Interfaith Council of Bowie is hosting its first fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022, from 3-4 p.m. at the Sycamore Club, 12600 Fairwood Parkway, Bowie, MD. We are partnering with the Bowie Supportive Housing Corporation to raise funds to assist an Afghan refugee family settle into their new Bowie home. It is free to attend, but donations will be appreciated!
The Children, Youth and Family Committee is looking for adult volunteers to be buddies to the children in our church family by checking in on them once or twice a month with a card or note. We hope this will build and strengthen relationships between our children and adults. With all the challenges our kids are dealing with, we think it is more important now than before that our children know we love them, are there for them, and they are an important part of our church family.
Buddies will be assigned for 3 months: October-December, January-March, and April-June. The number of buddies each adult has will be determined by the number of participating adults and kids. As Chris mentioned on September 4, the buddy program helped to increase the sense of community during COVID. We can only imagine what it will do now, as we start to get back to some sense of normal.
If you are interested in being a buddy, please let Sue Kennedy know by Tuesday, September 20. In addition, if you have any questions or concerns, talk to Sue. email@example.com
