Couples' Night Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2017/2018 season. We will be using the book by Francis and Lisa Chan, “You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity”. Francis and Lisa will address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great marriage?” Learn more about resources available for this study.

Cost is $10 per couple each month when registered 10 days before the event. (Reservations after that will be charged a $20 late fee).  This covers the adult program AND childcare. Childcare drop-off is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.

The Birds & The Bees Parent Night @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Sep 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
The Birds & The Bees Parent Night @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

How would you like a new strategy for “the talk”? What if you answered your kids’ questions when they’re asking them? The Birds & The Bees was established as a way to bring a time-tested and popular strategy to a new tech-savvy generation. Megan Michelson’s candor and in-the-trenches insight brings parents a well-balanced approach to talking to their kids about sex. The Birds & The Bees understands that the culture around us has changed dramatically and therefore our approach towards “the talk” should too.

Megan Michelson will speak to parents of preschoolers and young elementary school children on The Birds and The Bees. We want to make you confident and comfortable connecting with your kids and discussing the topics parents fear most.

The link to her website is www.birds-bees.com for more information.

Register today to attend and for childcare.

Faith in Action — Numana Packing Event @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Sep 30 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Platte Woods UMC is partnering with Liberty and Excelsior Springs United Methodist Churches to pack 80,000 meals on one Saturday. More than 600 volunteers will come together to provide nutritious meals that will be distributed to starving children in Rwanda and locally in the Kansas City area through Harvesters.

Numana volunteers have packaged over 37 million meals from coast to coast with the help of over 197,000 volunteers since 2009, and they welcome people from all ages and backgrounds. This is a hands-on project in which almost any age or skill level can participate.

If you’ve participated in a meal packing event before, you know it’s a time where families, friends, Sunday School classes and others come together to bring needed nutrition to eople around the world and in our community. This is also an opportunity for youth to earn community service hours for school while learning more about the needs around hunger in the metro.

How Can I Help?

Volunteer!
Sign Up ButtonVolunteers are critical to the success of any packing event. Fortunately, there’s a job for nearly everyone! Kids as young as preschool can have fun decorating boxes and compacting bags of food. There are plenty of “sitting” jobs for people who have mobility issues or who cannot stand for long periods. Please consider signing up for one or more one-hour shifts with your family, your friends, your small group or others you know who are not part of the church but would like to serve: this is open to all!

Donate!
Donate ButtonDid you know that 30 cents is all it takes to pay for one nutritious meal that will help to feed a family?
For $30, you can supply 100 meals … for $65, you can provide an entire case of meals that will provide 216 meals!
