March 19th News and Notes

It is amazing how much things can change in a week!  I am amazed how, even in seperation, we have been able to come together as a community!  Here are some ministry opportunites/help if you need it!

Worship Opportunities

In person worship is canceled through April 5th.  We will once again, reevaluate after that.  Until then, we will have short prayer services Tuesday evenings at 7:30 and Thursday afternoons at 1:00 through Zoom.  You can sign in with this link – https://zoom.us/j/159967508 or call  in at 1-301-715-8592, using meeting ID 159 967 508. When it prompts you for a user id, simply hit the pound sign.  We will try worshiping by Zoom this Sunday at 10:00 using the same link.  A video of Sunday worship will be posted shortly after it is completed.

Giving

Several people have asked how they can continue to make their tithes and offerings while we are not meeting in person.  There are several ways.  You can mail a check to the church.  You can give online through paypal https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=KJTC62AUPNWCE&source=url   You can also set up a payment through your banks online bill pay feature.  Paypal charges the church approximately 3%, so please consider either consider giving through one of the other two ways or adding 3% to your offering to offset the fee.

Cure for isolation

Many of our members may feel isolated.  We have had someone step up and offer to try and teach zoom, google hangouts, facetime or other tech programs to better reach out to friends and family.  If you would like help with that, please email me at ckdeacon@yahoo.com and I will set up a time.

Assistance

If any of our members who are “at risk” do not feel safe running errands, we have put together a team to help you out.  Please email me at ckdeacon@yahoo.com and I will put you in touch with them.

Food Pantry

Last week, the Bowie Food Pantry was broken into.  With the economic uncertainty facing our nation right now, there is a bigger need for help then usual.  If you would like to contribute to the Bowie Food Pantry, Janice Sheppard will be at the church on March 30th from 10-11 to collect any donations and deliver them.
