Our story

West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale (WCMRS) is a group of Mennonite and Anabaptist churches on the West Coast working together to raise money and support for the relief, development and peace work of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).


Come bring the whole family: there is plenty of food, great desserts, and more. You can bid on a quilt in a live auction or, if you're shy, bid in the silent auction. There's an early morning 5k run/walk or you can join the kids in a scavenger hunt. There's a Country Store, an Art Show, and all the Used Books you can read.  What's more: a Tauga tent, music on the Green and additional activities. Then there's always time for a reunion: family, MCC Alumni, or just friends. The WCMRS only happens once a year so don't miss it.


Admission is free.


Your donations enable MCC to accomplish its mission: sharing God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ.


WCMRS is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charitable organization and in 2018 we raised $171,000 for the work of MCC.

August 5, 2018 - The West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale Annual Meeting is coming up soon! It will take place on Sunday, September 9th at 4PM in the Reedley MB Church Social Hall. A light dinner will be served at no charge. All are encouraged to attend as there will be elections of officers and the opportunity to discuss various aspects of the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale.


July 30, 2018 - The Board for the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale announces a permanent change in the dates of the sale starting in 2019. The sale will be the second full weekend of April unless Easter falls on that date, if it does the sale would then be on the third weekend of April. So mark your calendars for the sale on April 12 and 13, 2019! See you then.

  • Why change the date? There have been several issues we have been having to cope with over the last few years. Two large events happening every year going on in Fresno and Clovis. The third event happens every 4 years when the National Youth Conference of the MB Church happens. It takes away our youth in the area as well as parents and board members who are important to the Sale. We are hoping with these changes to increase the crowd size and make the Sale more accessible to everyone.

July 30-Aug 3, 2018 - Take part in the West Coast MCC Bike Ride in Kellogg, Idaho.

June 18, 2018 - WCMRS launches new website. Take a look and enjoy our new site design.
