Jenifer Bradford would like to invite everyone to a meal to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her coming to the United States immediately after church today. Jenifer plans to share during the dessert time about her immigration experiences.

Ten Thousand Villages is collecting gently worn shoes for Well of Hope, a nonprofit organization providing opportunities for Kenyan widows to earn income from the reselling of used shoes. Income helps to provide safe shelter for their children. Tie each pair of shoes together with a piece of yarn, which can also be used by the widows for additional projects. There will be a box in the coat room for shoe donations.

There will be an Election Day Communion service here at Staunton Mennonite on November 6th beginning at 7:00 p.m. Please see the website for more information:

Please Prayer For:

  • The family of Dorcas Hanbury as they mourn her passing.
  • Susan Huyard as she undergoes chemotherapy this week.
  • Tracey Lisi as she awaits news following her recent biopsy.
  • Norma Greenleaf, healing at home following heart surgery.
  • Joyce Showalter as she heals following shoulder surgery.
  • BJ Rohr and Merton Greenleaf, our friends and family dealing with cancer and its treatment.

Mark 10:48, “Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’”
