If we can't "go" to church right now, that doesn't mean we're going to stop "being" church. We will continue to trust God, for nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.

The Administrative Council at Weavers has approved Dennis Kuhns as Interim Pastor at Weavers for an indeterminate period beginning September 1, 2020, until such time as a permanent lead pastor is called. Dennis will be serving in a half time role. As Interim, Dennis will provide shepherding, equipping, facilitating, and coordinating individuals and groups in the congregation in order that we might carry out the ministry of the church. The Weavers Pastoral Search Team will continue in their search for a Lead Pastor.
We have decided to cancel Weavers Church Campout at Highland Retreat this year (Labor Day weekend). If you are still interested in camping that weekend, contact Highland Retreat at (540) 705-0554. Let them know you are from Weavers, as Weavers already has deposits paid on some sites and A-frames.
You are invited to make special contributions to Weavers purchase of the new hymnal, Voices Together! We have placed our pre-order to take advantage of the early discount. The time between the publication of The Mennonite Hymnal (1969) and Hymnal: A Worship Book was 23 years. When Voices Together is published in Fall 2020, it will have been 28 years since the publication of Hymnal: A Worship Book.
A small Sunday school class is meeting at 9:30am on the lawn under the trees in the circle between the drives, before worship starts at 10:30am. They would welcome you to join them - they are physically distancing, sitting 6 feet apart. They are studying Romans. Bring your own chairs.

FIREWOOD - Do you need wood for your stove (or know someone else who does?) We have firewood for sale to benefit the Heritage Center. Felled, cut, split, and dried on the Heritage Center campus. $95 per pickup load (buyer loads). Dry, ash and oak. To order and arrange pick-up, call Ervie Glick at 540-564-3658.
Share through your coins! My Coin Counts has been an annual fundraiser of the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale for MCC and locally through VMM, for ongoing relief efforts among neighbors near and far. Weavers' coin jug will be sitting out each Sunday morning. You may also contribute with currency or checks (payable to Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale and designated for My Coins Count).

Please join us for a Bike Shenandoah 2020 ride on Saturday, September 19, at the VMMissions parking lot in Harrisonburg.

All proceeds benefit VMMissions, MennoMedia, Mennonite CentralCommittee, NewBridges Immigrant Resource Center, Our Community Place, and Roberta Webb Childcare Center. This year we will honor the work of Steve Leaman, who unexpectedly passed away in April, with a double portion of donations to VMMissions, his former workplace. Not a biker? That's all right.
