Cooking With The First Menno

Hello Friends,

As an Anabaptist church community we have come together from many faith backgrounds. A significant influence on our culture is the Russian Mennonite experience – including lots of delicious food. Cooking and sharing portzeljke was a common way to usher in the new year for many families. It is hard to gather safely in person these days so Tom and Mary Anne Neufeld worked to create the next best thing – a cooking video for all to share. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas friends! We celebrated with a special collection of stories, readings, and performances by youth in our church this year. If you were not able to tune into the live stream you are welcome to contact us to ask for another chance to view the service.

We hope you can join in as we anticipate the arrival of Jesus together!
