Pivot Ministries Choir and Luncheon

Please join us on Sunday, September 29, as we welcome Pivot Ministries Choir for worship with a luncheon to follow!

Enter To Change, Remain To Grow, Depart to Serve …

We are excited to have our friends from the Pivot Ministries Choir join us for worship this morning as we enjoy their meaningful music.  Following the service, we will be sharing a potluck luncheon with them.

This year we have been invited to participate in Pivot’s current Pave the Way to Recovery fundraiser by donating an engraved brick to the project.  The brick will commemorate UMC Monroe’s longstanding support of the important mission of Pivot.  The cost of the brick is $200.  Missions will be collecting monetary donations towards the goal of $200 to donate a brick.  If you are interested in making a donation, place your donation in the collection plate by Sunday, September 29 (cash in an envelope labeled for “Pivot Brick” or check payable to UMCM with ”Pivot Brick” in memo line).

Mini Missions for Pivot Ministries

Click here for a current list of other items needed by Pivot for those who prefer to donate in that way.  Items can be left in the Mini Missions Wagon in the narthex by Sunday, September 29 and will be given to Pivot when they visit.  The important work of Pivot helping men overcome substance abuse with faith is solely supported by private donations.  Thank you for your continuing support!

A luncheon sign up sheet will be posted in the Narthex.

About Pivot Ministries

Founded in 1970, Pivot Ministries is a faith-based residential treatment program for men located in Bridgeport and Norwalk.  Pivot is a non-profit agency with four decades of successful experience assisting men challenged by alcohol and substance abuse.   Its mission is to treat drug and alcohol addiction as a spiritual problem and return the men to their families usefully whole.  Serving approximately 250 men per year, the Ministry reaches men throughout the Northeast and beyond.

Spiritual music is used as an integral component of a student’s recovery at Pivot Ministries. These men have been blessed with many gifted voices throughout many years, and all staff and students participate in the choir.

The Pivot Choir regularly sings at several area churches, and over the years the men have performed with the Norwalk Symphony, the New Haven Gospel Festival and several community gatherings. The Pivot Choir has also produced five CD’s available for purchase.
