Pohick Post

January 2018

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

Happy New Year to one and all!

After enjoying wonderful Advent and Christmas celebrations, on December 31st, we bid a fond farewell to the Rev. Dr. Ruth E. Correll as she retired from her Assistant's position at Pohick following nearly seven years of faithful service. Her final column appears in this month's edition of the Pohick Post.

On a related note, our Rector writes an appreciation of Ruth's ministry in his Annual Report to the Parish, while also detailing plans for the road ahead, including his introduction of our new part-time Priest Associate. She will begin with us on Sunday, January 14th, which is also the date of our annual parish meeting following the 9 am service.The main order of business will be to elect four new vestry members and to ratify the nominated youth representative. Take an advanced peek at the biographies for the slate of nominees.

We'll also be hearing several reports from the Rector and vestry officers about the advances of the previous year, as well as the challenges that lie ahead in 2018, including the search for a new Assistant to the Rector. Our Treasurer and Stewardship Chair will be among those giving oral reports. Generally, they have good news on the financial stewardship of the parish, with the only caveat being that we have not yet received 2018 Commitment/Pledge Cards from many longtime members who have regularly pledged in the past. This suggests that their cards are still sitting somewhere on the kitchen counter! We invite such parishioners, along with any who have not yet turned in their commitment/pledge cards, to do so in advance of our parish meeting to help make the report an even better one!

In this month's EPost, you'll also find reports from our Wardens on the state of the congregation and our physical plant. Both Fuzzy Thurston and Fred Crawford are ending their terms on the vestry this month, and so we thank them both for their devoted service to Christ at Pohick. Elsewhere, Don Brownlee offers his monthly roundup of Anglican Communion news, while Doug Smith puts forth an appeal for tutors for our Tuesday Night Gunston Tutoring program, which is now in its third decade. You'll also find information about a series of Saturday morning seminars on emergency preparedness and personal health & welfare, as well as a preview of the Ann Mason Guild's Chili Cook-off and the Docent's Mardis Gras dinner in February (Feb. 3 and 10, respectively).

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