Church Council will meet this Wednesday at 7:00pm. Devotions: Garlan.

Volunteers are needed for an old-fashion barn raising. Local churches are invited to help at the farm of Maynard Weaver on October 15, 16, and 17 to replace a barn that was lost in a recent fire. If you are interested, please call 540-337-5494 for more information.

Save the date: The annual Fall Harvest Party will be held at the Huyard farm on October 24. The Brunswick Stew is going on the fire at 9:00 am and we hope to eat around 1:00 pm. If you plan to come, please talk to Susan to determine what food you can bring. Please also bring a salad or dessert, and your own lawn chairs.

Please pray for:

• The Anderson family as they transition to life as a family of four.
• Those affected by the shooting in Oregon.
• The refugee crisis in Europe.

Treasure in heaven


Our treasure is Jesus,
the Son of God, the High Priest
who knows and understand us.
Let us approach God’s throne of grace with confidence
asking for mercy and grace to help us
today and in all times of need.


As servants of God, we are in charge of God’s household.
Let us use with care the rooms God has given us. Let us use
with care the time God has lent us. Let us use with care the
produce God has gathered for us. Let us use with care the
deeds God has listed for us. Let the records we manage and the
bills we pay, let all our giving and receiving speak our faith and
honor our Lord God Almighty.


Leader: Good Teacher, what must we do to live?
Group 1: Will you teach us to number our days
so we may have wise hearts?
Group 2: Will you teach us to love as you do
so we will sing for joy each morning?
Group 1: Can we know the deeds you do for us, your servants,
and how you show your greatness to children?
Group 2: Will you help us understand your heavenly ways
and guide all the work of our hands?
Leader: Each day we seek you, Good Teacher.
We seek you and live. Amen.
—June Galle Krehbiel, Moundridge, Kansas
