Friends,

Peace and blessings! Join us in 2020 for worship and service as we seek the peace of the City! 

The Women's March on NYC is  Saturday, 1/18 at 11 AM (starting at Columbus Circle). Please let me know if you plan to attend. Also, we're looking for a coordinator (or two) who might help with planning MMF's presence at the march. Simply, reply to this message if you'd like to attend and/or help coordinate!

This Sunday, join us for the Kennel Shenk baby shower at 3 PM at Menno House. There will also be a trustee meeting (open to all; topic: budget planning) at 2 PM at Menno House. And at the 5 PM worship service, join us in honoring previous elders, Susan Skeels and Tim Kennel Shenk, for their faithful service to our flock.

We'll take the 10am NYC Ferry from Wall St/Pier 11 to Rockaway, which takes 55 mins, then transfer for a 20-min bus ride to the Visitors Center.

If you miss the ferry (it only goes every 90mins on the wkend) or would rather take the A train, (which takes apx 80 mins) we’ll meet you at the Center at 11:30.   After seeing Jayne’s exhibit we hope to take a short walk around the refuge, then find somewhere to eat, before heading back.  Contact Katrina with questions at

Learn more about the exhibit here!
And check out this excellent article on Jayne's work!

 Centering prayer, breath work, silence, Lectio Divina, Taize, meditation on the Word, and other contemplative elements are incorporated into this monthly service.

We practice an open Communion table. All are invited and welcome to participate.

Our practice is simple… search our hearts, seek healing, break bread and pass the cup.
