Pohick Post

September 2016

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

With the summer winding down and vacations ending, the start of Pohick's program year is right around the corner. Labor Day weekend will mark the last of our summer service hours of 8 & 10 am. We will return to three services (7:45, 9 & 11:15 am) the following week on Sunday, Sept. 11.

That will also be our Sunday school, EYC, Acolyte, and Youth Choir Registration and Ice Cream Social at 10:15 am, as well as our Activities Fair all morning long in the Common Room and Annex. The EYC Kick-off Picnic is later that evening at 5 pm. Classes will start the following Sunday.

September is also the month when we begin in earnest our final preparations for our annual Pohick Country Fair, this year held on Saturday, September 24, 10 am - 3 pm. Fair Construction will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, 8 am - 2 pm on the Fairgrounds, which is also the date of our annual Benefit Crab Feast, 3:30 - 5:30 pm. We'll make the Apple Butter the following weekend, Fri - Sun, Sept. 16 - 18.

On Apple Butter Sunday itself, at the 9 am Coffee Hour, we will be bidding farewell to our Sr. Warden and Parish Nurse, Reed and Carol Heddleston, who will be moving to a suburb of Austin, Tx the next day. Join with us that morning to wish them Godspeed and then later in the afternoon to share in their final Apple Butter canning prior to their move.

In this month's E-Post, our Rector reflects upon the rise of Individualism in America, and how, following in the footsteps of the Early Church, we seek at Pohick to offer a different vision of the world. In a similar vein, our Assistant offers her thoughts on "letting go and letting God." Elsewhere, catch up on property repairs and upgrades in the Jr. Warden's report, as well as more about upcoming events in articles by our Minister of Music, Director of Christian Education and Youth Minister.

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