Shekinah women’s vocal ensemble will present a fall concert of uplifting sacred and secular music on Saturday, October 22, at 7pm at Park View Mennonite Church. Admission is by donation ($10/person suggested). It has been a delight to work on this music together to share with our community, and we hope to see you there! Shekinah plans to perform without masks, but appreciates audience masking when possible. For more information about the group, please visit www.shekinahmusic.net.
Join women at a Weekend Retreat for Women of All Ages on "Speaking the Truth in Love" based on Ephesians 4:14-16. This November 11-13 retreat at Richmond Marriott Short Pump, Glen Allen, Va., will feature Sara Wenger Shenk as presenter, and Rachel Stutzman as music leader, and is sponsored by Mennonite Women of Virginia. See the retreat brochure.
Please take time to prayerfully consider how you can contribute to the building fund. We ask that the pledge forms be returned to the church office by October 30th. Forms were emailed to the congregation last week, but are also available from the credenza in the church foyer. You can contact Annie King, Jim Mumaw, Rod Burkholder, or Trevor Oyer with any questions you may have. One of the important things we want to emphasize during this process is that funds designated to the building fund should be above and beyond your budget tithe.

New Exhibit Opening at the Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center
On October 9 at 3pm the Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center will open a new exhibit and building: “Friends of a Feather: Mennonites and Brethren in the Valley Poultry Industry,” housed in a replica turkey brooder house on the Heritage Center's campus. Hobey Bauhan, president of the Virginia Poultry Federation, will give an address, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit: https://brethrenmennoniteheritage.org/events.
A call for Actors and volunters: The Heritage Center is preparing for two unique historical events later this year, needing actors and actresses of various ages, as well as volunteers--serving the meal for the first event, tour guides for the second event, setup and cleanup for both events, etc. Visit the website at https://brethrenmennoniteheritage.org/:
Fire in the Valley is a dinner theater to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Silver Lake Mill. It brings to life the story of Daniel Bowman (the owner of Silver Lake Mill from 1839 to 1884) and his family during the "Burning" campaign of October 1864. We are planning for performances on November 18 and 19 at 6 pm each night (please note the change in dates from our summer newsletter).
Watchman Tell Us of the Night is a dramatized Christmas tour of the Heritage Center. Visitors will progress through four different buildings on our campus, each with a scene that brings to life what Christmas Eve in 1864 might have been like for Brethren and Mennonites in the Shenandoah Valley. These special tours will take place on December 17 and 18, from 4-7 pm each evening.
