Dinners for 8ish

* Every person/couple will be assigned to a group of 8ish that will gather at least 4 times between Oct. - May for dinner. Kids are absolutely welcome (and encouraged!). * Each month, a different host/hostess will coordinate the group and pass the torch to the next month's host/hostess. If you are unable to host, make that known and you can be "skipped" on the rotation. Others in the group may be able to host multiple times. * The host/hostess prepares the main dish and others in the group bring the sides. Mains and sides can be coordinated a week ahead to complement one another. * Food allergies can be considered in food planning. * The purpose of D48 is to enjoy each other's company.

To participate, sign up in the church lobby or contact Sarah Yaneza at or 703-209-9189 by September 30.

USA Group Travel with Rev. Bob and Sandy Paulen

This spring we shall be visiting some of our great American National Parks. See the splendors of the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce and Lake Powell before the crowds arrive. This scenic experience will be begin in Phoenix of May 3rd and conclude in Las Vegas on May 10th. This is a fully escorted land only tour currently costing $1,395. You arrange and pay for your own flights which give you the flexibility to travel out west prior to the tour, after the tour, or both. We shall be using Caravan Tours which has a 65 year history in National Parks touring and has the leverage to offer housing within the parks as opposed to many tours that use motels in the vicinity of the parks. These tours have a history of selling out quickly. Therefore, reservation must be made prior to January 10th, 2018. For more information and a complete itinerary visit or email Bob at or call him at 302-226-2269./p>

Prayer Weavers

The Prayer Weavers knit and crochet prayer shawls, blessing blankets, lap robes, pocket prayer squares, hats for the narthex Christmas tree and other items. We hope that the recipients of our creations will feel God's arms wrapped around them as they receive and use our "prayer weavings." The Prayer Weavers meet in the chapel from noon until two on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. If you are inter-ested in participating, join us. If our meeting times don't fit your schedule, be a prayer weaver "in absentia." Knit or crochet at home, waiting at an appointment, riding as a passenger in the car...Use your own patterns or get patterns from Nancy Bennett, Dottie Dipoli, Amy Peregoy, Nancy Blizzard, Pinterest or Ravelry, or another one of our group. Minimum sizes for prayer shawls: 72" x 16", Blessing blankets: 24" x 22", Lap robes: 50" x 50" We recommend using yarn that is machine washable and dryable.
