Church Outdoors & Ice Cream Party at 9:30am at the Peltolas' 
This Sunday we'll meet at 9:30 am at the home of Randy & Liza Peltola. Their address is 53 Spring Branch Lane, Waynesboro. We will be worshiping in their front yard, so please feel free to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on. You're invited to bring your own picnic lunch and stay after the service for some additional fellowship time. Additionally, we'll be having a home-churned ice cream party in honor of our rising middle schoolers -- we hope you'll stick around for a scoop!

In The Event of Inclement Weather, Worship Will Move Indoors at Greenmonte at 10:15am
In the event of any inclement weather this Sunday, the outdoor service will be moved indoors to Greenmonte at 10:15am (1661 Cold Springs Rd, Stuarts Draft). We'll follow the weather forecast closely and alert you to any changes by Saturday evening. If we do meet indoors, we request that everyone age 10 and older observe the Governor's mandate to wear a mask. The sanctuary has been appropriately prepared to seat people in accordance with social distancing guidelines.

Apologies for Our Technical Difficulties on Sunday
During our service on Sunday we had some live streaming issues and the service accidentally posted to Pastor Seth's Facebook account rather than to Greenmonte's. We apologize for the inconvenience for those who were trying to participate in the online service. We love and value every Greenmonte family member, whether you're gathered online or in person.  

The good news is that the entirety of the service is now available for viewing on our Facebook page. We also have the audio and video from Francis Pereira's message on Facebook, Youtube and audio via our app and website. You may also want to check out the worship, kids' message or testimony/sharing time as well.

Early Church: New Beginnings
Our Bible reading this week is: Acts 1-7, Acts 8-10, 12. If you're reading in The Story book, this is Chapter 28.

Memory Verses: John 14:25-27
All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. 

Thank You to Greenmonte from ComfortCare
ComfortCare Women's Health is our local pregnancy resource center. They would like to thank Greenmonte for our contributions to their 2020 Baby Bottle Campaign. Together we filled our baby bottles with $1,201.70. These funds will go towards giving support, hope, and the love of Christ to moms, dads, and babies in our communities. Great job, Greenmonte!
