Ministry of Outreach
WPMF has been involved in various ways in reaching out to the West Philadelphia community through friendships and projects.
These include intentional outreach to international students, supporting Habitat for Humanity, sponsoring a Meals on Wheels program, providing leadership and financial resources to Philadelphia Mennonite High School, being involved in Philadelphia Interfaith Action on city-wide lobbying efforts and projects, working on affordable housing with the Beaumount Initative, participating in Heeding God’s Call (gun violence prevention), and other initiatives.
“True Christians use neither worldly sword nor engage in war, since among them taking human life has ceased entirely, for we are no longer under the Old Covenant…. The Gospel and those who accept it are not to be protected with the sword, neither should they thus protect themselves.” -Swiss leader, Conrad Grebel
