We Love Our Pender Children!

Child Protection Policy

 

Attention!! Anyone working with children!! The new and improved Child Protection Policy (CPP) is here! CPP has a new annual renewal timeline and it is all automated and online.
The new policy is now effective September to September of each year. It is no longer based on calendar year. Starting this month any one working with children must complete the online training and review the new CPP on Pender’s website. You can find it under the “Resources” tab, then click policies and forms. The Application and Annual Renewal Form (AAR) is automated and can be submitted from the website. No more paper forms!! No more training forms either because each person is required to review the online training each year.
If you do not have access to Pender’s website, a hard copy of the CPP and the AAR can be found in the Narthex and can be completed manually and returned to the tray marked CPP form. If you are currently working with children, you will need to have your Application and Annual Renewal Form completed by October 1 to continue working with children. Your application is good until September of the following year.

2017 PUMM Men’s Getaway/Adventure Weekend – October 13-15
Join us as we hear from guys just like us how they’ve found Jesus in the highs and the lows of life, and we’ll explore how others were able to find Jesus — from the top of the mountains to the worst of the battlefield.
You’ll enjoy three non-stop, action-packed days of fellowship, exploration and fun in nearby Frederick County, MD.

It’s Time to Update the Church Calendar!

calendar

 

Pender Members can add your own events to the church calendar now (no paper!).  Information is at http://www.penderumc.org/guidelines

It’s time to update the church calendar with all activities for the 2017 – 2018 school year!

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

Calendar activities are for one year only *September to August) and should be re-submitted annually.

If you’re not a Pender member, 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.
