February 18 announcements

This week all congregations in Eastern District & Franconia Conference are praying for Church of the Good Samaritans. Please pray that they continue to seek God’s direction on trying new and different ways to impact the community, that God would show them how to allow people to see the full image of Christ through them, and that God would guide them to a new missionary to add to their missionary support group. To read more about Church of the Good Samaritans, go to franconiaconference.org/profiles.


The Eastern Mennonite University Chamber Singers will perform at Salford Mennonite Church at 7:00 pm on Sunday, March 1.  The program features selections on the theme of “I Will Give You Rest,” an exploration of peace and rest through music.
