Short-Term Mission Trip to Thailand ~ Is God Calling You?

thailand

 

 

We are planning a Short-Term Mission trip to Northwestern Thailand in support of Austin and Sinte House (missionaries supported by Pender’s Faith Promise giving) from October 16-31.

During the trip, we’ll have the opportunity to provide evangelism, outreach, adult and children’s programs to those living in the Thai-Burma border region, as well as refugees in the Noh Poh Refugee Camp.

For more information, please contact Mark Reese by clicking on  this link or attend an information session this Sunday, July 7th after the 11 am service.

News from the Pender ReGift Thrift Store

Pender ReGift Thrift Store

Pender ReGift Thrift Store is an outreach ministry of Pender United Methodist Church. Originally formed as “The Outreach Center,” which still operates at 12401 Alder Woods Dr., Fairfax VA 22033, the thrift store was started because the outgrowth from the at-church location.

We accept gently-used material goods. They can either be brought to the store during business hours, or taken to the church’s pod at any time. If you need a pickup, then you need to complete our online donation pick-up form, and your pick-up will be scheduled.

Our nonprofit mission is to be a witness by distributing material goods to those who need them. We have worked with both governmental and nonprofit organizations to maximize our distribution effectiveness. We’ve distributed locally, nationally, and internationally. We helped quite a few people establish households after being homeless or institutionalized.

Our store helps finance our operations, but as yet, our store has yet to cover all costs. Last month, your generous individual donations helped bridge the gap.

There is too much for me to do it all by myself. Currently we are actively seeking volunteers for marketing, for pricing and sorting, for deliveries and pick-ups, and to help mind the store.

If we cannot sell an item, or find a good home for it, we will recycle. Recycling is a distinguishing characteristic of our nonprofit. In addition to traditional recycling of cardboard, paper, plastic, and aluminum, we also recycle for metal, electronics, wood, and hardback books.

We hope that you will support our cause by shopping, volunteering, or donating.

Thanks!

Maryann Weber

Director
