Penny Wars!

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.

Empty Your Pockets — Help Fight World Hunger

penny-wars

 

Pender Turning Point Youth Group has been raising money for World Vision through a “Penny War!”

Each high school represented in the Youth Group has their own jar in which to collect money. The jar that ends up with the highest number of points wins, and the youth who participated in the 30 Hour Famine from that school get a prize! The jars will be out until the end of March.

How it works:

  • Pennies & paper money are positive points (for example, a penny = +1 point and a $5 bill = +500 points)
  • All silver change is counted as negative points (nickels = minus 5 points, dimes = minus 10 points, & quarters = minus 25 points)

Put your pennies and paper money in your own high school’s jar and put silver change in your rival’s jar!

YES! This IS Pender’s Youth Pastor!

Why does Pender’s Youth Pastor look like this?

Once again, Tim Lyberger challenged our youth to raise $5,000 for World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. If they did, Tim agreed to let them choose an outfit for him to wear every day for one week.   (Who remembers last year’s pink outfit?!)

We are proud to announce that our Pender youth raised $6,381 which will feed 17 children for an entire year!

More exciting news:  Mack Parrish, one of our Youth Leaders, was also a part of this challenge and after his wedding he will have to do something as well!  So, stay tuned!
