Congregational Meeting

A special meeting of the congregation of Wycliffe Presbyterian Church has been duly called, to be held Sept 22nd, immediately following worship, for the purpose of electing the candidates for elder class of 2022.
Jesus came to them and said: I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth! Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you. I will be with you always, even until the end of the world.

To Honor Our Veterans

Veterans Day this year and every year is November 11th. This year here at Wycliffe, we would like to honor our veterans with a bulletin insert on Sunday, November 10th that will list our veterans and tell us a little bit about their service. If you or a family member are a veteran please use the insert that will be in Sunday's bulletin and turn it in to the office, with the offering or email at before October 27th to have your veteran listed in our weekly announcements.

Please include:
  • Veteran’s Name
  • Branch of service
  • Dates of service
  • Specialty
  • A short sentence about the time in uniform
Blessing of the Animals

Bring your pets to this special afternoon service at 4 pm on October 6th. Donations of animal toys, food or other pet-friendly items are welcome and will be taken to an animal shelter. VB Dog Obedience School will demonstrate training for dogs in a variety of situations including protecting, bomb sniffing & military training. Seeing is believing! Rain date: Oct 13

Contact Bess Mann 496-2833

(All animals must be on a leash or in a secure carrier.) 
Wycliffe Golf Outing

Saturday, October 5th at Broad Bay Country Club
We anticipate that our tee times will commence about 1:00 (more to follow on that). We would love to have not only men’s groups, but would love to have women players and youth players. Whole families can play as a team or the family members can be spread out among several teams. The format is Captain’s Choice Best Ball, so you don’t have to be good to play – and most of us are not. There will be a pot-luck dinner after the golf for the players, families, and golf fans. More details will follow, but save the date. If we can count on you to play, please notify Dave Carney 270-9979 or
Apple Tree Drive is Complete

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our Apple Tree this year. Our goals were a little more modest this year than in the past, but we met them and provided all the items requested by the VB Public Schools staff.

Stock Wycliffe’s
Food Closet

Wow! Wycliffians really came through for the initial stocking of the food closet. We will notify the school social workers that the food closet is open.

A well-stocked closet provides needed food to Va. Beach school children and families this year. We need your help with a few more items.

Please choose 4 or 5 items from the list below and bring them to church. Check the expiration date on all foods & be sure they have at least a year before they expire.

We also need monetary donations for grocery gift cards. Please put “Food Closet” in the memo line on your check. Thanks again for all you do.~ CS&M Committee
