June 5th News and Notes



SMA Walk-N-Roll

The SMA Walk-N-Roll will be this Saturday, June 9th.  Set-up begins at 9:00.  Come out and join us.  If you can’t join us, but still want to donate, you can do it here.

Christian Education Appreciation

This Sunday, we will be recognizing those involved in Christian Education.  We will have a special Chat & Chew following worship.  Please bring a finger food or dessert to share!

Mission Giving

We collected $860 to support our Mars Hill mission team last Sunday.  Thank you!

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 by June 15th.


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,  tmdrown@verizon.net
