our-vision

 

Please join us today Sunday, May 22nd, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11am Services. Pastor Kenny will be preaching at all 3 services on “Our Vision” (Matthew 28:16-20).

The Great Commission

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20)

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

By following Jesus and reaching out to others, we seek God’s transformation of ourselves and our world.

Listen to 286 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.

Join our New Study — Messy Spirituality!

messy
Our 11am Adult Sunday School Class will be starting a new study on Sunday, May 22, on the book entitled “Messy Spirituality” by Mike Yaconelli.

“Messy Spirituality” is a strong antidote for the spiritual perfectionism in us all. Here are truths that can cut you loose from the tyranny of ought-to’s and open your eyes to the deep spirituality of being loved, shortcomings and all, by the God who meets you and transforms you in the midst of a messy and unpredictable life.

If interested please contact Colin or Allison Tucker by clicking on this link, or the church office. Child care is provided!
