UPDATED:  Feb. 8 - Bishop's Pre-Lenten Day Apart and Worship Workshop - COMBINED!
Clergy Day Apart and Worship Workshop Combined into One Event on Thursday, Feb. 8
To address the inclement weather expected for Wednesday morning, the Bishop's Lenten Day Apart with the clergy, (scheduled for Wednesday at First UMC Hyattsville) and the Worship Workshop with Marcia McFee (scheduled for Thursday at the Mission Center) are being combined.
Both events will be held:
Thursday, Feb. 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
at Mt. Zion UMC
12430 Scaggsville Road in Highland
All those, laity or clergy, who were planning to attend either of the original events, should come on Thursday to Mt. Zion UMC, where Marcia McFee will guide us into the season of Lent and explore how to create worship that involves "deeply evocative and artful rituals that transform lives to transform the world."

Mar. 11 - UMCOR Sunday

UMCOR Sunday is right around the corner. This churchwide special Sunday with offering provides United Methodists the opportunity to help our brothers and sisters around the world in their time of need.

Our generous gifts through the UMCOR Sunday offering support the work of the United Methodist Committee on Relief. UMCOR provides immediate assistance in the wake of disasters and participates in ongoing ministries of food, shelter, health, and peace.

On March 11, our congregations will receive this special offering that ensures that when a crisis happens, 100 percent of giving for that disaster goes to those in need.

Read about how your giving changes lives in the U.S. and around the world.
