 Sunday Worship, October 14, 2018


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.




We extend a friendly welcome to each worshiper. It is a great joy to glorify God who has given us life and salvation in Christ.

 Our Weavers Fall Block Party, Oct. 31, 5:30-7:30pm is for everyone of all ages!  More information is available on the foyer credenza.  If you can help make vegetable soup, please let Lisa Hertzler know. Sign up for other needs.


Virginia Weaver(Mother) received many [birthday] cards including many from the WMC family.   She appreciates them so much, remembers everyone and tells me who they are (!).  Many wrote memories and other notes so I am slowly reading these to her. These mean so much to her as she cannot move on her own, except her hands a bit, and yet her mind is still good most days.  She has little and often no pain, she says, so that is a blessing.  Your cards and letters lift her spirits. Thanks so much for your support.                                                                   - Bob Weaver

A century ago, war fever swept the United States. Mennonites and other people of peace were unprepared and paid the price. What if war fever swept the United States today? Are we again prepared? How would we live out our non-resistance or pacifism?  How would we witness for peace? The Voices of Conscience exhibit will be open on the main (2nd) floor Eastern Mennonite University’s Hartzler Library during regular library hours from October 1 - November 17. (Those hours are: 7:45 AM - 11:30 PM Monday-Thursday, 7:45 AM - 8 PM Friday, 10 AM - 6 PM Saturday, and 2 PM - 11:30 PM Sunday.  This traveling exhibit, created by the Kaufmann Museum in Newton, Kansas, remembers the witness of peace-minded people against the First World War 1914-1918. See the foyer bulletin board for presenters and more information.

Dear Mennonite Church USA constituency from Glen Guyton, Executive Director, Mennonite Church USA: Through the proposed merger of The Mennonite, Inc. (TMI) and Mennonite World Review (MWR), Mennonite Church USA will lose its official media platform (both print and digital) dedicated to MC USA voices and news. The merged organization will function as an independent editorial voice serving a variety of Anabaptist communities including MC USA, but without organizational ties to any particular Anabaptist denomination. Read more background information and Frequently Asked Questions here:   http://mennoniteusa.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Merger-FAQ-_-Final.pdf  Through this survey, the Executive Board and staff are seeking input from the broader church as we navigate the merger process and discern our communication needs moving forward.  Please complete the survey at the following link no later than October 29. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TMIdissolution
