Proceeds Support Local Missions and Nonprofits
On Sunday, May 5, 2019, Meg Wolfe presented a check to the church that represented $18K in donations to local PVUMC-supported missions from the gift shop. These include nonprofit organizations like Audrey’s Angels, Mingus Mountain Camp and Retreat Center, UMOM, and the Wesley Community Center. Serendipities’ volunteers were also commended in worship for the long hours they devoted to the gift shop this year. What a great way to be God’s love in action!
Call for Crafters and Artists
Christmas may seem far away as we head into the summer months, but the managers at Serendipities, our church gift shop, believe in planning ahead. They would like to invite all crafters, photographers, authors and artists to donate items to the shop now to sell from October-December. All profits would be donated to local missions. It’s a way to showcase our local talent and give them a place to showcase their wares as well as help others. All items will be collected by September 15 and displayed during the month of October in the shop. Items can be Christmas themed or otherwise. Artists will have an opportunity to take special orders as well. Email Meg Wolfe, gift shop manager, for more information.

Serendipities’ Fall Reopening
Mark your calendar for Serendipities’ reopening after a long, hot summer on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
Every purchase benefits local PVUMC-supported missions. Many of the items in the shop are USA-made, many by local ventures, or handcrafted by artisans from around the world, who depend on these sales for their incomes. Your purchases help them make a living wage and lift up those in their communities.
