Isn’t it wonderful when we can witness first-hand God’s promises of faithfulness to His believers? During this season of transition at Laurelville, I am excited to share God’s present-day illustration of His faithfulness.

First, we’d like to thank those who came to our Spring Association Gathering— an amazing celebration of music, message, past service, and new beginnings. Together we celebrated Michael Yoder and his service to Laurelville, reflected upon thought-provoking messages: “The Journey to Know our Place” and “Hospitality: Welcoming the Unknown”, experienced multi-generational instrumental worship, and fellowshipped in traditional Laurelville fashion complete with people mover rides and popcorn on the hill.

Second, I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks for your warm hospitality in welcoming me to Laurelville as the new Executive Director. Whether in-person, via message and/or prayers from afar, you have made me feel so welcome, and for you I give thanks.

Third, I am pleased to share this announcement of God’s faithfulness to Laurelville… thanks to a generous matching gift from an anonymous donor, $64,300 was raised in donations to-date this spring.  THANK YOU! We praise God for your contributions; a reflection of God’s bountiful grace and goodness. It is through you, our donors’ steadfast loyalty that Laurelville continues to fulfill its mission day after day and year after year.

Finally, mark your calendars, and plan to join us for Laurelville’s Open House: Saturday, June 11; 1-4 pm, and Fall Gathering: October 21, 22 & 23. I welcome your continued prayers as we journey into a new season together.

In His service,
Jeanette*
