A St. Peter’s Field Trip! On Monday, February 9th, we will take a field trip to the National Museum of Women in the Arts to see the exhibit, “Picturing Mary.” This exhibit of more than sixty works of images of the Virgin Mary, focuses on different aspects of Mary’s identity and her relationship to our Christian faith. Susan Tilt, professional artist, will lead our group through the exhibit. This is a wonderful opportunity not to be missed. We will tour the exhibit and eat lunch either in the museum café or in a local restaurant. Admission to the museum is $10 for those under 65, $8 for students and those over 65. Youth 18 and under are free. Once we know how many plan to go, we will determine our best means of transportation to the museum. Please let Catherine know (540) 809-7489 or by email if you are interested in this fantastic/once in a lifetime opportunity.

Today’s annual congregational meeting will take place within the context of the service. Some printed reports will be available, and you can also find the reports online at Questions are welcome during the meeting, and we will be electing two new Vestry members.

Second Sunday after the Epiphany 

January 18, 2015 11am  

Jesus calls Philip and Nathanael

“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth." Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.’"- John 1:43-46
