December 5th News and Notes

Stockings for Seniors

The Mission and Service committee has decided to provide stockings for Seniors, sponsored by the Bowie food pantry.
Your donations can be from a family or completed individually. Simply buy one stocking and fill it with your choice of items, ie, candy, toiletries, Pen and pad, word searches, etc.
Please leave them in the Narthex. They’ll be delivered on Wednesday December 19th.

On December 9th, we will have a Christmas activity for all ages!  We will meet at 5:00 and build gingerbread houses.  The cost will be $5.00 per house kit, as well as a bag of candy to share for decorating.  Pizza will be provided.  Sign up is required by December 6th!  You can sign up here or in the Narthex at church.

Congregational Meeting

We will have a brief congregational meeting after worship on December 9th to elect members of the board and of the nominating committee for the coming year.
