Pender’s Music Ministry is considering starting a transportation ministry to help those families who are unable to get their children to the church for choir and bell rehearsals. The idea behind this is to pick up children before the rehearsals only – we would not be able to bring them back home.
If picking your child up truly is not possible for you, let us know and we may be able to find other parents in your area willing to carpool. Before we can do that, however, we need to know how much interest there would be in starting this ministry.
If this Music Transportation Ministry would help your family, please contact Theresa Carpenter here.
Let Theresa know:
. child’s name
. where your child would need to be picked up from
. whether or not you would be able to pick your child up at 6 PM
It’s that time of year again! Pender’s Music Ministry Registrations are now open!
You can sign up your children and teens here:
And you can sign yourselves up here:
Even if you are a returning member, but please register anyway so that we can make sure everything is up to date and in the same place.
Thank you and let us know if you have any questions! We hope you all are having a great summer!
