The PVUMC Preschool Board is co-hosting a sale with the Serendipities church gift shop for the holidays, November 15-16, 2017, 9 am-1:30 pm. This is the perfect opportunity to grab a few holiday gifts and stocking stuffers for the kids in your life and support the preschool at the same time.

Here is a sample of some of the items that will be offered:
• Books
• Bathtub toys
• Puzzles
• Stuffed animas
• Games
• Doll/accessories
• Cars/trucks
• Educational activities

The shop is located in the same building as the Childcare Center and Library, and faces the office building (B). Items will be displayed in front of the Library (across from D1) as well as in the shop itself.


Shop and Share

Serendipities will be open for Shop and Share on two Wednesdays, November 29 and December 6, 9 am-7 pm. You can designate the proceeds from your sale to specific nonprofits such as UMOM, Audrey’s Angels, Mingus Mountain Camp (scholarships), Wesley Community Center, or support all four. The shop will be open every Sunday and Wednesday during the holiday season except for the dates noted below.


Special Shop Openings

On the evening of Sunday, December 10, 2017, when the church presents the PVUMC Christmas Concert,  at 6 pm, the gift shop will be open for business, 5-7:30 pm. The concert begins at 6 pm and is a great way to usher in the Christmas season. A dessert reception follows in the Fellowship Center. Stop by Serendipities before the concert while your children rehearse, during intermission, or during the reception time.

The shop will also be open on Wednesday and Thursday, December 20 and 21, 2017, when the Preschool has its Christmas program in the sanctuary. Stop by before or after — 9 am-12 noon.

There is also a special Saturday opening, 9 am-3 pm, Saturday, November 4, 2017 for the Enneagram Workshop, with Beatrice Chestnut and Special Guest Uranio Paes who present “The Way of the Arrows: Using the Enneagram Symbol as a Path For Growth.”

For more information about this event and other Enneagram programs, visit Scholarships are available.

Serendipities will be closed on Change the World Day, November 12; Christmas Eve, December 24; and Wednesday, November 22, the day before Thanksgiving.
