Help UMCOR Help the People of Louisiana!

louisiana

 

Days of torrential rain inundated the state of Louisiana, beginning August11. Flooding has impacted at least 40,000 homes, and about 30,000 people and 1,000 pets have been rescued from high water in homes and cars. At least 11 people are known to have died in the disaster.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) issued an emergency grant to the Louisiana Annual Conference, releasing 2,950 cleanup buckets to United Methodist churches in LaFayette and Baton Rouge, areas severely affected by the floods, for distribution to affected households. UMCOR stands ready to release another 2,000 cleanup buckets to go to the most vulnerable places as identified by the Louisiana Conference, as more cleanup buckets are being assembled to meet more needs.
The state of Mississippi also was affected by flooding, and UMCOR has readied relief supplies to go there, when the water recedes.
Help support the UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response Advance, #901670.
For more information and to donate to UMCOR, click on this link to their website.

Time to Update the Church Calendar

calendar

 

It’s time to update the church calendar with all activities for the 2016 – 2017 school year!

Our calendar shows up in many places – our website, the Church Life app, screens in the church lobbies & Sunday bulletins.

Many people rely on it; therefore it’s important that it be comprehensive, up to date and correct.

Activities include all church functions – whether they occur at the church or offsite.

Meetings, Bible studies, small groups, rehearsals, etc.

Calendar activities are for one year only & have to be re-submitted annually.

By getting your activity on the calendar, you are assured that – if it occurs at Pender- it will get a room assignment!

Click on this link for the RESOURCE REQUEST FORM. Fill it out and drop it off in the church office or scan it and send it by email to church.calendar@penderumc.org.

If you have any questions, call the church office at (703) 278-8023.

(If you submitted your activity in January for the 2016 calendar year, this does not apply to you. You will need to re-submit in January 2017)
