Penny Wars!

penny-wars

 

The Pender Turning Point Youth Group is putting on a Penny War to raise money for the World Vision 30 Hour Famine that they participated in back in February. Look for jars marked for local high schools and two colleges in the Church Lobby on Sundays now through the first week in April.

How it works:

Pennies and paper money are positive points.

For example a penny would be +1 point and a $5 bill would be +500 points

All silver change count as negative points.

So nickels are -5, dimes are -10, and quarters are -25.

Therefore you want pennies and paper money to go in your own high school or college jar and silver change to go in your rival’s jar.

All money raised will go to World Vision.

Share Your God Moments During Lent!

 

God works in our lives in so many wonderful ways.  As we spend time during the Lenten season focused on God’s presence, we would love to hear how you see God working in your lives or in the lives of others.  We believe the more you see God, the more you SEE God!  Share your God moments with us!  Look for this box located in the Church Lobby and write down your God moments!  

“Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.” (Psalm 145:4-7)
