POA WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS - Oct 2 - 8

POA Family Month “Home Team” Begins Tomorrow!
October has long been a favorite time of the year at POA.  The weather gets cooler, the food seems tastier, but best of all - it’s POA Family Month!!
All month we’ll celebrate our incredible POA family.  We’ll celebrate you.  We’ll celebrate us!

Make plans now to be a part of POA Family Weekend October 28-30 at the LA District Campgrounds. This is the weekend we celebrate the blessings of family, friends, fun, food, and fellowship.  Be watching for a schedule of events coming soon.

POA is an amazing church family!  We worship together.  We fellowship together.  We share life together.  We celebrate life together.  
Everyone plays an important role in making POA a wonderful church to not only attend, but to be involved in.  Every ministry.  Every department. Everyone. We make quite a team! 
This year our theme for POA Family Month is “HOME TEAM”

It’s going to be a wonderful POA FAMILY MONTH! 
We’re thankful you’re a part of our POA HOME TEAM!
Sunday Morning at POA! - Sunday School at 9:00Am - Morning Worship at 10:00AM
Sundays at POA are definitely the highlight of our POA week! Join us for Sunday School at 9:00AM and Morning Worship Service at 10:00AM.

Sunday School at 9:00AM provides a place of Bible learning for everyone of all ages. Somewhere on our POA campus there is a Sunday School class taking place that is just for you!

Sunday Morning Worship Service kicks off at 10:00AM, and is a wonderful time of worship and the Word with our POA family.

If you’re unable to attend, service will be available live on our POA App, Facebook, YouTube, and at poa.church.
Invest 2817
Sunday, October 2nd, is the day we designate our offering for INVEST 2817.

Invest 2817 provides funding for the expansion, repair, maintenance, and upgrading of our POA facilities and campus.
If you have made Invest 2817 pledges, Sunday is the day to turn in your pledges.
First Wednesday Communion & Prayer – October 5th
Wednesday, October 5th, will be First Wednesday Communion.  It will be available in the adult prayer room from 6:00AM – 6:45PM.

From 8:30AM-9:00AM, join us for First Wednesday Prayer in the adult prayer room.
POA WEDNESDAY
POA WEDNESDAY is an exciting night for the entire family!

All adult ministries (60Plus, Kingdom Life, and Young Marrieds Class) will gather in the main sanctuary for a time of worship and the Word.

Refuge Youth Ministries, POA Kids, and Wonderland will continue to meet in their locations on Wednesdays.

There’ll be something for ALL ages taking place all across our POA campus. The evening kicks off at 7:00PM
M25 – Feeding the Homeless
It’s that time again, as we go to the streets with the M25 mission to reach out to the less fortunate.

Tomorrow, October 8th, we will be grilling hamburgers and hotdogs under the I-49 overpass on Murray St near downtown Alexandria.

We are looking for volunteers to help serve food and minister to those in need.

If you’d like more info, see Davin Ainsworth or Dwane Bergeron, or email dwane@suddenlink.net
POA Foot Washing Service
On Sunday, October 9th, at 6:00PM, we will gather for POA Foot Washing Service.  This is a service that allows us as His followers to emulate Him (John 13) by serving one another in lowliness of heart and mind, seeking to build one another up in humility and love.

Women will gather in the G.A. Mangun Center, and men will gather in the Family Life Center.

We hope you’ll join our POA family for this special time together.
Your Help is Needed in Wonderland ChildCare
We are looking for volunteers to help with POA WONDERLAND CHILDCARE.

WONDERLAND allows POA family and guests to enjoy Sunday Morning Worship Service and POA Wednesday while knowing that their child is having a great time, being taken care of, and in the safe & capable hands of great volunteers in WONDERLAND.

WONDERLAND is a vital ministry of POA and is in need of some great people to be part of the WONDERLAND team! If interested, stop by the WONDERLAND check-in office Sundays or Wednesdays.
