Pohick Post

May 2017

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

Spring continues this month, coinciding nicely with the Easter season, which this year runs into early June—Sunday, June 4th to be precise, the Day of Pentecost, when Bishop Johnston will be with us for confirmation, reception, and baptism. That leaves us the entire month of May to enjoy the resurrection of our Lord through our weekly worship, as well as through a number of events and celebrations.

It begins with our Spring Workday on Saturday, May 6th, from 9 am to 2 pm. Come on out and help us spruce up the building and grounds, pausing at noon for a wonderful luncheon. Later that day, from 4:30 - 7 pm, the Martha Guild will be sponsoring a Winetasting event at the Cutler residence to benefit their many Outreach projects. Tickets are still on sale: $30 per person. In a similar vein, the 20s and 30s Group will meet for worship at the 11:15 am service on May 7th, followed by a group trip to The Winery at Bull Run for a picnic. African Team Ministries sales will also begin that day for two Sundays in support of missionary work in Africa.

The Docents will have training for new members on May 13th, 9:30 am - 2:30 pm, with lunch included., while we'll honor all mothers the next morning on Mother's Day, May 14th. Our Churchwide Yard Sale (aka Hodge Podge) will be held the following Saturday, May 20th, from 7 am to 1:30 pm. We've already begun collecting donations for sale in the designated area of the Common Roomr, so drop off the saleable fruits of your Spring cleaning during office hours.

We are now accepting applications for our Shrine Mont parish retreat, June 23 - 25, whose theme this year will be, "Finding an Attitude of Gratitude: How a Spirit of Thanksgiving Can Change Your Life." Please, don't let cost be an issue: there is plenty of scholarship money available for parishioners who would like to participate in the sessions; simply speak to the Rector privately. For your summer planning, don't forget Vacation Bible School on July 10 - 14.

In this month's EPost, our Rector writes about a special Memorial Day service held at Pohick nearly a century ago, while our Assistant offers some insights from C. S. Lewis. Our Sr. Warden writes about the many volunteers who support our Sunday services, while Bob Munson describes the difficulty Christians face in Saudi Arabia.

Read about these items and much, much more in this month's EPost!
