Video of 5/6 UMD Memorial Celebration

“We mourn the lives lost in our University of Maryland community and feel deeply that all Terrapins should be honored for their contributions to our campus. Our first annual campus Memorial Celebration will bring our community together to remember the lives of Maryland students, faculty, and staff who have passed. In coming together to remember, we mourn these losses as a community and lean on each other through this shared experience. This ceremony is symbolic of what it means to be part of the Terrapin family, and we encourage all members of our community to join us.”

Pray for those honoring their lost loved ones.

5/2 Open Dialogue on Trust in God amid Finals, 6 pm

Meeting link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays

Hi Everyone, 


How has your week been? The end of the semester is approaching. Do you have a lot of work to accomplish, or has it been fairly manageable? We are praying that you are able to focus, but are also able to take time for yourself in the midst of it. 


Recently in conversation, we have discussed a pattern of anxiety during exam time. We can put a lot of pressure on ourselves to succeed, which can feel very burdensome. This Sunday we plan to talk about the idea of trusting in God during these moments. How does your faith/trust in God play into finals? Does it play into finals? What kind of thoughts or mantras do you hold onto before exams?


This Sunday will be an open conversation, including some uplifting readings and songs. Feel free to share your thoughts or simply listen as we explore this topic together.

We hope to see you then!
Have a good weekend!

Meeting link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays.

Hello Everyone!

How has your week been? It is a busy time for many of us, so we would love to hear all about how you are doing and how we can be in prayer with you.

 
This Sunday we are going to devote our hour of worship to a relaxed time of prayer and connection. You are more than welcome to offer up your own prayer or simply join us with your own joys and concerns. It will be a time to pause the busyness of life and listen to the Holy Spirit as it is at work in our lives.

 
We hope to see you then!
Have a good weekend!

Meeting Link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays

Hi Everyone, 


How has your week been? In recent programs, we have discussed how April often brings a mix of emotions with the changing weather, stress of school, and busy schedules. We pray that you have been able to take care of yourselves in the midst of everything. Let us know how we can be of support. 


In light of everything, we thought it would be fun to host a game night this Sunday during our regular worship hour.

Join us at 6 pm, and we will provide instructions for how to access the games and then, enjoy together!
We hope that you can make it!

4/4 Easter Worship Service, 6 pm

Hi Everyone, 
We hope that you are well and have the opportunity to observe Good Friday today. This day holds deep sorrow, and it provides the chance to reflect on the many innocent deaths that we have witnessed this year. Reach out if you need to process this heavy day with any of us, or join one of the services that we suggested via this blog below. For the sake of communication, we want to mention our Easter service while understanding the need to rest in emotions of Good Friday. 


Our Easter service will begin this Sunday (4/4) at 6pm on Zoom using this link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays. Join us for a time of reflection and celebratory song as we look towards the empty tomb. 
We hope to see you there!

Blessings,
