February 2016

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

It seems like only yesterday we were shoveling snow from the "Snowzilla" Blizzard of 2016. And so it is a bit jarring to consider that Lent will be upon us before we know it! This year, Ash Wednesday falls on February 10th, and in order to give everyone an opportunity for starting off with a Holy Lent, we will be offering four services throughout that day, at 7 am, noon, 4:30 and 7:30 pm. The five Wednesdays following, we will continue through the season with our series of Lenten potlucks (6:30 pm), Studies (7:10 pm) and Celtic-style Services (8 pm).

Before we get to Lent, however, we still have a few other goings on, including our Chili Cookoff (Feb 6, 6 pm), the Super Bowl party for our Young People (Feb 7), and our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper (Feb 9, 5-7 pm). Just after the start of Lent, we will begin our Adult Inquirers' Class on Sunday, Feb. 14th during the Sunday School Hour. On that same day and time, Bob Munson will also begin an adult-ed series on the Protestant Reformation in the Vestry House. The next day, Presidents' Day, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew will be hosting the George Washington Service, Breakfast and Address at 8 am.

In this month's Post, the Rector writes a follow-up to his 2015 annual report, presenting demographic studies of the parish that the vestry and congregation have begun to explore and discuss as an entree to discovering new ways to attract and minister to younger families. In a similar vein, our Assistant offers some information on the Alpha Parenting Teenagers Course that will begin on February 21st at the same time that EYC meets (6:30-8 pm). Likewise, our Youth Minister announces the inaugural application period for the Robert and Bernice Kilmarx Scholarship for post-secondary education, open to graduating High School Seniors who have been consistently active in Pohick's Youth Programs.

Elsewhere, Bob Munson writes about the plight of Christians in Pakistan, while Don Brownlee reports on the outcome of the recent Primates gathering in Canterbury.
