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!

Local Short-term Mission Trip Opportunity




October 4-6, 2013
Serve as a one-on-one buddy for a child (usually ages 9-16) with special needs
Camp Highroad, Middleburg, VA (about a 45 minute ride West off Rt. 50)
Given the nature of this camp experience for the participants, these are not medically fragile children, but rather higher functioning children with a diagnosis such as Autism or Aspergers.
Open to volunteers 16 years and older. Trained staff will be on the weekend, so no special skills are required just a willing and loving heart.
If interested contact Laura Shuping by clicking on this link.
