Thank you for your support of the Faith Promise Missions Budget each year! The Faith Promise Mission’s Budget is separate from the general budget of the church and is funded by faith promises. A faith promise is when you make a promise to provide financial support to missions, you may not know where the resources will come from, and you trust God to provide the resources to meet your promise. This year’s Faith Promise Missions Budget goal is $325,000 and supports global and local missionaries, missionary organizations, short-term mission trips and projects.

Today’s Bible Verse: Romans 13:6-7

taxes

 

 

Romans 13:6-7 New International Version (NIV)

This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Sing ‘n Celebrate This Evening – at Pender UMC

sing-celebrate-text-header

Sing ‘n Celebrate is Pender Church’s informal evening worship service that has a focus on contemporary Christian music and original dramas and testimonies. Dress is casual and the atmosphere offers a wonderful means to start the week with God in mind.

In addition to music and testimonies, prayer is offered. Communion is served periodically.

Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ April 12  at 7:00 PM

 

When Pontius Pilate became a part of Jesus’ journey to the cross, he did not know, as a truth, that Jesus IS GOD AND MAN, yet one person.  But just the way Jesus had conducted himself when in his presence caused him to agonize over his fateful decision that sent an innocent “MAN” to Calvary.  Save this date as an opportunity to see this portrayed through drama, Pastor Kenny’s message, and the praise music of JC Reigns.

JC Reigns leads worship with both modern Christian songs and a selection of old church hymns – the aim is to meet the needs of all who attend. JC Reigns has been together for 14 years and over the course of that time, has recorded five Christian CDs and used all the proceeds to benefit world wide and local charities.

Whether you are a new Christian, or have been following Christ for years, this is just a wonderful way to gather in fellowship, sing songs to God and listen to your brothers and sisters as they share their faith. We invite you to come and bring a friend, meet other Pender People and leave with a song on your heart and the Son in your eyes.
