April 5th News and Notes


Neutral Pulpit

We will be hosting a neutral pulpit on April 8th.  A neutral pulpit is when a pastor nominating committee invites a candidate to preach at a neutral location and is one of the final steps in the pastoral search process.   We will welcome a PNC and the Rev. Gloria Yi that morning.


Seeds will resume April 18th.  If you are interested in providing part of the meal (main course, bread, or salad), please see Sue Kennedy or Diane Eades.

LIFT is coming!

We have been selected to be a pilot church for “LIFT” – Living in Faith Together.  This is an intergenerational Sunday School program designed for all ages – children and adult!  We will be testing it for four weeks, starting an April 22nd with a potluck after church!  Plan on joining us!

Christmas in April

Christmas in April is April 28th.  This is a longtime mission project of UPB where we spend one day working on and repairing a home for someone in need.  Please see Herb Sheppard for more information or you can sign up in the Narthex.

Spring Warm Nights

On  Saturday May 5th the Mission and Service committee will be partnering again with the Spring Warm Nights at All Saints Lutheran Church. This is Cinco de Mayo so any Mexican dish is welcomed as well as tacos, as we’ve done in the past. Please sign up in the Narthex for donated food items or if you plan to serve.

The drop off and serving time will be determined soon.

Church in the Park

Church in the Park will be early this year!  On May 6th, we will worship at Allen Pond and have a picnic following worship.
