Ageless Group

Providing information, fellowship and mutual support, this group aims to address the wide-ranging interests of people aged 50 or better. We offer life-planning information to the adult children of aging parents. The group meets periodically on Saturday mornings for presentations and conversation. Also, the Ageless Group holds a large collection of reference documents, available online in our own repository covering topics as diverse as accommodation options, financial planning, spirituality, health, medical and end-of-life care, and estate planning.

 

For more information, please contact Michael Broddle.

Book Groups

St. Anne's is a community of readers, so we have two book groups! The Monday Book Discussion group meets approximately once a month during the day to talk about a book chosen by the group. The Third Tuesday Book Club meets once a month during the evening to discuss a book chosen by the group. Check the Sunday bulletin announcements and e-newsletter for a brief introduction to the books for both groups. 

For more information about the Monday Book Club, please contact the Kathy Boileau. For more information about the Third Tuesday Book Club, please contact Katie Ward.

Java Junction

Java Junction is the ministry team which coordinates​ coffee hours and evening receptions.  The coffee hours after morning worship services, and wine and cheese reception after the 5:00 p.m. service, are times of gathering, sharing, meeting new people and catching up on the week.  Being part of Java Junction is a simple way to serve and contribute to our St. Anne's family.  

For more information, please contact the Church Office.

Men's Fellowship

St. Anne's​ Men's Fellowship, fondly known as the Bagel Boys, is a camaraderie of men of all ages sharing great stories and better bagel breakfasts in friendship and mutual support. Challenging topics are discussed by a diverse array of nationally recognized experts and an exceptional cadre of speakers.  The group gathers every second and fourth Saturday morning each month during the program year, September through June.

For more information, please contact Richard Geissler.

Parish Camping Trip

Twice a year​, in the spring and fall, St. Anne's enjoys a weekend outdoors in a quiet spot on the banks of the Shenandoah River's North Fork, about 10 miles south of Harpers Ferry, WV.  If you enjoy pitching a tent, taking a hike, kayaking or tubing on the river, campfire fellowship, and Eucharist at the river, then this adventure has your name on it. 

For more information, please contact Mother Laura.

Shrine Mont Parish Retreat

Every October​ St. Anne's heads to Shrine Mont, a retreat center of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia in the mountains of Orkney Springs, Virginia.  Shrine Mont provides people of all ages with an abundance of beautiful places to explore, activities to enjoy, and people to get to know better.  Take a hike up the mountain or relax in a rocking chair on the porch.  Enjoy a hayride or a relaxed conversation by a fire.  Experience a weekend of fellowship and spiritual renewal with your church family.

For more information, please contact Mother Laura.

Summer Grill Nights

Beginning Wednesdays in June, and continuing through August, join us every Wednesday at 6:30pm in the St. Anne’s parking lot. Bring something to grill for yourself and something (side dish? dessert? Strange-flavor chip you want to try but don’t want to commit to the whole bag yourself?) to share and come ready to relax and unwind as we kick off the Wednesday night grilling.  Grill Night is a great midweek, casual gathering to get to know fellow members of our community in a very informal setting. Kids run around the playground as grownups converse and share an evening outdoors. 

For more information, please contact Grill Facilitator Mike Ball.

Thirst & Theology

At Thirst & Theology, folks gather for informal and honest conversation about life and faith. On the third Wednesday of each month from September through May, this event is held at Café Montmartre (1625 Washington Plaza N, Reston, VA) with a social hour beginning at 6:00 p.m. and a discussion beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Using current events and issues, we explore their relevance to our life of faith and listen and search for ways we might be called to respond or engage. Bring your thoughts and questions and friends!

No sign-up necessary. To learn more, please contact Mother Laura.
