Acts 9:17, “Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, ‘Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

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.


So that my soul may praise you


On the Damascus Road, Jesus said to Saul, “Why do you persecute
me?” Jesus identified with the suffering believers. Believers still suffer
today, and Jesus still identifies with them. Are we the suffering? Or are
we part of the violence done to believers?
May the Lord provide an Ananias for us when our eyes are clouded
with scales, so that we, with Paul, regain our sight and proclaim Jesus as
the Son of God.


Leader: O Lord, in our distress we cry to you for help,
when the life is draining out of us, we know we need you.
If we die, who will tell of your faithfulness?
People: Weeping may linger for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
Leader: Turn our mourning into dancing;
take off our sackcloth and clothe us with joy
so that we may praise you and not be silent.
All: O Lord our God, we will give thanks to you forever. Amen.


In times of lack, we despair about not having enough, but Jesus
comes to us and there is abundance for all. Let us cast our nets on the
other side of worry and follow the risen Lord!
—Diane Zaerr Brenneman, Wellman, Iowa
