February 16th News and Notes


In Person Worship

We will return to in-person worship this Sunday, February 20th. The previous Covid protocols will be in place. Masks will be required, we will limit our singing to three hymns, we will not pass the peace, and social distancing is recommended. 
One change is that  Pastor Chris will take a rapid Covid test within 24 hours of each service. If it is negative, he will not wear a mask or face shield while speaking from the pulpit. He will put on a mask while singing. If it is positive, worship will transition to virtual for that Sunday only. If you see him wearing a face shield, it does not mean that he tested positive, but that he did not have a test available to take.
We will still livestream through our YouTube channel
CYF Committee

The Children, Youth, and Family Committee will meet tonight at 7:30 via Zoom.  Please contact Sue Kennedy, if you would like to participate!

Easter Baskets
The Mission and Service Committee will be taking food over to the Bowie Pantry at the end of February.
Their greatest need for this month is:
☆Childrens snacks for lunches
☆juice boxes
☆canned meat
☆Reduced soduim soups
☆tea bags/hot chocolate 
☆paper products 
Additionally the Bowie Pantry is accepting Easter Baskets this year for their families in need.
We will provide the baskets. 
If the congregation could please bring candy, pencils, puzzles, books, etc to fill the baskets, that would be greatly appreciated.
We’ll also be collecting gift cards to help out the adults as they shop for Easter.

Our next Trivia night will be March 2nd.  Mark your calendars!

An anonymous donor has made a donation towards an electronic sign at the street.  We are putting together a team to explore what this might entail, how much it cost, and how to best utilize the donation.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact Diane Eades.

If you are unable to join us in person, but would like to continue to make your tithe or offering, there are several ways to do so.  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.
