November 1st News and Notes


Mission Giving

This Sunday we will collect our November Mission giving.  Our organization for November is Chrysalis House.  Chrysalis House provides substance use and mental health treatment services for women 18 years of age and older, while allowing their children to live onsite during their mother’s program of recovery.  The mission of Chrysalis House Inc. is to transform the lives of women and children by providing comprehensive recovery programs and services that support the development of their inherent strengths, talents, and potential. 

Daylight Savings

Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour this Saturday night for Daylight Savings time!

Love, Factually

We are taking a group to the Kennedy Center on Thursday, December 6th at 8:00 to see Love, Factually.  Love, Factually is a holiday satire from the twisted minds at The Second City, which gets to the truth of December life, love, and romance. Whether you love or hate the movie Love, Actually, you’re going to fall in love with this mashup of parody, original comedy, music, improv, and audience participation.

Tickets are 56.00 including all fees.  If you are interested in attending this show, please email by Sunday, November 4th.

Be warned, this is probably not “PG” rated!


Our next CrossGen will be this Sunday, November 18th.  Join us after worship for our intergenerational Sunday School!  Please plan on bringing some finger food to share!

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.

Warm Nights

UPB will be providing dinner Thursday November 15th for the Warm Nights program held at All Saints. We have decided on Chili Night. Mary Jo will put a sign up out in the Narthex. They also always need extra hands with serving the families.

Thanksgiving Baskets

The Mission and Service Committee will begin collecting the following items to pack up five Thanksgiving Baskets for the Bowie Food Pantry: Cranberry sause, gravy, stuffing, canned corn, yams, sweet potatoes and green beans, boxed mashed potatoes, corn muffin mix. Please place these items in the container labeled “THANKSVING BASKETS”. The baskets will be delivered on November 16th in the am.
