March 13th News and Notes


Lenten Dinners

We will have our Lenten dinners on Wednesday nights during Lent, beginning tonight.  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.  Sign-ups are in the Narthex for future weeks.  If you did not sign up for tonight, please feel free to come out and join us anyway!


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 this 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

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!


Join us this Sunday after worship for Cross-Gen!  Our interactive Sunday School is aimed at all ages having fun, while studying the Bible and developing inter-generational relationships!

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.

Communication Committee

We are going to be renewing UPB’s Communication Committee. This committee is responsible for spreading the word about our congregation in our community as well as promoting our special events and services. In addition, we handle the website, Facebook page, bulletins, and flyers, brochures,  banners, etc..
