Worship Celebration

   September 24, 2017



Called into God’s Family, we join together

to be transformed through worship,

to nurture one another,

to be equipped to serve Jesus Christ, and

to carry out His mission in the world.





Welcome to all!  In this time of worship, let us still our minds and claim the divine promise: “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10).

Today is our last day to collect coins for My Coins Count, a project of the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale. The money goes for meeting children's basic needs in Albania, Jamaica, Southeast Asia, and Uganda. These are MCC and VMM sponsored programs. The children will come around with cups to collect your coins during the regular offering time.


Next Sunday our offering will be for the EMHS Brotherhood Plan. The amount yet needed to cover the non-budget portion is $3,000.


Next Sunday we will celebrate Communion during our worship service.
