Worship Available

If you cannot join us for outdoor worship, online links are being sent to those we have email addresses for.  We are also making CD’s and DVD’s of the worship.  If you are not currently receiving worship in one of these forms, and would like to be, please contact us.   

Un-Trim-A-Tree

November is Un-Trim a Tree month. The CLAM commission is working with Harrisonburg Rockingham Social Services to provide Christmas gift cards for local needy children. CLAM decided to sponsor 50 children this year, along with a donation for other needs such as food and gifts for the elderly.  Early in November, CLAM will provide an opportunity for signing up to sponsor a child. Social Services is asking for a $25.00 gift card for each instead of gifts this year. CLAM needs your help to provide these children with gifts that they otherwise would not receive. Gift cards will be due to the church by November 29th. In addition, CLAM will be accepting a special donation for H/R Social Services on November 1st & 8th to provide additional assistance where needed. A basket will be provided at the church service.  Contact Beth Hinegardner (bethh72@hotmail.com) if you have questions about the program.

Advent Wreaths

The Christian Education Commission will be preparing materials for Advent wreaths for each family with children and youth to be used throughout the Advent season.  Along with the materials for the wreath, there will be a daily devotional guide.  Families with children will automatically have a bag put together for them, but if you do not have children and would like to be included, please call or email the church office by November 13th.

Book Study

A small group of interested persons is joining together, probably through Zoom, to read and discuss a book.  The book chosen for this study is written by April Love-Fordham and titled St. Francis the the Christian Life:  A Disorderly Parable of the Epistle to the Galatians.  If you are interested in joining this group, please let Martha Reish (reish5m@gmail.com) know soon so she can order a book for you.  As we know numbers and schedules of those involved, we will decide on a time to meet together online.

Global Food Initiative Offering

     Our regular 5th Sunday offering for the Global Food Initiative will be taken on Nov. 29th in addition to our regular offering.  The Global Food Initiative (GFI) is the primary way that the Church of the Brethren assists hungry people in developing food security. Since 1983, GFI (formerly Global Food Crisis Fund) has raised over $8,000,000 for community development projects in numerous countries around the globe.

     Your offering envelopes will be available soon for 2021.  If you do not currently have envelopes for giving and would like to receive them, please talk to Eileen Driver (esdriver@outlook.com).  If you have been receiving envelopes and are not using them, please let Eileen know.
