Both Sunday Morning Services Now Mask-Optional

This past Sunday we announced a change to our mask policy. Beginning this Sunday, June 6th, both the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services will be mask-optional. We arrived at this decision as a result of changing public guidelines and practices in conjunction with feedback we received from those in our body.

We will continue to offer a 'self-serve' nursery experience for both services. And kids' church will only be offered during the 11:00 am service.  

We look forward to worshipping together this Sunday.

Blessings.-The Elders

Communication from Southern District of Virginia Mennonite Churches: New District Minister
The Southern District Counsel has called Kevin Gasser as the next District Minister, beginning June 1. Kevin follows Beryl Jantzi, who served in the role for eleven years. Kevin will also continue at Staunton Mennonite Church, where he has served as pastor since 2006. Kevin is married to Sonya, an Occupational Therapist at Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center. They have two children, Paxton and Hadley. Kevin enjoys spending time outdoors with friends and family, reading and studying theology, and a good cup of coffee. He hopes to find ways for the churches of our district to work together to fulfill the Great Commission, teaching and baptizing in the name of Jesus Christ throughout Augusta County, and to the furthest corners of the earth.

Caution: Bird Nest in Church Parking Lot
A killdeer bird has built a nest and laid eggs in our church parking lot. Orange cones have been placed around the nest. Please be aware of these cones as you are pulling in or backing out of your parking space. Please try not to get too close to the nest, as the mother bird needs to stay on it. Once hatched the babies will quickly leave the nest. Thank you for exercising caution as we watch out for these creatures!
