April 20th News and Notes


We will confirm our confirmation class this Sunday, April 23rd.  We will celebrate them with an extended Chat & Chew that day.  Please bring a finger food or desert to share.

Art & Music Camp

There will be a meeting after Sunday School, this Sunday, April 23rd for those interested in helping out with Art & Music camp.


Seeds begins back Wednesday, April 26th.  There is a sign up sheet in the Narthex to help with food!

Christmas in April

Christmas in April will be April 29th.  We participate in this mission project to help people in need in Prince George’s county by working on lower income housing.  We are in need of workers of all skill levels.  If you are interested, please sign up in the Narthex or email Herb Sheppard.

SMA Walk

The SMA walk will be June 10th!  Mark your calendars and start raising money!

Mars Hill

It is time to start thinking about the Mars Hill mission trip.  It will be from July 9th-15th.  A group goes down to Madison County in North Carolina and stays at Mars Hill Campus.  Children 11 and under stay on campus for a vacation bible school like program.  12 and older can either help out with the children’s program or work on low income housing.  This mission trip is in cooperation with Christ Memorial Presbyterian of Columbia, MD and Shadyside Presbyterian of Pittsburgh, PA.  If interested or if you have any questions, please see Chris.

Pulpit Supply

Chris will be out of the office from April 24th-May 8th.  Rev. Dottie LaPenta will be filling the pulpit on April 30th and May 7th.
