When the Mennonite Church Manitoba congregation, Riverton Fellowship Circle, decided to close
this summer, they decided to "pay it forward" in a number of unique
ways. 1. They gave their building to the Riverton Friendship Centre, the
drop-in organization they were born out of. 2. They gave $30,000 back
to JoinHands (formerly Tenth Man), a program of Mennonite Men that provides grants to help new congregations acquire their first church building. Riverton Fellowship Circle had received a grant from Tenth Man to build
their building, and they wanted to enable another congregation to build. 3. They
established bursaries for indigenous young people to participate at
Camps with Meaning and study at Canadian Mennonite University.
