Community Blood Drive @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Aug 19 @ 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

Platte Woods UMC is hosting a Community Blood Drive on Sunday, August 19 from 8:00 am-12:30 pm in the gym. There is a blood shortage and we are making it as easy as possible to fit giving blood into your schedule. Join us for worship then head downstairs to donate. When you share a pint of blood you may literally be sharing life with someone who really needs it. An appointment is not required, but ensures there will be enough supplies.

Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church

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

During the school year, PWUMC offers Couples’ Nights Out once a month (usually on the first Friday) to give couples an opportunity for an evening to themselves.

Each CNO starts with a short program (usually 30 minutes or less) followed by a date night where they discuss what they’ve learned.

We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2018/2019 season. Our study is based on the book “Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage” by Dr. Kevin Leman. Dr. Leman offers frank information from a Christian perspective along with practical suggestions to improve intimacy. For more information and to order a copy for yourselves look up “Sheet Music” by Dr. Kevin Leman.

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 check-in is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.
