Maundy Thursday Live Worship
April 9, 2020, 7:30-8:30pm, Online
Remember the mandates Jesus offered as he gathered with the disciples in the Upper Room - humble yourselves, remember me, love one another.
Join an interactive Zoom gathering for worship. We will explore the “mandates” that frame this service and we’ll share a “love feast.” You’ll want to have a favorite comfort food and maybe a cup of tea, coffee or something else that brings you joy.
Email Gina Dawson to receive the Zoom information so you can join.

Who Are We as the People of the Baltimore-Washington Conference Study
Part 3 begins April 13, 2020 at 7:00pm on Zoom, with Pastor Laura
This is the third and final 6-week segment of the Who Are We? series. If you have not been part of the first two segments, not a problem. You are still welcome to join this third segment.
This segment of the study explores our identity as people called United Methodists within the Baltimore-Washington Conference. Our ancestors, who lived out their faith in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the panhandle of West Virginia, created this vibrant expression of church and made disciples of Jesus Christ close at home and throughout the world, and you will hear their stories…
Tuesdays at Two Bible Study
Begins April 14, 2020 at 2:00pm on Zoom, with Gina Dawson
Bring your favorite Bible - if you have a study Bible then bring that (a study Bible isn’t required - any Bible will do). Together we will read, learn, and discuss the New Testament Book of James. Gina will bring in information from study commentaries from Phil’s library here at home, and you’re welcome to use your study Bible notes, and research on your own. We’ll go at our own group pace, reading, sharing, discussing, and reflecting on our times in relation to what God is sharing with us through James.
Contact Gina Dawson to do a Zoom test or sign up, and you will receive the Zoom credentials for this gathering (link, phone numbers, password, etc.).

Guided by facts and written for people who like evidence, data, and logic-driven thinking, he explores 14 investigative questions about Jesus, his life, and his legacy…
