FOCAS is an interdenominational Christ-centered single adult ministry in Harrisonburg and the surrounding Shenandoah Valley (Virginia) area.  FOCAS seeks to provide Christian single adults with opportunities to share in fellowship, spiritual growth, and service.  FOCAS is both a ministry to single adults, who have needs unique to their singleness, and a ministry by single adults, who love God and are sharing that love in service to others.

October 4 (Friday) - DINNER AT VIRGINIA MENNONITE RELIEF SALE, 6:00 PM at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds. This is a MCC Relief Fund raising event, serving from 4:30 to 7:00 PM.  We will meet at 6 PM by the Cattle Barn at the West entrance.  We will then file through and pay before going through the food line.  The typical menu is: Bar-B-Q beef with the sauce on the side, mac & cheese, peas, coleslaw, bread, fruit salad, cookies, tea, coffee, lemonade.  The price five years ago was $8.00 adult & $5.00 for children. Since then, instead of setting a price, they are asking for donations.  Remember, all proceeds go for Relief Programs.  Children are welcome.  Contact person: Donna at 574-268-7896 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
