The Pumpkins are Coming!


On October 6th at 4pm the pumpkin truck will arrive at Pender! We need all the help we can get to get the pumpkins off the truck and into our patch!
After that, we need volunteers to sit in the patch from 11am-7pm daily (except Sunday). Please consider taking a shift or many! Your time supports the Pender Turning Point Youth, the Navajo Indians in Arizona who grew our pumpkins and of course Tim.
Also…teenagers, if you need service hours, this counts!!
Thank you and see you in the Patch!

You’ve Been Flocked!



The Flamingos have landed!
Our Turning Point Youth Group has been very busy this summer!  Think PINK!
Pink flamingos have been showing up in the yards of Pender members all over the area! All done in a spirit of friendship and fun in hopes of bringing smiles to all who see them!
Want to get in on the fun? Flocking details:
  • If flocked, the flamingos will roost in your lawn until the following night when they will mysteriously migrate to another friend’s (victim’s) lawn. (If flocked, the youth group will gladly accept any donation of your choice for the removal of their feathered friends.)
  • If you would like to specify the next victim, a small donation of $10 to the Youth Group will be accepted. (Pick up a “Flock a Friend” form on the table near the coat racks on Sundays.)
  • Anti-flocking insurance is also available, guaranteeing that no flock of flamingos will roost on your lawn for the amazing price of $25! (Purchase anti-flocking Insurance on Sundays at the table near the coat racks.)
Thank you for your sense of humor and support!

Penny Wars!



The Pender Turning Point Youth Group is putting on a Penny War to raise money for the World Vision 30 Hour Famine that they participated in back in February. Look for jars marked for local high schools and two colleges in the Church Lobby on Sundays now through the first week in April.

How it works:

Pennies and paper money are positive points.

For example a penny would be +1 point and a $5 bill would be +500 points

All silver change count as negative points.

So nickels are -5, dimes are -10, and quarters are -25.

Therefore you want pennies and paper money to go in your own high school or college jar and silver change to go in your rival’s jar.

All money raised will go to World Vision.
