As the water roared toward their home like an avalanche, Anna and Jerry Rucker literally ran for their lives. After days with out electricity, food, or running water, Jesus showed up in the form of Mennonite and Amish relief workers. Watch their short story and see why they now proclaim, "God is very good, all the time! and say "Thank you!" to Souderton Mennonite Church in particular. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK
The Material Resource Center of Harleysville's mission is to support the global ministry of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) by communicating both the need and the opportunities to give material resources to those suffering from poverty, oppression, natural disasters and war. Through this outreach, we share God’s love, hope, and joy in the name of Jesus Christ. Our church members are active participants in helping the mission of MRC by providing completed 'kits and by sewing comforters that will be donated to impoverished areas throughout the world.

The Worm Project is a global initiative that strives to relieve the suffering of millions of children. The program distributes pills around the world, which purge worms from the intestinal tract. Each pill costs a few cents and is good for six months! Their goal is to give attention to the most humble — the sick and worm-infested children who seem to have few opportunities to rank on anyone’s priority list. Souderton Mennonite Church raises funds for this project throughout the year and collects donations via small WORM Project piggy banks. Stop by the church office and we'll give you a piggy bank!
MAMA Project began in 1987 working in Honduras. Now they also have a scholarship program in Haiti and provide materials to Child Survival programs across the world. They are vocal advocates for severely malnourished children, a group that is often abandoned. God has not abandoned them, and we cannot either. SMC raises funds for this worthwhile project annually.
