October 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

This year's Apple Butter and Country Fair weekends were fantastic outreach events, with lots of the community showing up to see all the ministry that is going on at Pohick Church and with our many neighborhood partners. Thanks to Anne Derbes & Jeff Parker, our Fair Chair and Co-Chair, to Randy Brooks, our Apple Butter Coordinator, and to all our many volunteer leaders and helpers for all their hard work in making this year's events a great success!

If you were out of town for this year's fair, click here to see a few pictures of the day on our parish Facebook page.

This year, October begins with a wonderful celebration: the rededication of the renovated portions of our Parish House on Sunday, October 4th at the conclusion of the 9 am service. Read our Rector's column to learn more!

St. Francis will be smiling later that same day when we will have our Blessing of the Animals at 4 pm at the outside Altar, near the lower parking lot. Bring your pets out (on leashes or in carriers) for a wonderful little service, complete with music, the sprinkling of holy water, and even a pet-friendly Coffee Hour!

Adult ed has also fired up with the Alpha Express course now underway on Weds evenings, 6 - 7:30 pm, along with the Rector's class, "Paul through Mediterranean Eyes," during the Sunday School hour between the two later services.

In this month's post, our Assistant reflects theologically on the approach of Fall, while our Minister of Music writes about one of the hymns of Charles Wesley. Elsewhere you'll learn about the goings on around the Anglican Communion, some thoughts about our upcoming Stewardship campaign, and information about planning for November's Christmas Mart.

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