PVUMC Hosts Third Annual Change the World Day
On Sunday, November 13, 2016, PVUMC invites you to join us for a day of service in lieu of worship. Like our past two events, 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. Click the SignUpGenius logo below and see the projects and availability. On-campus projects have greater availability. And, if you decide to join us Sunday morning at 8 am, we’ll get you plugged into a project. No worries!
You’re invited to serve at one of the following organizations off campus:
- Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary
- Lost Our Home Pet Foundation
- UMOM new Day Centers
- Justa Center
- Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development
- Hospice of the Valley
- Red Mountain Academy
- White Dove Thrift Shops
- Beatitudes Campus
- Scottsdale YMCA
- Wesley Community Center
Or, help on campus with these projects:
- Snack and Pack — pack Thanksgiving food boxes for families served by UMOM
- Biblical Garden clean up
- Kitty cozies
- Homeless bags
- Nativity rehab & set up
- Columbarium clean up
Sign up today; watch this short video to get inspired!
Sunday, October 23 will be your 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.
We’ll also introduce our Snack and Pack project. Watch this video below featuring Dave Hepburn, chair of Change the World Day 2016 and coordinator of special projects at UMOM New Day Centers, who receive the 210 family food boxes from this project. Click here to GIVE NOW to Snack and Pack. Choose “Missions” and type “Snack and Pack” in the comments section. We thank you for your generosity.
If you’re not signed up in advance for a Change the World Day project, there will still be a place for you to help on campus at Snack and Pack and at our other service stations, but if you would like to participate in an off-campus project, we recommend you sign up as soon as possible.
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:
8-8:30 am: Arrive on campus to pick up your Change the World Day T-shirt and check-in.
If you participated last year, or the year before, please wear your “God’s Love in Action” T-shirt.
8:30 am: Join us in the Sanctuary for a short Service of Blessing.
9 am: Depart for your selected service venue, such as UMOM. Some projects will be on campus, including Snack & Pack and homeless care bags.
9 am-12 noon: Work on- or off-campus.
12:30 pm: Celebration Lunch in the Fellowship Center
Look for sign-up sheets on the patio after worship beginning Sunday, October 23. We’ll also begin taking Snack and Pack donations Sunday, October 23, which is also Preschool Sunday.
As more information becomes available, we’ll be sure to share it with you at pvumc.org.
