Elkharthttps://www.mennonitemission.net/Serve/units/mennonite voluntary service/ElkhartElkhartIndiana<p>​<strong>Join a community.</strong> The Elkhart MVS unit is located in a racially and economically diverse neighborhood. MVSers enjoy this diverse community, as well as the network of former MVSers who now call Elkhart home. Recently the MVS unit has been 'trying on' non-traditional housing, working with the needs of the individual participants while maintaining the importance of community, service, simple living and faith. MVSers are able to take advantage of the public transportation system and a 10-mile bike trail, connecting participants to nearby Goshen, Ind. Several Mennonite institutions are located in Elkhart including Anabaptist Mennonite Seminary.</p><p><strong>Join a congregation.</strong> Fellowship of Hope (FOH) is the supporting congregation for the Elkhart unit. <span aria-hidden="true"></span>The 30 people who gather each Sunday have a strong commitment to work for peace and justice. Church members are involved in and supportive of a variety of local non-profits. Fellowship of Hope offers a strong sense of community that derived from their historical beginning as an intentional community. FOH invites participants to join the informal but vibrant worship and welcomes MVSers wherever they are in their life and faith journeys. MVSers are invited to participate in congregational life including shared meals together and Beloved Community, a men's group that meets to discuss the beloved community that MLK envisioned.</p><p><strong>Join a cause.</strong> Elkhart is a great place for those exploring social work or peace and justice, as well as other opportunities. There are a variety of ways to explore vocation as well as offering your gifts. Due to the racial, economic and theological diversity found in Elkhart, volunteers should have a heart for building community and connections across many differences.</p>
