Announcements

The Fall Yard Sale is scheduled for October 4. Many people are needed to help, we really need volunteers to provide their pickup trucks and their strong arms to pick up items for donation the evenings of Tues, Sept 30, Weds, Oct 1 and Thursday Oct 2. We also need evening pricing/sorting volunteers. What a great way to meet people in your community! If you can help with this significant event in the life of Washington Farm, please contact Nancy at the church office as soon as possible.



SAVE THE DATE!  It is time to update our Pictorial Church Directory. Our picture church directory will be photographed on September 25-27 from 2-9 PM Thursday and Friday and from 10-5 PM on Saturday.   Clink on this button to sign up.  If you have any questions, please contact Bev Card at 703-360-2528.


Mark the date! The 2014 Washington Farm Charge Conference will be held in the Sanctuary on Saturday, September 20 at 10:00 a.m. This will be our opportunity to look back on the previous year and look forward to the next. Come and meet our new District Superintendent, the Rev. Jeff Mickles. Some of you are being notified that reports of your area of responsibility are due no later than Wednesday, September 10. Please help us to prepare by completing them by the deadline. If you have questions, please contact the office.


Prepare to Cast Off!  A group will be forming from our church (and friends!) to set sail on “Lands of the Bible Cruise,” October 22 - November 4, 2015. This 14-day cruise itinerary includes Istanbul & Ephesus, Turkey, Galilee , Bethlehem & Jerusalem, Israel, Valletta, Malta, Messina, Sicily, and Naples & Pompeii, Italy. A 2-day Rome post-tour is also available which explores both Ancient and Christian Rome. The tour is all inclusive and quite affordable, sailing on the Celebrity Constellation, a very comfortable ship with some of the best food afloat! The pastor, who’s hosting the tour, will hold a no obligation information meeting on Monday, September 15 at 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, September 21 at 12:00 p.m.. All meetings will be held in the Fireplace Room. If you’re interested but cannot attend any of the meetings, please contact the pastor and more information will be provided. Please prayerfully consider taking part on this exciting tour of Paul’s world, the footsteps of Jesus, and the rise of Christendom.
