Our Homecoming Weekend, September 16-17, will feature a Saturday Service Project, a Sunday
Morning Worship to Re-Dedicate our Sanctuary following renovations including new hardwood flooring, newly redesigned and carpeted
chancel area, and a renewed entranceway, and Guest Preacher Jeff Carter (President of Bethany Theological Seminary and formerly
Pastor at our Manassas congregation.)
On Saturday, beginning at
Noon, we will be assembling 3 types of "KITS" for Church World Service Hurricane Relief. Clean-up
Buckets are given to people following floods, hurricanes and tornados - each bucket is filled with basic cleaning
and disinfecting supplies. Hygiene Kits are zipper locked bags filled with items like washcloth, soap, toothpaste, comb, etc.
School kits are filled with the basic supplies necessary for children to be prepared to return to school after a disaster.
These kits are shipped both throughout the United States to disaster areas and around the world. Church World Service is the
world-wide relief organization born out of the work of the National Council of Churches of Christ and includes and works with
over 30 denominations and their various relief and disaster ministries. A list of supplies for each type of kit is available
at the Church. We will also be constructing a Fire circle for vespers, etc and celebrate by making s'mores with its first
Sunday will feature a very special worship time at 11:00 AM followed
by a Pot Luck/Fellowship Dinner. Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share. The Church will supply plates and utensils,
drinks and cups, etc. You can help by bringing salads, desserts, and sides.
2017 Apple Festival is September 30th! See the details
on the Apple Fest page.
Love Feast will be Sunday October 1st during the 11:00 AM worship service. We believe in "open" communion,
so all Christians are invited to join us in a symbolic fellowship meal (vegetarian option available), the washing of feet
(as Jesus did at the Last Supper), and the Bread & Cup of Holy Communion. Not sure you can wash feet? We have an alternative
available, or you can just watch that part of the service. Mark your calendar now for the October date!
Things could change frequently, so it is a good idea to visit this page as often as
possible to keep up to date.
