Worship Update

      Outdoor Worship continues through the month of May at 11:00 a.m. weather permitting.  Bring a lawn chair and dress for the weather!  If there is rain, please check your email, the Linville Creek  Facebook page, or WHSV for cancellations.  Online Sunday morning worship links will be sent out  on Sunday afternoon to those we have email addresses for.  You may now stream worship live on YouTube if you are not here on Sunday morning. We are also making DVDs and CDs of the worship.  If you are not receiving worship in one of these forms, and would like to be, please contact us.

Disaster Auction

The Shenandoah District Disaster Auction Coordinating Committee has decided to hold in-person auctions at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds (4808 S Valley Pike, Harrisonburg) on May 21-22 in the Barn Complex. The recent change in outdoor gathering restrictions has now made it possible for the Friday evening livestock and Saturday morning auctions to take place, although with social distancing and mask-wearing required. Unfortunately, the oyster and ham dinner and the Saturday morning breakfast and lunch offerings will not be available. There will be other food items available for purchase such as fried chicken and sandwiches. 

Some things you could consider donating for the auction:  plants (preferably potted) and baked goods (wrapped please).

If you have not picked up an auction book, there are still some available on the table on Sunday mornings.  The items in there plus many others will be available for viewing beginning at 1 p.m. on Friday.

Coins for the Auction – There will be a jar on the table on Sunday mornings where you can empty your pockets and purses of all your spare coins!

Pie Baking – We will be baking a few pies for the Disaster Auction on Friday, May 21.  Please contact Lois Rhodes if you can help in any way.
