Celebration for World Relief is a group of Mennonite and Anabaptist churches on the West Coast who work together to raise funds for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) a world relief organization begun by the Mennonite Churches in response to hunger and famine in Russia a century ago. Now, MCC is a worldwide ministry, sharing God’s love and compassion for all in the Name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. Watch the short video below to find out who MCC is and what they do to support human needs around the world.


Like a County Fair

Communities throughout the United States and Canada raise money through relief sales. Here in Fresno, we spend two days a year enjoying the Sale and hundreds of hours preparing for it! The money we raise at our Sale goes directly to MCC.

Relief Sales give each community a chance to raise money and to do so in their own style. It's also gives us a way to introduce younger generations and the larger community to our own heritage and history.

Like a country fair, our sale includes: a quilt and furniture auction, country store, used books, garden shop, to name a few. We have ethnic Mennonite, Mexican food, and more. If you haven't tried our Zweibach or Fritters (Portselkje), here's your chance! With the funds raised, MCC determines where the money is needed most.
