STAUNTON UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

We were terribly saddened by the recent passing of Harry Mormans. Our deepest sympathy goes out to June, Zach, and the rest of the Mormans family. Harry was a wonderful friend who will be greatly missed.

Sunday School is at 9:30 a.m. Church service begins at 10:30. David Brown is our Pastor and his wife Elaine brings the Children's Message. Glenna Simons is the pianist.

We are planning Vacation Bible School for late July, and a big "Homecoming Sunday" for this Fall. Watch this column for details in the coming weeks.

Remember that the Community Food Pantry is open in the church's basement the last two Wednesday afternoons of each month from 3-5 p.m. The next Food Pantry day will be Wednesday, July 23. Anyone in the Staunton area in need of help is welcome.

We truly appreciate the support of many churches, civic organizations, and individuals in helping to make this needed outreach a success. A container is located in the Staunton Town Office for anyone who would like to contribute non-perishable food items.

Please remember to keep praying for everyone who is battling illness, as well as all the brave men and women of our military and their families. Also remember in prayer all the folks in nursing homes and hospitals, and those who have lost loved ones. Go out of your way to be kind to someone, and pray for everyone.

If you have news to share, send it to me at 4954 W. Happy Holler Rd., Brazil. All news is greatly appreciated.
