Saturday, February 16: Understanding Dreams Workshop for women

Wednesday, February 20: Wednesday Night Fellowship


Weekly Prayer Focus: Let us pray that the Spirit of God will move in our midst as we continue to discern the way forward here at Mt. Clinton Mennonite Church.

Our next Wednesday Night Fellowship will be February 20, instead of the 13th, since we will be having a fellowship meal on February 10. We will have a craft activity (see sign-up on foyer table), games, quilting, and prayer time.

Remember!!! On February 16, from 9-12, Mert Brubaker will provide a workshop on dreams for the women of our congregation. The workshop will be held in the youth room of our church. Remember to sign up (sheet on the foyer table) no later than February 10 if you are planning to attend. Light refreshments will be provided. For questions contact Crystal Horning, or 540-808-9565.

Active members are invited to return a paper pastoral search ballot to the box in the foyer by next Sunday, February 17. Electronic ballots may be returned to Church Council Chair, Paul Yoder, via email ( by February 17.
