Pohick Post

July/August 2018

 

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

The summer months are now upon us. And although many families are heading out on vacation, there's still plenty to do here at Pohick!

It all begins on July 1st, when we will be welcoming our new Assistant, the Rev. Dr. Lynn P. Ronaldi, and her husband, Tom Ronaldi, at both Sunday services. Come on out to greet them, inviting them into our Pohick family!

Three days later, on Independence Day, the Rev. Tom Costa will do a dramatic reading of the Declaration on Independence from the steps of the Historic Church—something that may well have happened 242 years ago. Note that because of the holiday, there will be no Weds services.

The following Saturday, the members of our Youth Group and their Sponsors will be heading out on their week-long Mission Trip to Wallingford, Connecticut. Email them a note of encouragement that week, cheering them on as they go about serving in the name of our Lord.

Vacation Bible School begins on Monday, July 9th, running the whole week from 9 am to noon, with the closing program at 7 pm on Friday, July 13. There's still plenty space for students, so Download an application and send it in—and while you're at it, invite the neighbors too!

As for Christian Education over the summer, the Rector begins a five-week class on the Book of Judges on July 1. Classes will run between the two services, 9-9:45 am, in the parish house annex. Later on during August, Linda Egan will also be offering a class on The Essentials of Music Theory from 8:50-9:30 am on Sundays in the music room.

In this month's EPost, our Rector offers his 2018 installment of Binder's Beach Books for your summer enjoyment, focusing on Christian Friendship, the topic of this year's parish retreat. Elsewhere, Don Brownlee details Bp. Johnston's surprise announcement of his retirement next year, while our Sr. Warden gives an update on several important vestry projects.

Read about these items and much, much more in this month's E-Post!

Finally, save the date for some important events coming up in September, including: the Crab Feast (Sept 8), Sunday School/Choir/EYC/Acolyte Registration (Sept 9), Fair Construction Day (Sept 15), the Activities Fair (Sept 16), Apple Butter Weekend (Sept 21 - 23), and the Pohick Country Fair (Sept 29). Get all these dates automatically by remembering that our website makes use of Google Calendars.
