this Wednesday at Staunton Mennonite Church beginning at 7:00 pm.
Springdale Mennonite has
invited us to a showing of the film “In this Land: the Camp Lyndhurst
Saga” on Sunday, March 1, at 2 p.m. This 52-minute documentary was filmed
in 2014 at a location near Sherando Lake and tells the fascinating story
of a camp built there during the Great Depression. Its first occupants
were Civilian Conservation Corps workers who constructed the Sherando Lake
Complex and worked on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was
next used to house conscientious objectors who worked in Civilian Public
Service camps. In 1944, during the Second World War, it became home to
German prisoners of war. Some of these POWs worked on local farms. James
Overton, producer and director of the film, will be present to lead
discussion and answer questions following the film. Snacks will be
provided for a time of fellowship afterwards.
Please join us!
Genesis 9:8-14King James Version (KJV)
8 And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed
10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the
cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of
the ark, to every beast of the earth.
11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be
cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be
a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me
and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant
between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that
the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
