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 Kathy today to determine what food you can bring. Please also bring a salad or dessert, and your own lawn chairs.

The Sister Care group will meet this Wednesday at Kathy’s at 7:00 pm.

Please consider donating from a list of items for Thanksgiving boxes to be distributed by the Valley Mission. We will be collecting the nonperishable foods at the front of the sanctuary through November 15.

The annual Mennonite Women of Virginia Retreat will be held October 31-November 1 at Massanetta Springs Resort. Sharon Clymer Landis, co-author of The Spacious Heart: Room for Spiritual Awakening, will be sharing on the theme “Our Stories, God’s Story.”

Please pray for:

• The Anderson family as they transition to life as a family of four.
• The refugee crisis in Europe.


Mark 10:43b-44, “…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.”

No one truly knows Christ unless they follow Him daily in life" - Hans Denck

Thank you for joining us in worship today.  If this is your first time at Staunton Mennonite,
please fill out the “Welcome” card in the back of the pew and place it in the offering plate.


His life an offering


From out of the wilderness, come.
Come, you who call out for rescue.
The Lord is here among us.
The Lord gathers us in and bids us welcome.
The Lord will show us salvation.


Leader: Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our
diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by
God, and afflicted.
People: Lord, we have all gone astray;
we have all turned to our own way.
Leader: The Lord speaks: Those who love me, I will deliver;
I will protect those who know my name.
When they call to me, I will answer them;
I will be with them in trouble;
I will rescue them and honor them.


What do we know of offering?
We offer our money and our talents and our time,
sometimes without thinking,
sometimes begrudgingly,
to be used for the work of your church.
But you, O Christ, offered up prayers, supplications,
and ultimately your life for the world.
May we offer this small token
with intention,
with hope,
in remembrance and honor of your love for the world.
Amen. — Emily Toews, Drake, Saskatchewan
