The Early Bird Catches the Discount
2015 Program Calendar offers 10% off

NASHVILLE:  United Methodist churches already in planning mode for 2015 will receive 10 percent off the purchase of United Methodist Program Calendars if they order by August 31, 2014. With the mid-July release of the 2015 Official United Methodist Program Calendar, pastors, church leaders and staff can begin reserving dates for the new year.

New year with new theme
The 2015 calendars share the theme “Transforming the World for Christ,” by highlighting congregations who are activating their members and revitalizing their ministries:

  • One rapidly growing church in Bremerhaven, Germany has to keep adding pews to accommodate new members. “God has plans for us!” exclaim long-timers. 
  • Another church in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., believes their mission is to “connect the disconnected.” They go out into their community with acts of service in an event called “Worship Without Walls.”
  • Maumee (Ohio) United Methodist Church is reaching its multigenerational members with four different worship services—spirited traditional, contemporary, weekend travelers and regular Sunday worship. Church ministries include working with disabled adults, sponsoring coffee house gatherings and throwing grocery giveaways for church neighbors.

Variety of calendar styles fit variety of work styles
Whether calendar purchasers buyers are pick-up and go people, hang it on the wall aficionados or electronic organizers, there are several versions from which to choose. Customers are often so busy that they order one of each!

  1. Classic (horizontal and spiral, 11” x 8.5)
  2. Standard (vertical and stapled, 8.5” x 11”)
  3. Electronic (import to several different programs and sync to your handheld devices)
  4. In addition, wall calendars, reproducible calendar, desktop blotter, pocket calendar, and notebook calendar grids.

A plethora of information
All designs include agency contacts/websites, information services, Revised Common Lectionary readings, liturgical colors, next year’s events, special dates, a planning resource guide, a three-year plan-ahead calendar, United Methodist giving program information and ample space for notes.

Early birds, we’re ready for you!
The electronic calendars are already available at Shop.umc.org and other calendar versions are just days away from being ready to ship. Remember, order by August 31 and receive the early bird special—10 percent off any calendar; just use promo code CAL1510IW.
