Stamp & Scrap Yard Sale

After two years of wonderful Stamp and Scrap yard sales in the month of June, it was requested that we consider a different date so that you could budget for the stamp/scrap show at the Dulles Expo Center, which is always the last weekend in June. We aim to please!

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our third annual incredible event on Saturday, March 28, 2020!

The event will take place from 9am-1pm at the Nokesville Church of the Brethren.

NCOB – Homecoming

Nokesville Church of the Brethren will be celebrating its 125th Anniversary with a homecoming celebration on the weekend of August 29 & 30, 2020.  Please mark your calendars and plan to join us.

Our theme for this homecoming is based on I Thessalonians 1:2-3, which reads:  “We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Thank you to Debbie Brunner for creating this logo, based on our theme!

The committee has lots of great ideas for that weekend, including a “virtual tour” of the Valley View Church; a picnic in Nokesville park, where a softball game just might break out; the unveiling of a new commemorative wall hanging; new t-shirts; and a worship service full of gratitude for 125 years of being Christ’s body in this place, followed by a carry-in meal.

If you have any suggestions for ways we can enhance the event, or if you have names and addresses of individuals you would like to have invited (or address updates since our celebration in 2016), please contact Nancy Hedges (Chairman) 703-361-7528 or nhedges786@gmail.com.

Updates will appear in Sunday bulletins and the February thru July/August Newsletters.  Please share this news far and wide!  All are welcome.

 

 

Crop Walk to End Hunger

We will once again be partnering with Manassas Church of the Brethren in the CROP Walk. This is a great even for the entire family. We will gather at Nokesville Park on Sunday, October 13 at 2 p.m. to walk.

This is the 50th Anniversary of the Crop Hunger Walk.  In 1969, teens in Bismarck, North Dakota and York County, Pennsylvania decided it was time to do something for families who had to walk miles for food and clean water. So they walked…and, because they took that first step, hunger has forever been changed.

In celebration, we will be spending time in worship on Sunday, October 13, examining what Jesus has to say about caring for the hungry.  And then, we will give “feet” to our worship!

Invite friends and family to support your walk with their donations. You can bring checks or cash with you, or friends can donate online.

Picnic in the Park

Bring a picnic to share, a lawn chair and join us Sunday August 25, following worship, at the Nokesville Park.  Enjoy an afternoon of good food, friends, games and fellowship.  No food will be provided. Tea, lemonade, water and paper products will be provided.  There is a pavilion with picnic tables and benches.  There is a horse shoe pit, volley ball net and children’s play area.  Bathroom facilities are available.  Bring your horseshoes and volley ball.  Corn hole game will also be available.  If you have any questions talk with Polly, Lois, Krista, Beth or Gayle.  Hope to see you there.
