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.

Ash Wednesday @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Mar 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Ash Wednesday @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading to Easter. The mark of ashes upon our forehead (or hand) is in recognition of not only our mortality but our need for repentance. The season of Lent is an opportunity to turn our attention back to God and prepare for the gift of eternal life, which we celebrate at Easter. We will have 2 opportunities for you to receive ashes.

  • Stop by the Parkville Coffee House between 6:30-10:30 a.m. to receive ashes.
  • Join us for our Ash Wednesday Worship Service in the Worship Center at 7:00 p.m. where you will receive ashes. Childcare is available for 3 years and under.

All are welcome!



PWUMC Comedy Night With Devin Henderson @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm

Join us for an evening of laughs with Devin Henderson, a self-described “recovering magician” and clean comedian.

Devin’s Bio
Funny motivational speaker and corporate comedian Devin Henderson is known by many simply as “The Drop Guy.” Devin speaks to organizations nationwide about how to DROP mental barriers that eliminate effectiveness and pick UP practices that elevate excellence. But he is no ordinary keynote speaker. Devin incorporates comedy, magic, and soccer skills into his audience-interactive message. He has presented in all fifty states except Hawaii, Alaska, and about fifteen others.

“Devin Henderson is engaging, funny, very smart and incredibly handsome.” -Ginger Henderson, Devin’s mom.

Devin has been professionally cracking up, amazing and inspiring audiences for fifteen years. He has opened for comedians Sinbad and Mike Birbiglia and is a Certified Speaking Professional, which is like the black belt of public speaking. So don’t mess with him – his humor is lethal. Devin is also a self-published author. “Share Your Magic” is his best-selling book of all time, mainly because it’s his only book. Devin wrote this bio himself, which is challenging and actually kind of weird.

This event is free and open to all. Register online!
