We are happy to welcome Laura Latimer to our worship service this morning. Laura is the Development and Communications Coordinator for the Valley Mission.

Our annual Ice Cream Social will be held at Gypsy Hill Park on July 17th. We will plan to meet around 6:00 pm. Please bring sandwiches and a side to share. If you have an ice cream maker and are interested in making ice cream, please see Kathy.

Our 2012 Penny Power donations will be split evenly between tornado relief work in West Liberty, KY and Mennonite Central Committee’s ongoing relief efforts in the Middle East countries of Syria and Lebanon.

Recent shipments of relief kits to Syrian refugees in Jordan have depleted the supply that Mennonite Central Committee keeps in reserve; please help them restock to be able to act quickly in a crisis or disaster. To see how to assemble relief kits please visit Also, your gifts of money are urgently needed to respond to the crisis in the region, along with your prayers for peace.

Please Prayer For:

  • Paul Duncan, recovering from a heart attack.
  • Teresa Showalter as she receives treatment for cancer of the kidney.
  • Those who will be traveling during this summer.

2 Corinthians 8:15, “The one who gathered much did not have too much,
and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”

Thank you for joining us in worship today.  If this is your first time at Staunton Mennonite,
