This evening May 26, Weavers will be hosting the EMHS Touring Choir at 7pm. We will be serving refreshments following the program. Since this is a large gathering (the last regular program of Tour Choir), much help is needed in providing refreshments --cookies, salties, or veggie/fruit trays.
Happy Birthday wishes this week to Abby Byler, Sara Byler, David Alleman, Ruth Knicely, Edith Kuhns, Helen Driver, Kristi Driver and Erin Knicely.
See a printed bulletin for Marilyn Schlabach's new phone number. Make the change in your church directory!
Needed for VBS: Jars, jelly jar size or smaller...like baby food jars; also several Little Tikes playhouses to borrow (do you have a neighbor to borrow from?).
Get ready for Who Is My Neighbor? VBS Peace Camp 2019, where children will learn about neighbors near and far! Fun activities will help Bible stories come to life and lead children deeply into Scripture focused on God’s care and compassion for neighbors close at hand and around the world. Children ages 4 through grade 6 are welcome to this time of worship, games, crafts, snacks, friends, and fun! The Mt. Clinton/Weavers VBS theme Who Is My Neighbor? will take place at Weavers on June 23-27 from 6:00-8:15. It begins with group building at 6:00 with supper served to all participants and staff too.
VBS orientation will be Tues May 28, 6:30pm in Shady Oak for all persons helping with VBS (except meal prep/servers).
Some time ago the PCRC engaged the congregation with the pastoral evaluations for Pastor Regina. The evaluation for Pastor Regina was overwhelmingly positive and affirming of her ministry. PCRC and Administrative Council have unanimously recommended to the congregation her formal reappointment for continuing service. Regina's covenant is for 3 years (the typical length - ending August 2022). Ballots will be received from members on Sunday June 2, 2019. If an absentee ballot is needed, please contact Sandi at the church office.
Mark your calendars for Virginia Mennonite Conference Assembly, July 18-20, in Harrisonburg. The theme is "Cultivating Good Soil." Worship services will be at Lindale Mennonite Church; delegate sessions will be at Eastern Mennonite School. There will be a Mennonite Disaster Service house-building project onsite (including dedication), and VMMissions will have their Centennial Celebration. More information and registration to come.
The Shenandoah Valley Mennonite Historians are hosting a tour of new churches in the Valley on June 1. Saturday from 9 until 1 pm. The focus is on new ethnic and language groups. The tour will include tours and conversation with leaders of 3 new churches. including Swahili, Spanish and Laotian speaking churches. The three groups are in Harrisonburg or within several miles. We are asking participants to drive to the three locations and will not be furnishing a bus. The tour will begin at 9 am at Harrisonburg Mennonite Church and end at noon with a lunch served by one of the churches. The cost is $25 per person including the hearty lunch.
Enjoy ‘Music Under the Oaks’ with The Walking Roots Band. Free concert on Sun June 9, 4 pm, at Trissels Mennonite Church, 11246 Hisers Lane, Broadway. Refreshments. Bring blanket or lawn chair. (Inside in case of rain.)
Now is a great time to register a camper who has never attended Highland Summer Camps before, especially if you know someone (not a sibling) who is a returning camper this year. Just make sure you’re both registered by June 1st, and mention the person who referred you when you register online at www.highlandretreat.org/summer-camp or call 540-705-0512. Both the new camper and the returning camper will receive a $25 certificate to use in the Highland camp store!
The 7th Annual Motorcycles for Missions ride is June 14-15. Motorcycles for Missions continues to be the one of the largest fundraising events for VMMissions. We would like to see this year be the most successful yet. Learn more, including the itinerary, route, sponsors, and safety information at vmmissions.org/motorcycle-for-missions/
