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 we
will be assembling 3 types of "KITS" for Church World Service. 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.
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.
Fall Love Feast will be Sunday October 1st. We believe in "open" communion,
so all Christians are invited to join us in a symbolic fellowship meal, 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.
