It turned out that the old hip implants (10 years ago!) had to be redone and so I have to do some rehab for a few weeks. I miss you all and am grateful for your prayers. I have limited computer access in rehab, but feel free to email. Advent's amazing leadership is functioning well, but if you see an area where you can help, please reach out.
Pastoral Care. While Pastor Anna is recovering, the Rev. Vincent Guss is available to provide pastoral care. Please email the Advent office for Rev. Guss’ direct contact information.
Get ready for Game Day!
We are continuing an Advent tradition of partnering with Souper Bowl of Caring to collect food or donations on football’s biggest day - Super Bowl Sunday. But we need volunteers to man the collection table on Saturdays (January 30 and February 6). If you or your family would like to help for a few hours, please email the office.
Electronic Giving Statements an option
Get your 2020 Statement of Giving electronically instead of waiting for the mail. Financial Secretary David Falksen is offering everyone this option once statements are ready at the end of January. Email David or the church office for more information. In addition to getting your report earlier, this will reduce postage costs for Advent.
Arlington & Alexandria begin next vaccination phase
Following Governor Northam’s directive to increase flexibility and speed up vaccine distribution in Virginia, Arlington County and Alexandria began vaccinations this week for eligible groups defined in Phase 1b, including frontline essential workers and people aged 75 and older.
Virginia Hospital Center is partnering with Arlington County to operate an "appointment only" vaccination clinic at Walter Reed Community Center for Arlington residents over the age of 75. Schedule appointments at the VHC website.
Alexandria organizations and individuals who qualify for Phase 1a or 1b should fill out this brief form to pre-register. Anyone experiencing difficulty with the form may call the Alexandria COVID-19 Hotline at 703-746-4988, weekdays from 9 am to 6 pm.
Phase 1c Pre-Registration
Residents eligible for vaccination as part of Phase 1ccan pre-register in both Arlington and Alexandria but will not be able to make a vaccination appointment until the next phase is entered. Members of your household may become eligible at different times, depending on their employment location, occupation, age, and health condition. Vaccination phases may vary by jurisdiction but once pre-registered, you will be notified to make an appointment.
It will take several weeks to months to vaccinate all Virginians who fall into Phase 1b. The ability to schedule appointments will depend on the supply of vaccine available. Click on your city below for more information.
