Shop and Share
Serendipities will be open for Shop and Share throughout the Christmas shopping season. You can designate your sale to benefit one or all of the following mission-oriented organizations: UMOM, Audrey’s Angels, Mingus Mountain Camp (scholarships), Wesley Community Center. The shop will be open extended hours each Sunday, November 20-December 18, 2016. Shop and Share will continue on Wednesday mornings, 9 am-12 noon, November 30-December 21, 2016. The shop reopens in the new year on Sunday, January 8.
The first weekend of December, the shop will be open twice. First, 9 am-3 pm on Saturday, December 3, when there will be a special Raku workshop held in the morning to make ceramic Christmas ornaments held in H7. Registration is limited, and costs $20. Explore your Christmas story while experiencing the transformative raku process. Select a handmade ceramic ornament and use colorful glazes to decorate. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register or for more details about this artist-led experience open to 6th graders and up with a parent or guardian.
On the evening of Sunday, December 4, when the church presents the PVUMC Christmas Concert: Sing Noel, at 6 pm, the gift shop will be open for business 5-8 pm. The concert begins at 6 pm and is a great way to usher in the Christmas season. Paradise Winds, a woodwind quintet who performed as part of the PVUMC Community Concert Series last year, as well as PVUMC’s own children, youth and adult choirs, will make this an evening to remember. A dessert reception follows in the Fellowship Center. Stop by Serendipities before the concert while your children rehearse, during intermission, or after during the reception time.
If you would like to volunteer to help in the gift shop, please contact one of the volunteer managers: Barbara or Meg. Retail experience is not needed, though appreciated. All proceeds from Serendipities go toward missions.
