May 12th News and Notes

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap is tonight 7:00 at DuClaw.  We will be discussing prayer.

Church Outing

On May 15th, following Sunday School, we will be going out for lunch and bowling at Crofton Bowling Center from 12ish – 2.   The church will pay for the bowling and shoes and you can buy lunch there.  This is an event for all ages, so plan to join us!


We will be celebrating Pentecost this Sunday.  Wear red if you have it!


Bowiefest is coming up June 4th.  Sign-up sheets for helping out will be available this Sunday.

SMA T-Shirts

You can order an UPB vs SMA t-shirt for the rock n roll for $15.00 with the proceeds going towards finding a cure for SMA.  Please order one here or through the sign-up sheet in the Narthex.

SMA Walk

Our congregation will be hosting a walk n roll to raise money for SMA on Saturday June 11th.  The walk will be one mile at 10:30 and we will have a celebration afterwards.  This is an opportunity to both commit to hands on mission and raise our viability in the neighborhood, so let’s all get involved so we can put an end to SMA!

Mars Hill

The Mars Hill mission trip will be July 10th-16th this year.  Please let Chris know if you are interested in going.

 Singing for Pearl

Let’s put a song in Pearl’s heart on Sun., May 22, at 11:30 a.m. Adults and kids are invited to join the choir when we go to Pearl Donovan’s home to sing several hymns for her.

Pearl was a faithful worshiper with us and an enthusiastic teacher of children in our church before her massive stroke. One of her favorites is, “This Little Light of Mine.”  So kids, let your lights shine and help us make music for Pearl.  Meet in the narthex at 11:15 a.m., and we’ll car pool (if you wish) to her home at 15807 Pinecroft Lane.  See Shirley Bickel for more details.
