March 6th News and Notes


Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on today.  Join us for our Ash Wednesday service tonight at 7:00.

Daylight Savings

Spring Forward! Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 10. Although most
cellphone and digital devices will automatically adjust, don’t forget to move your battery operated clocks ahead by one hour before retiring for bed Saturday evening.


We are creating a M.O.M.s (mothers of minors!) group.  This is for anyone with children, newborn through high school to get together and share fellowship with one another.  The first get together will be Friday, March 15th at On the Border at 6:00.  They will be meeting for margaritas (or other beverages) and dinner.  If you plan on attending or would like to be kept up to date on future events, please email

Lenten Dinners

We will have our Lenten dinners on Wednesday nights during Lent, beginning March 13th.  The meal theme for March 13th will be corned beef and cabbage or other inspired meals.  We will have dinner at 6:00 and follow it with an inter-generational, interactive activity.

Mission Giving

We are moving our mission giving from the first Sunday of the month, to the second Sunday of the month.  We will take it up this Sunday and it will be going to the First Presbyterian Church of Wetumpka, Alabama which was destroyed by a tornado on January 19th by a tornado.  For more information, click here.

Warm Nights

UPB will be participating in the Warm Nights Program at Village Baptist Church on March 16, 2019. A sign up sheet available in the Narthex.  Our meal selection will be: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and desserts.  We are especially in need of mashed potatoes and dessert!

Easter Baskets

The Mission and Service committee will be collecting Easter items for 15 Baskets. Please place your purchases in the Narthex by April 8th. They’ll be delivered to the Bowie Food Pantry on Monday the 9th.
