Hopefully, you’ll be yelling BINGO as you fill out this ‘Caregiving Bingo’ sheet, made in partnership with our local NOVA Churches!
Featuring boxes for self-care, prayer, and calling people without internet access or in nursing homes, this caregiving edition of bingo encourages us to look at how we are caring for the needs of every person in the community in this time.
So print this out and use pen or use your best photoshopping skills, but we’d love to see your bingo card! Email a picture of your card to the church office or post it on Facebook and tag @nokesvillecob!
Will you have a bingo? More than one? How many bingos do you think we’ll have altogether? Let’s find out!
The young adult group from Arlington and Washington City CoBs have invited us to join their mid-week dance party Wednesdays at 5:15 on ZOOM. (Young Adult is a state of mind – all are welcome, including children).
To feel comfortable with the “required skill level” (i.e. none), here is a super short video (less than a minute) from a previous gathering – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CFy02cbpiI
This is an opportunity to gather with other NoVA Brethren folks and get your body moving a little bit. The event is led by Shawn Lent – an incredible human being. You can find out more about her at: https://shawnlent.com/?fbclid=IwAR26hP4psCWzfgpLzHmX1IAXkvCLxeB_iqFvKb4E9lt4jrbNmqg-PkKnAfE
Watch for an email each Wednesday morning with the link, or contact the church office. This is a recurring event, so put it on your calendars. What a great opportunity to take care of your body and your spirit.
Harper Buettner attended a district Jr. High retreat earlier this year where David Radcliff was the speaker. David is the director for New Community Profit (NCP), a small non-profit organization that works to educate about global social justice and environmental concerns and providing ways to take action. Harper was inspired by a conversation where she learned that it only costs 10 cents to fund a day of school for girls in Nepal and South Sudan, so she collected dimes to show her support! Thank you for your generous support of NCP’s Give A Girl A Chance initiative. She raised $419.00. Way to go Harper!.

We hope you have saved the date for our 125th homecoming – Saturday and Sunday, August 29 & 30, 2020.
We will be monitoring the COVID19 situation, and if plans need to be postponed or modified, we will send an email, post it on our website, and update our Facebook page.
Meanwhile, we are going ahead with the shirt order. T-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts can be ordered starting now thru June 1 using the link below. The shirts feature our 125th Anniversary logo and are available in a variety of sizes and colors. Shipping is $5.00 per order, (save shipping costs by combining orders with family and friends). Many thanks to Kathy Carroll for setting up the order. They don’t have a “date” on them, so they can be worn and enjoyed no matter when we gather, and for years to come!
Step out of your comfort zone and invite a coworker, new neighbors, family member or a complete stranger to our church service March 15 and to the carry in meal following the service. This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce our church family to others who may be looking for a place to worship. Meat and drinks will be provided. Looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends. Questions, see Gayle Hawkins or a member of the Congregational Life Ministry Team.
