Pender UMC is dedicated to keeping our church and our church family as healthy as possible. We require events to adhere to all guidelines and requirements as laid out by the Arlington District who will give final approval to all requests. Thank you for partnering with us, and please let us know how we can best clarify or streamline this process.

Donate Items: Our American Heritage Girls are collecting items to pack shoeboxes. Items needed include school supplies, soaps/washcloths, toothbrushes/combs, T-shirts, socks, and accessories. Note: NO Candy or Toothpaste.

Share Christ's love throughout the world by participating in Operation Christmas Child!
Pack a box:  Pack a shoe box or two with your family, bible study or small group.  Look for information at the OCC display near the front doors.  Filled boxes are due to Pender on Nov. 22nd.
Pray: Pray that God will direct each person packing shoe boxes to put in just the right items for the child who will receive the box.  Pray also that the children will receive Christ as their Lord and Saviour - the best gift of all.
Provide shipping: Donations for shipping are needed as each box costs $9 to ship. Checks should be made out to Pender UMC, with OCC in the memo. 
Donations may also be made online at  www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
Receive boxes: Help receive packed shoe boxes from the community between Nov. 16th -23rd using our new contactless drop-off!  Training will be provided.  Positions include greeting visitors and unloading and packing up filled shoe boxes.  PPE will be provided and social distancing will be practiced.
