October 4th News and Notes

Mars Hill fundraiser

We will be hosting a fundraiser for next year’s Mars Hill mission trip at Texas Roadhouse on October 9th.  If you bring in a flyer (which will be sent out as soon as we get them), UPB will receive 10% of the proceeds from your meal.  We will have a raffle there to win four tickets to see the Washington Redskins vs the Carolina Panthers on October 14th! It is also kid’s night, so there will be face painting and balloon twisting.  Tell a friend and come out and eat for a great cause! 

Celebration Sunday

Celebration Sunday will be October 14th.  On this day, we will bring our pledges for 2019 forward in the church in celebration of all that we have been blessed with!  What is a celebration without ICE CREAM!  Join us after worship on Celebration Sunday for an ice cream social!

Love Does

Our book study on the book “Love Does” by Bob Goff meets Monday nights at 7:00 this fall until October 15th.  You do not have to have read the book and each session is independent, so if you miss a class you will not be lost the next week.  Join us next Monday!


Seeds started back earlier this month.  We had 15 children come and learn about Noah and the rainbow!  If you would like to help provide the meal for Seeds, please sign up here! 

Navy Vs Tulsa

On Saturday, Nov 17th, we will have a group go to the Navy/Tulsa game in Annapolis.  The game starts at 3:30 and tickets are $35.00.  You can sign up in the Narthax or signing up here.

Sermons Online

Did you know that our sermons are posted on our website, usually a week after worship?  You can find them here.

Buddy Program

The CYF committee is looking to build relationships between the children and the adults of our church.  They are exploring putting together a “buddy” program.  We sent an email out a couple of weeks ago, if you need a copy of it, please let Chris Deacon or Sue Kennedy know.


Our next CrossGen will be Sunday, October 21st.  Join us after worship for our intergenerational Sunday School!  Please plan on bringing some finger food to share!

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is October 20th from 4:00-6:00.  We invite the congregation to bring their car out, decorate if they choose, and pass out candy to the children from the community.  If you don’t want to hand out candy, we can use help in other areas!  Come out, support the community, give out some candy and have some fun!!  The more people we have, the bigger a success it will be.
