February 2nd News and Notes

Soup-er Bowl Challenge

It is the Falcons vs the Patriots in Super Bowl LI on February 5th! Starting Sunday, our Souper Bowl challenge will resume! There will be a basket on one side of the sanctuary for the New England Patriots and one for the Atlanta Falcons on the other side! Vote for the team that you think will win by putting canned goods in their basket! Pastor Chris will match the canned goods of the winning team! All food goods will go to the Bowie Food Pantry. Remember the food pantry is in need of canned soup, canned fruit, and applesauce!

New Member Class

We will be having a new member class soon.  If you are interested, please let Chris know.

Ash Wednesday

Lent begins Wednesday, March 1st with Ash Wednesday.  We will have our Lenten Intergenerational devotions/dinners on Wednesday during Lent.
