Pohick Post

July/August 2016

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

The summer months are now upon us. And although many families are heading out on vacation, there's still plenty to do here at Pohick!

It all begins on July 9th, with members of our Youth Group and their Sponsors will be heading out on their week-long Mission Trip to Charleston, West Virginia. Email them a note of encouragement that week, cheering them on as they go about serving in the name of our Lord.

Vacation Bible School begins on Monday, July 11th, running the whole week from 9 am to noon, with the closing program at 6:30 pm on Friday, July 15. There's still plenty space for students, so Download an application and send it in--and while you're at it, invite the neighbors too!

As for Christian Education over the summer, the rector is currently conducting a four-week class on the prophet Elijah, and our assistant will pick up the baton with a class on his successor, Elisha, in the weeks following. Both classes run between the two services, 9-9:45 am, in the parish house annex. Later on during August, Linda Egan will also be offering a class on The Essentials of Music Theory from 8:50-9:30 am on Sundays in the music room.

In this month's EPost, our Rector offers his 2016 installment of Binder's Beach Books for your summer enjoyment, focusing on St. Francis, the topic of last month's parish retreat. Elsewhere, our Assistant writes about what she learned about Christian worship at one of her recent continuing education conferences, while Bob Munson reports on the difficulties endured by Christians in Lebanon.

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