Did you know that heaven is not guaranteed? In fact, we believe there are forces at work to knock us off our path and keep us from our intended destination. This is serious business, but victory can be ours! Make sure you’re among the victorious and join us today.

Mulch!

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.

Order Mulch Here
