& Irma Disaster Relief:
Our Church is doing to help -
Children's Disaster Services - a Church
of the Brethren program with assistance from the Church of God has been on the scene in South Texas since Monday 8/28! Two
CDS teams are working under the direction of FEMA and our partners at the American Red Cross. CDS provides families with
Child Care while they are applying for FEMA assistance, at shelters, and help with the emotional trauma of the disaster on
children. Our inter-denominational partner, Church World Service, and Brethren Disaster Ministries will also be shipping many
Clean-up Bucket kits, School Supply kits, and Hygiene kits to help with all affected areas. Our congregation is assembling
these kits as part of our Homecoming Celebration on September 16th. To find out how you can help with any of our disaster
ministry, please contact the Church Office at (540) 439-3016 or call Pastor Tim Monn at (540) 905-2182. Oh, and please pray
for everyone touched by the effects of this disaster, they need your compassion and God's help. Staff and kits will soon
be in Florida, too! Pray and help by supporting our disaster ministries.

Our newly re-designed Youth Class
is meeting every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM! Erin Olinger is the teacher. The style is participatory dialogue, and
you can ask the questions that really matter.
In a busy, busy
world, we all need to take time to breathe deep, and spend some time in prayer and meditation, allowing God's Holy Spirit
to speak to our hearts. Our Church stands ready to welcome you into any of our worship and fellowship events.
