Today we welcome Beryl Jantzi to our worship service. Beryl is the Southern District Minister (formerly called “Overseer”) and the Director of Stewardship Education for Everence.

There will be a Prayer Meeting at Staunton Mennonite this Wednesday, beginning at 7:00 pm.

You are invited to a “Mission through Music” concert to benefit Mariana Martinez, an international student seeking sponsorship to attend Hesston College. The performance will feature students and alumni from Hesston College and Eastern Mennonite High School. The event will be held Sunday, May 28 at 2:00 p.m. at Park View Mennonite Church. A free-will offering will be collected for the Martinez family.

You are welcome to take the DVD’s and VHS tapes from the Fellowship Hall. Any that are left by the end of May will be donated.

We will not be holding Sunday School during June, July, and August. Please join us at 10:00 am each Sunday for light refreshments and fellowship.

Please pray for:

• Our friends and families as they travel during the summer months.



1 Kings 18:7, “She went and told the man of God, and he said, ‘Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.’”
