April 15th News and Notes


Worship Opportunities

Until we are able to worship together, we will worship through Zoom on Sunday mornings at 10:00, 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.  A video of Sunday worship will be sent out shortly after it is completed.

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 April 29th from 10-11 to collect any donations and deliver them.

Stay at Home Order

Maryland, DC, and Virginia have issued stay at home orders enforcable by fines and/or jail time.  If you need to be out on essential business, please let Chris know and he can send you a letter to protect you while out.

Prayer Services

We will continue with prayer services on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 and Thursday afternoons at 1:00.  This is a brief time of scripure, devotion, prayer, and a little catching up!  Services last approximately fifteen minutes and we would love to have you join us at https://zoom.us/j/159967508


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.


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.

Christmas in April

Christmas in April has been cancelled for this year due to the stay at home order.
