Daylight Savings

Do not forget to “fall back” this Saturday night for Daylight Savings!


We will meet for happy hour/trivia on November 18th at 7:00.  We have a great time in October and hope you will join us.

Celebration Sunday

Celebration Sunday will be Sunday, November 15th.  Join us as we pledge ourselves to the ministry and mission of UPB for 2021.

Food Pantry
The Mission and Service Committee will be collecting only gift cards this Thanksgiving and Christmas for the Bowie Food Pantry. They have decided not to collect any additional food or presents due to limited space as a result of restrictions from the pandemic.
Gift cards for THANKSGIVING should be for Grocery stores and for CHRISTMAS gift cards should be for stores that sell toys.
The Committe will be at the church on Wednesday November 18th from 10 to 11 and Wedneday December 16th from 10 to 11.
Feel free to include regular food donations on these two dates as well.


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.
