Mask Update

posted Jun 1, 2021, 2:27 PM by Bowmansville UMC

New guidelines have been issued as of this publication. These are directly from the unyumc.org website. It states, “The new guidelines allow fully vaccinated people to resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing. Unvaccinated persons, on the other hand, must continue to wear masks and practice physically distancing to safeguard their health and the health of others. This means a congregation’s Covid policies must ensure the safety of unvaccinated persons.” 

It was requested by Pastor Kevin during last week’s service that when you are up and mingling with the congregation and visitors, and not in our pews, that everyone wear their masks regardless of your vaccination status.

(Per June Messenger)

For the Children and Children at Heart by Andrea

posted Mar 28, 2021, 5:45 PM by Deanna Skare


Spring is full of beauty and new life. One of the greatest things we can do is to see the big picture of God; see His hand in the little and big moments in our lives, and trust in Him. All the good and beautiful things in our lives are reminders of God’s goodness.

Think about when you look up to the sky and see the sun coming through the clouds, or when you go for a hike and enjoy the plants and wildlife that surrounds you. When you count the stars, or watch a butterfly emerge from its cocoon. Those are the moments we need to pause and remember who recreated it all.

“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.” Psalm 19:1



“O Lord, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth, who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!” Psalm 8:1

“For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities– all things have been created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16

Be in awe of the outdoors, but also take note to see God’s glory in His world and praise Him for it.
