February 8th News and Notes

Mission Giving

Due to the weather last week, we postponed our Mission Giving to this Sunday.  This month, our mission partner is the United Campus Ministry from the University of Maryland.  Remember, if you have a non-profit or ministry you would like to invite, please let Chris or one of the board members know!

Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on Wednesday, February 14th with our Ash Wednesday service at 7:00.  Plan on joining us!

CYF Committee

The Children, Youth, and Family Committee are meeting this Sunday, February 11th at 5:00 at Sue Kennedy’s house.

Time for Testimony

Once again, during Lent, we are inviting the congregation to share stories of their faith.  This year, we are asking people to share their favorite (or a favorite, if you have more than one) hymn and why it is meaningful to you.  Afterwards, we will sing the hymn!  Please let Chris know if you are interested or sign up here.

Lenten Dinners and Devotions

Our Lenten Dinner and Devotions will begin on Wednesday, February 21st and continue every Wednesday until Holy Week.  We will begin dinner at 6:00 and have an inter-generational devotional activity afterwards.  The them will be exploring Lent through African American Spirituals.  You can sign up here 

Soup-er Bowl Sunday

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Soup-er Bowl giving!  We had 68 cans given for the Eagles and 38 cans given for the Patriots.  With the match, we raised 174 cans for the Bowie Food Pantry!
