OUR CHURCH FAMILY
ALTHOUGH WE HAVE
MANY INTERESTS AND HOBBIES, GOD IS FOREMOST IN OUR LIVES. WALT JOINED CONDIT
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN CONDIT, OHIO AS A TEENAGER AND JEAN WAS BAPTIZED AS A
METHODIST. OUR CHURCH FAMILY IS VERY DEAR TO US. WE HAVE BEEN MEMBERS OF FIRST
UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN DALE CITY, VA FOR nearly 30 YEARS; although Walt has recently transferred to Covenant Presbyterian Church..
First United Presbyterian Church,
Dale City, VA
COVENANT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH; WOODBRIDGE, VA.
The Churches are a part of The Presbyterian Church, USA (PCUSA).
LIKE MANY, WE HAVE
SUFFERED PERSONAL TRAGEDY AND CONTINUE TO BE TESTED BY SATAN HIMSELF, WE KNOW
THAT GOD WILL PREVAIL. A FAVORITE SCRIPTURE IS MATTHEW CHAPTER 7 VERSE 7.
THE THREE LETTERS THAT BEGIN EACH SENTENCE AND TOGETHER, FORM THE WORD
"ASK". REMEMBERING THEM, MAKES IT VERY EASY TO REMEMBER THIS PASSAGE
OF THE BIBLE. IT ALSO REMINDS US THAT WE NEED ONLY TO ASK, SEEK OR SEARCH AND
KNOCK AND GOD WILL OPEN THE DOOR FOR US.
PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!
JEAN AND I HAVE BOTH BEEN ON EMMAUS WEEKENDS (NATIONAL CAPITAL AREA) NCA EMMAUS for local information or National for national information.
- WALT WALKED ON E59 AND HAS TEAMED ON MEN'S WEEKENDS. JEAN WALKED ON E67. WALT
SANG IN THE CHURCH CHOIR AND WITH THE CHURCH HALLELUJAH CHORUS (MADRIGALS). HE
IS AN ELDER AND HAS SERVED ON PRESBYTERY AND SYNOD COMMITTEES. HE NOW SINGS WITH THE COVENANT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CHOIR. JEAN IS A DEACON
AND A STEPHENS MINISTER. JEAN IS ALSO THE MEALS COORDINATOR FOR THE COOPERATIVE
COUNCIL OF MINISTRIES FOOD PROGRAM IN SUPPORT OF THE WOODBRIDGE HOMELESS
PREVENTION CENTER. BE SURE TO VISIT GOD's CHURCH WHEREVER YOU ARE; BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, ATTEND THE CHURCH OF YOUR CHOICE. FEEL
FREE TO BROWSE THE WEBS for both church's at the URL addresses below. You MIGHT WANT TO TAKE A WALK IN THE WOODS ON THE 1/2 MILE PRAYER TRAIL IN THE WOODS BUILT BY THE BOY SCOUTS AT COVENANT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. WHATEVER YOUR SPIRITIUAL NEEDS, EACH CHURCH IS THERE TO HELP YOU. ALTHOUGH WE TAKE SERIOUSLY THE WORK OF THE LORD, WE DO HAVE A SENSE OF
HUMOR. VISITING A TALENT NIGHT AND/OR POTLUCK DINNER IS ALWAYS A TREAT AND FULL OF SURPRISES. A FEW YEARS AGO, SEVERAL OF THE FUPCDC ELDERS AND THE FUPCDC FOUNDING
PASTOR PRESENTED THEIR VERSION OF THE RHYTHMIC CHOIR (RHYTHM 99999 OR SOMETHING
LIKE THAT. THE FOLLOWING PICTURE IS JUST AN EXAMPLE.
Names witheld to protect the innocent. Any resemblance to those living or dead
is purely coincidental.
I HOPE YOU
ENJOY OUR HUMOR AND THAT IT WILL HELP THOSE OF YOU WHO ATTEND OR ATTENDED FUPCDC,TO RECALL SOME OF YOUR MEMORIES.
REMEMBER THAT WITH GOD
ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
FOR IT IS "THE
MASTER'S TOUCH." THAT HAS HELPED IN THE CREATION AND MOLDING OF YOU
AND I, (LIKE THE POTTER'S CLAY). IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE CALL
US AT 703 494-2556 OR THE CHURCH OFFICE.
Our friends are our family and very special to us. this verse by Henri
Nouwen says it all!
When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to
us, we often find it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or
cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm
and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair
and confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who
can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality
of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
