History: FMC of rural Beatrice established by Prussian Mennonites in 1877 now embraces many cultural backgrounds. Christ remains central in Anabaptist beliefs. During its history, it established a hospital, a day care facility and Mother-to-Mother Ministry, all of which have been given back to the community. In 2003, it initiated the Beatrice Community Growing Project, which benefits Foods Resource Bank. Members are involved in various area social programs. Shepherd and prayer/care groups promote nurture and fellowship. Christian friendship is vital.
