August 18th News and Notes

Listening Sessions
The Board has received the results of the CAT.  We are organizing a series of listening sessions (no longer meals!) to ask the congregation some questions about who we are and where God is calling us in the future!  We have organized three in person sessions and three via Zoom.  You can sign up in person or through this link or on the sign up sheets in the Narthex.  Please add your voice to this valuable conversation!
Pastor Chris’s last day
Chris has answered the call to serve Northwood Presbyterian Church as their pastor.  His last Sunday at UPB will be September 25th.  For more details, see his letter here.
Food Pantry
The Mission and Service committee will be collecting school supplies and back packs until August 21st.
Greatest Needs at the  Bowie Food Pantry now are:
Canned Vegetables (NOT green beans or corn)
Canned Meats (e.g., beef stew, chili, corned beef hash) Peanut Butter (18-ounce size)
Condiments (e.g., mustard, salad dressing, ketchup, spices)
Please note: REGULAR ITEMS ARE PREFERRED. The Pantry has a few large families, but most households consist of 1 to 3 members.


Trivia  and happy hour will return via Zoom at 7:00 on Thursday, September 8th.  Mark your calendars!

YouTube Channel

We are posting our virtual worship to our YouTube channel each week in case you miss worship –


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   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.
