Your Best Super Bowl Party Yet!

On Sunday, February 5, 2017, millions of people will gather in their homes to watch commercials and party. In between the commercials, there is a football game as well.

The UMW has a way to make Super Bowl LI your best party yet, even though the Redskins had to stay at home. We are selling Liliana’s empanadas for you and your football-loving guests to enjoy. These things have way more filling than Tom Brady’s football, and that includes organic beef, organic chicken, or organic vegetables! Stay tuned as we may add other flavors as well.

We will be selling these award-winning, worthy-of-the-Lombardi-trophy gems after each of the services over the next three weeks – in the coat rack area. The prices are $10 for a box of 6 large (5″ empanadas) and $5 for 6 small (3″ empanadas). The proceeds of this sale will go to the UMW’s short-term mission fund, which we use to send Pender women to spread the gospel of Jesus to other countries where football means something entirely different.

Thanks for supporting us!

Mulch Madness

Pender Men Mulch Sale 2015

From Thursday, March 5 at 8:00am to Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 11:30pm

March 21, Delivering 8am-5pm 

What a winter…let’s hope that Spring is truly just around the corner!  Time to order mulch from your Pender United Methodist Men.

This is our annual fund raiser to enabling the Pender Men to sponsor short-term mission trips for men from Pender to minister in places like Peru, Thailand, Poland, Paraguay, and Philippi, WV. Funds raised also support local missions including the Pender ReGift Thrift Store, Voices of Youth, FACETS, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries, and other vital Pender activities.

This year we will be delivering mulch on Saturday March 21st.

Our supplier has maintained their costs, so mulch costs the same as last year.  Each 3 cu ft bag of traditional shredded hardwood mulch will cost $4.75 delivered to your driveway.  Again this year we will also be offering Shredded Pine, and Pine Mini-Nuggets at the reasonable price of $5.25 per 3 cu ft bag.

Volunteers are needed for delivery on Saturday and during the week if available. Also need volunteers with pickup trucks. Please contact Dave Cacner or register to help inside the Narthex or online with your order.

Interested in determining the amount of mulch you need?  Check out these links:

We deliver rain or shine (or snow!).  Please dress appropriately.
