the U.S., and sends assistance to 70 countries. MCC’s programs include providing material aid, such as wheat, beans, clothing and medical supplies to meet emergency needs, and agricutural development and water conservation projects to improve life in communities around the globe. Our sale has contributed over $1.5 million to MCC over the past 40 years.

We’ve turned Penny Power into My Coins Count! Join the fun, intergenerational movement to collect coins to support the MCC programs of relief, development and peace around the world. Look for the My Coins Count container on the sale grounds and donate your spare change. Monies raised will be used to support MCC in fighting world hunger.
More than 790 million people do not have enough to eat. It’s not that there isn’t enough food in the world, but disaster, poverty or unfair policies mean people can’t access it. MCC works with their local partners around the world to make sure there is food for today, food for tomorrow and food for all.
The Menno Church kids have raised $9,937.90 over the last five years for projects for Penny Power / Coins Count.
