PVUMC Hosts Second Annual Change the World Day
On Sunday, November 15, PVUMC invites you to join us for a day of service in lieu of worship. Like our first annual Change the World Day, we’ll have a time of blessing and prayer before we go out into the world (or stay on campus) to work, showing God’s love in action.
Watch this 30-second video to see what we did last year, and send the link to others, inviting them to join you THIS year:
On Sunday, October 18, we offered you the first opportunity to sign up for your favorite service project. We have about a dozen off-campus projects, and about the same number on campus. Click here for an interactive .pdf of the day’s schedule, and all the organizations and projects we’ll be involved with on that special day.
If you’re not signed up in advance, there will still be a place for you to help on campus, but if you would like to participate in an off-campus project, we recommend you sign up as soon as possible. Flyers are available on Sundays from now until November 15, with information about each venue, and particular projects needed to be done on that morning.
If you don’t sign up on the patio following worship, click here to sign up online at SignUpGenius.
Families are encouraged to sign up to work together, and children must be accompanied no matter where they serve, on or off campus.
Here’s a snapshot of the morning:
8:30 a.m.: Arrive on campus to pick up your Change the World Day T-shirt and check-in.
If you participated last year, please wear your shirt from last year.
9:00 a.m.: Join us in the Sanctuary for a short
Service of Blessing.
9:30 a.m.: Depart for your selected service venue, such as UMOM. Some projects will be on campus, including Snack & Pack and homeless care bags.
10:00 a.m.-12 noon: Work on- or off-campus.
12:30 p.m.: Celebration and BBQ
Look for sign-up sheets on the patio after worship beginning Sunday, October 18, the same day as our on-campus blood drive. We have an electronic sign-up available too, for you to choose where you (and your family) want to serve. We had as many as a dozen options off campus last year.
We’ll also have a 12-hour Prayer Vigil on November 8, in preparation for Change the World Day. Click here to read more and sign up to pray for 15 minutes on Sunday, November 8.
As more information becomes available, we’ll be sure to share it with you at pvumc.org.
