February 24th News and Notes

 
 
Lenten Bible Study
 
Every Monday, during Lent, we are meeting at 8:00 for a Bible Study.  It will be based on “Seven Words” by Susan Robb, exploring the seven words from Christ on the Cross.  The book is not necessary for the class (but it is a good read!)
 
Bowie Speaks
 
The city of Bowie will be hosting Bowie Speaks online tonight, February 25th, starting at 7:00.  The program will speak to the role organized religion plays in social justice.  Pastor Chris, as well as representatives from Village Baptist, Faith Works, and Temple Solel will be panelists.  You can register at https://bowie.fyi/bowiespeaks
 
Trivia
 
Mark your calendars!  We will have another trivia night on March 3rd at 7:00.  You can join through
 
Seeds
 
After today, Seeds will be taking a two week break before beginning again on March 3rd where they will explore the week between Palm Sunday and Good Friday.
 
Communion
 
We will celebrate Communion during worship on March 7th.  
 
Easter Bags
 

The Children, Youth and Family Committee will be delivering Easter bags to all our UPB and  SEEDS families the week before Easter.  We are asking for help from the congregation in  providing items for the baskets.  In addition to candy, suggested items include crayons, colored pencils, or markers; bubbles, play dough and sidewalk chalk; Easter stickers and sticker or activity books; word search, Sudoku or crossword puzzle books.  Be creative!!  We need all  donations by Thursday, March 25.  We have 17 families and 36 children and youth, ages 2-17. 

 If you have any questions, talk to Sue. 

 
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.
