March 1st News and Notes


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!  We are still looking for someone for March 11th.

Lenten Dinners and Devotions

Our Lenten Dinner and Devotions are continuing 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 to share in the meal or let us know you are coming here 

Mission Giving

This Sunday, we will collect our mission giving.  For the month of March, it will be going to support our long time mission partner, “Christmas in April”, which is coming up April 28th.

Easter Baskets

The Mission and Service Committee will be collecting for 15 Easter Baskets for the Bowie Food Pantry. All donations need to be put into the basket by March 25th. Acceptable items are: Individually wrapped candies, pencils, crayons, little books, etc. We will provide the baskets and grass. Children from the Sunday School classes will help assemble.
