There will be an Election Day Communion service here at Staunton Mennonite on November 6th beginning at 7:00 p.m. This short service is open to anyone who wants to follow Jesus and is intended to remind us of our primary allegiance to Christ. Please see the website for more information:

The Women’s Care Group will meet at the Zendt’s this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.

Next Sunday’s offering will be split evenly between Virginia Mennonite Conference and Virginia Mennonite Missions.

Staunton Mennonite has offered to donate two Thanksgiving Meal boxes to the Valley Mission. If you are interested in donating an item, please see the bulletin board and sign up.

You’re invited to the Wycliffe Associates 2012 Banquet on November 13th, beginning at 7:00 p.m, to see and experience how God can use you to begin Bible translation in the remaining 2,000 languages without a single word of Scripture. Make your reservation with Glenn or Kathy.

Ten Thousand Villages is collecting gently worn shoes for Well of Hope, an organization providing safe shelter for women and 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 is a box in the coat room for shoe donations.

Please Prayer For:

  • The victims of Hurricane Sandy.
  • Susan Huyard as she deals with the effects of chemotherapy.
  • 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.


This is the commandment, the rules and regulations, that God, your God, commanded me to teach you to live out in the land you’re about to cross into to possess. This is so that you’ll live in deep reverence before God lifelong, observing all his rules and regulations that I’m commanding you, you and your children and your grandchildren, living good long lives.

Listen obediently, Israel. Do what you’re told so that you’ll have a good life, a life of abundance and bounty, just as God promised, in a land abounding in milk and honey.

Attention, Israel!

God, our God! God the one and only!

Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!

Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.

Deuteronomy 6:1-9 (The Message)
