Finland Mennonite Church is the body of 200+ believers that meet for worship together on Ziegler Road in Pennsburg, PA. The church was established in 1931 as a church plant out of the Franconia Conference Home Missions Program in a building just down the road from our current location. The church sits at the intersection of several regions and our congregation includes people from many different towns and students from more than four school districts.
It was a cold morning this week when four members of our church, Finland Mennonite, gathered to set up a table making a free “drive-thru” coffee stand. As usual, we looked forward to seeing our “regulars” and we prayed for new cars to stop by. Our normal conversations about sugar or creamer were replaced this particular Wednesday by something much deeper as a woman from the community pulled in, not for coffee or donuts, but asking if we could pray with her. She had been to our drive-thru in months past but today she was in search of something more. We prayed for her and cried with her and marveled at how Jesus is able to work through us to bring comfort to others, even through donuts and coffee.
