Church & Society Needs You!
Our Church & Society Committee does a lot of work for those in need in the Metro DC area and beyond. There are many different ministry areas within the committee, such as Martha’s Table, Christ House, the Children’s Center of Falls Church, and our various monthly collection drives. Each of these areas has a coordinator who reports to the committee’s chairperson. The committee’s chairperson acts as an administrator for the committee by collecting all of the information for the various projects and reporting them to the church through The Spire and Church Council meetings.
If you might be interested in being a part of this committee, please speak with Pastor Eileen to find the area that best suits you and your gifts. Who knows, you may be the right person to chair this committee!
Tasks of Church & Society Chairperson:
- Gather information from coordinators of committee’s ministries
- Write monthly article for The Spire
- Attend monthly Church Council meeting
Crafts for a Cause
The Busy Season has begun for Crafts for a Cause, as we face down more than 50 yards of red and white flannel, piles of fluffy fleece and a jumbo box of stuffing. You can join in the chaos at our work sessions on Mon, Oct. 10, and Mon, Oct. 24, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. There will also be a bonus session during the church wide Good Works Day on Oct. 22.
At all these sessions, we will be working on Christmas stockings for newborns, comfort pillows for chemo patients, dolls and bears for children, and a variety of special projects for the Holiday Bazaar, our annual fund-raiser, which starts Sun., Nov. 20.
We are also looking for volunteers who can knit or crochet to help us make Santa caps for newborns at Fair Oaks Hospital. It’s an easy pattern; we’ll provide the yarn. Contact Molly Sprouse, or call 703-356-4896, if you can help.
