We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, and we respect and honor with gratitude the land itself, the legacy of the ancestors, and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

ECW Planning Meeting, April 9, 2024

B.J. Anderson, Laura Carey, Jen Devitt, Elizabeth Heimbach, Andrea Pogue, and Jan Devitt met at Horne’s today (April 9). At the meeting Elizabeth announced that Andrea has agreed to be the Chair of the St. Peter’s ECW! What great news! Here are the things we discussed:

Upcoming events

  • The reception before the concert, April 19: Linda Upshaw will be in touch with everyone to organize the food and drink for the reception.
  • The reception for the bishop, May 19: we hope that Andrea will be able to contact a reggae band. We also hope that everyone will bring dishes as they usually do for Sunday Social Hour. Andrea will prepare ham and cabbage, Elizabeth will bring a sheet cake, and fruit, Laura will make a donation.
  • Fund raising ideas

  • Bingo
  • Flocking: Jan explained that setting up flocks of flamingos on neighbors’ yards can be a fundraiser when the neighbors can pay not to be flocked or to have the flocks removed.
  • Andrea is planning a small yard sale on May 4 in Port Royal when Historic Port Royal is celebrating 100 years of the Port Royal school.
  • Shred-it event, June 12
  • Thanksgiving sit-down as well as grab-and-go dinner, November 13
