May 16th News and Notes


Mission Giving

We raised $330 for Cure SMA this past Sunday.

SMA Walk-N-Roll

The SMA Walk-N-Roll will be Saturday, June 9th.  We are taking orders for this years T-shirt until May 21st.  They will be $15.00 and if there are any proceeds, it will go towards cure SMA.  You can order in the Narthex or online here.

Heroes of Faith

During the summer, we will be looking at some of the heroes from the Bible.  At the same time, we are inviting you to share with the congregation who has been a hero in the formation of your faith.  It could be someone you know like a Sunday School teacher, friend, or family member or it could be a public figure like Mr. Rogers or Billy Graham.

Mars Hill Mission Trip

Our Mars Hill mission trip will be July 8th-14th.  If you are considering going, please let Chris know (you do not need to commit yet)

Congregational Survey

The committee chairs have put together a survey to gauge interest in various areas.  We ask that everyone fill this out either electronically (available here ) or the paper form (located in the Narthex starting Sunday).  These will be available until May 27th.



Bowiefest is June 2nd.  We are looking for people who are willing to help share who we are to the community!  Please see the sign up sheet in the Narthex.


On June 16, from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M., we will co-host a Stitch-in with the Prayer Shawl Ministry of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church to knit and crochet chemo caps for a local chemotherapy clinic in Lanham.  We hope to make at least 25 hats.  Yarn, patterns and light refreshments will be provided.  The Stitch-in will take place in the Historic Rectory of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 13106 Annapolis Rd, Bowie, MD 20720.  Please bring size 7 or 8 straight or circular knitting needles and/or a size H or J crochet hook.

Donations to defray the cost of the yarn would be greatly appreciated; yarn to make one hat costs about $3.00.  If you have any questions, please contact  Joey Drown:  301-249-1454,
