Today we conclude our series on “Redeeming Revelation.” The sermons will build upon one another, so if you miss one, make sure to find it at, where both full-text and audio versions can be accessed.

Are you interested in supporting a missionary in a very practical way? Sylvia Yoder has a list of ways that you can contribute to missionaries from Thailand to Harrisonburg through Mennonite Women of Virginia.

Our church children have been invited to participate in Vacation Bible School at Springdale (June 15-19, 6pm, meal at 5:30) and Lynside (June 26-29, 6:30pm). Please see Kevin for more details.

The offering on June 29th will be divided evenly between Virginia Mennonite Conference and Virginia Mennonite Missions.

Save the date: July 15th will be our annual ice cream social at the park!

Please Prayer For:

  • Pam Humphries, healing at UVa after open-heart surgery.

  • Those traveling this summer.

Revelation 21:5, “He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’”

In the image of God


O triune God;
Father, Son, Holy Spirit;
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
God beyond us, God with us, God always among us;
You are holy, three-in-one, ever entwined in a dance of grace.
Get us up off our feet today that we may join the dance, and
give you glory in word, in deed, and in song.


Lord, our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth! You
have set your glory in the heavens. When we look at the moon
and stars, we wonder why you bother with us humans. Yet you
made us. Help us to see ourselves and everyone we meet from
your perspective. Help us to treat others with the respect an image
bearer of God deserves. Amen.


Leader: Farewell, brothers and sisters. Listen to my appeal:
Be of one mind. Live in peace.
The God of love and peace be with you,
People: and also with you.
Leader: Greet one another with a holy kiss.
Go into all the world.
People: Make disciples. Teach them God’s commandments.
Leader: Remember the love of God.
Remember the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember the communion of the Holy Spirit.
All: Remember, God is with us always. Amen.
—Norma B. Duerksen, Marion, Kansas.
