Dear Friends in Christ,

I hope you are all enjoying the summer season, despite the fact that temperatures are now reaching triple digits in this and other areas of the country!

Annual Parish Picnic

I also hope to see all of you back to prepare for our annual parish picnic. The picnic will be Sunday, September 18th at Fort Hunt Park (the same park as last year and the same picnic space). Only two services will be held that day: 7:45 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. A sign-up sheet will go up on the bulletin board in the church undercroft nearer to the time.

Coffee Hour Sign-Up Sheet

Thanks to all who have signed up to host the coffee hour after the 9 a.m. or 11:15 a.m. service on an upcoming Sunday. But there are still “slots” to fill in the next few months. So if you haven’t done so already, please stop at the bulletin board on Sunday and sign up for the rest of July, August, and September. I encourage all of us to be involved in this activity as part of our outreach and evangelism ministries.

New Website

Our parish website is now completely renovated. Please visit the site at http://www.standrewandstmargaret.org. For comments and/or questions, please call James Mathis at 240-593-2880.

Adult Sunday School

We are changing the Sunday School topic as of this Sunday, July 24. We will study the Apostles’ Creed as an important part of our beliefs. We will use a particular teaching resource (a DVD) that traces the origin of the Apostles’ Creed, placing it in its historical context. It examines each phrase, emphasizing its relevance and application to our lives today. We will alternate discussion leaders from Sunday to Sunday.

All parishioners are encouraged to join us every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in basement of the rectory.

Happy summertime, and may the peace of God reign mightily in your heart.

Fr. Thierry
