DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME begins next Sunday, March 13th. Don’t forget to turn your clocks AHEAD one hour!

Saints & Singers Chorus Concert: Our cantata for this Easter, called “Jesus Changed Everything”, arranged by Mark Brymer, illuminates the message that the sacrifice of Jesus has changed … everything! Join us Sunday, March 13th here at Bourne UMC at 3:00 pm

Easter Choir: Calling on all voices to sing the Easter anthem on Easter Sunday! No strings attached! You don’t have to make a long term commitment. Just give Kari Fietek your email, attend at least two rehearsals (either Wednesday evenings or Sunday mornings, times TBA by email) and practice at home with recordings. Our Easter anthem is “Glory to God!” from the Handel Oratorio: Susanna – sung at both churches. It will be glorious!

Children will be offered a chance to practice ringing bells during church after children’s time every week commencing today, Sunday, February 21. We are ringing for the hymn “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” for Easter.

BIBLE STUDY will not meet this Thursday, March 10th, but will meet again on March 17th. It will not meet on the 24th (Holy Thursday), but it will meet on March 31st.

THE PSALMS DISCUSSION GROUP is adjourned until further notice.

BACKPACK PROJECT: We are collecting food items for our ongoing backpack project. For more information and a list of food needed, please pick up a flier on your way out to fellowship.
