The annual Applebutter Boiling for the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale will be held September 8th and 15th at Friendship Park in Stuarts Draft. Activities start early and end late, so stop by whenever works for you.

There is also a need for many more baked goods for this year’s Relief Sale so please donate generously!

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

Please Prayer For:

  • Susan Huyard and family as she undergoes treatment for breast cancer.
  • Florence Showalter as she undergoes tests to determine the cause of her back pain.
  • Praise God that Teresa Showalter has been declared “cancer free following her treatment for kidney cancer.”

Ephesians 4:29, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.”
