July/August 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

It's summertime, when things at Pohick slow down a little, but not too much!

It all begins on July 11th, with members of our Youth Group and their Sponsors will be heading out on their week-long Mission Trip to Sunbury, Pennsylvania. 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 13th, running the whole week from 9 am to noon, with the closing program at 7 pm on Friday, July 17. 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!

In this month's EPost, our Rector offers his 2015 installment of Binder's Beach Books for your summer enjoyment. Our Assistant, who has just left on vacation, writes about a Sunday school class she will be teaching upon her return. In the meantime, our Rector will be offering an Adult ed class on King David during the month of July, running from 9 - 9:45 am in the Annex. Elsewhere, Don Brownlee previews some of the issues being discussed at General Convenion, which is in progress as the EPost goes to publication. One late-breaking bit of news is that Bp. Michael Curry of North Carolina was elected late last week to be the next Presiding Bishop, a nine-year term that will begin in November.

Don't forget that Kitchen Renovations will begin on July 18th and last through August, so the back hall with its sink will be used for Coffee Hour set-up during that time (though Coffee Hour itself, of course, will continue in the Common Room). We're just over halfway towards funding this $74,000 project, and are still seeking donations to completely underwrite it. If you would like to contribute to this drive, simply mail a check into the church and write "Kitchen Renovation Fund" in the memo section.

Finally, in this regard, the 2015 Wishing Well is now up, with several coins to be cast for items to help in our Sunday school, Parish Office, and in our Worship. If you feel led to "cast a coin" follow the instructions on that webpage for doing so--or at the display in the Common Room.

Remember, Pohick Church has a FaceBook page and so if you want to see occasional photos and news bulletins on your newsfeed, follow the link and "like" us, if you have not already done so.
