"Pig-nic" BBQ draws multitudes

This year's "Pig-nic" barbecue event on Saturday, October 18 was a big success, both in terms of the number of people who participated, and in terms of the money that was raised. Matthew Poteat, Randy Hamblet, and Colin Hester prepared roast pig, chicken, and Brunswick stew, while Steven Cox provided various regional barbecue sauces, and many other parishioners brought various pot luck dishes to share. Many, many helping hands made this event possible. Proceeds from this event will go to support St. Marc's School in Cerca-la-Source, Haiti, as part of Emmanuel's ongoing efforts with the Virginia Haiti Collaborative.

Thanks to Steven Cox for soliciting from parish members words that they thought best described our church congregation, and then compiling all of them into a "word cloud." Click on the image to see a full-size version. If that doesn't work, click here instead
