Pohick Post

June 2016

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

The end of the Sunday School Year is now upon us, offering us the opportunity to celebrate the ministries that have enriched and enlivened our congregation over the past year.

First up is our Sounds of Pohick Concert, held this Saturday, June 4th at 4 pm, with reception following. Come on out and enjoy the joyous strains of all of our choirs, as well as the Pohick Pickers!

The next day is Youth Sunday, when our Young People will take a greater role in leading worship at the 10 am service (that is also the first Sunday of our Summer Schedule, with services at 8 & 10 am). We will also be honoring our High School graduates, Sunday school students, Acolytes and Sunday School and EYC staff at that time, as well as announcing the first recipient of the Robert and Bernice Kilmarx Scholarship. and recognizing one of our couples with a Lifetime Acheivement Award.

Afterwards, we will be continuing an old Pohick tradition: the Parish Picnic, which will be held the Common room and Annex, with picnic tables outside. As a "thank you" to all of our volunteers, the Vestry will be cooking and providing the burgers, hotdogs and drinks. We ask everyone else to bring a side dish or dessert to share.

Bishop Ted Gulick will be with us for Confirmation two Sundays later on June 19, when this year's group of candidates will be confirmed or received at the 10 am service.

Also coming up: Shrine Mont Parish Retreat (June 24-26), and Vacation Bible School (July 11-15).

In this month's E-Post, our Rector writes about St. Francis, who will be the subject of this year's parish retreat. Elsewhere, our Assistant reflects upon June as a month of potential transitions, while Don Brownlee reports on the appointment of Bp. Susan Goff as an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Liverpool. Bob Munson details some of the challenges facing Christians in Turkey, while our Wardens report on Vestry news and recent facility upgrades.

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