On Sunday, July 11, the new Staunton Community Center will host an open house/gift shower from 1-4 p.m., in the afternoon to officially welcome the new building into the community.
Meat and drinks will be furnished and everyone attending is asked to bring a covered dish and a gift for the building.
The center can use dish towels, dish rags, dishwashing soap, toilet paper, and other practical items. Also, cash or checks are always welcome and appreciated.
Everyone is invited to come out and see the beautiful building, meet with friends and neighbors and enjoy some food.

Anyone in the Staunton area in need of help is welcome. We truly appreciate the support of Staunton First Christian Church and Staunton Elementary School as well as other churches, civic organizations and individuals in helping to make this needed outreach a success.
Please 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. And pray for a solution to the oil disaster in the Gulf.
Go out of your way to be kind to someone and pray for everyone.
