Mennonite Country Auction, Oct. 6, 2018
The Mennonite Country Auction & Relief Sale is coming up October 6 in Ritzville, WA. It is one of nearly 50 sales held in the U.S. and Canada. Sale proceeds support the international relief, development and service ministries of 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 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 agricultural development and water conservation projects to improve life in communities around the globe.
Sale planners are happy to announce that Bethel Mountain Band (Salem, OR) will perform at the sale on Saturday at 10:30 and again during the Sunday morning worship at Menno Mennonite Church in Ritzville, Washington.
