March 20 announcements

Souderton Mennonite Church invites you to their “House of Prayer”, open daily through April 1 from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. With this year’s theme, “Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying”, they invite you to come and experience the presence of God as if through the eyes of a child, approaching God with openness, honesty, trust, carefree spontaneity, imagination, insistence and joy.  Youth Groups welcome. If you have questions, please call the church office at 215-723-3088. 

 

Discovery: A Comic Lament is coming to Dock Mennonite Academy (EC-8) at 7:00 pm on Friday, April 20.  Starring Ted Swartz, owner/creative director of Ted & Company Theaterworks, and Michelle Milne, this latest production of Ted & Co weaves through time and geography, from Europeans “discovering” the New World to the Kansas wheat fields and pipelines of the present, offering both comic and challenging glimpses into the absurdity of white settler oppression of Indigenous Peoples and the land we live on. Admission is free, and an offering will be taken.  For more information, go to tedandcompany.com.
