December 14th News and Notes

Children’s Christmas Program

The children of UPB have been hard at work preparing this year’s Christmas program.  Come and support them as they tell the Christmas story during worship on December 15th.

Christmas Open House

Pastor Chris, Heather, and Hannah would like to invite you to their Christmas Open House, this Sunday between 3 and 6.  Come celebrate Christmas with good food and good fellowship.  Drop in or stay as long as you like!  They live at 12500 Rockledge in Bowie.

Movie Night

The CYF committee will be hosting a movie night at UPB on Friday, December 20th.  We will have hot dogs and popcorn and watch the movie, Klaus.  We will meet at 6:00 and ask all children be picked up by 8:15.  We welcome and adult helpers who are interested!

Christmas Eve

Join us as we worship Christ, the newborn King, on Christmas Eve at 6:00!

Reading the Bible in 2020

Last week, pastor Chris invited the congregation to join him in reading through the Bible in 2020 using the NIV One Year Congregational Bible.  It is available through Amazon here.  If you would like to receive reflection questions the end of most weeks, please email
