Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie)

Pan Am Flight 103 Memorial Cairn

Pan Am Flight 103 Memorial Cairn

On December 21 at 1:30PM, the Pender UMC Choir traditionally sings for the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie) Memorial Service at Arlington National Cemetery.

One of the songs we traditionally sing at this service – “Under His Wings” – was composed in memory of the victims.  It can be heard in the videos below.

A few years ago was the 25th anniversary of the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing. A C-Span video of the anniversary event

Sunday Is the Beginning of Advent

Advent

Sunday, December 3, 2017  is the First Sunday in Advent.

The first Candle of the Advent Wreath is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, on December 3 this year. It is called the Prophecy Candle and reminds us that Jesus’ coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. The candle’s purple color represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings.

Suggested Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38

Chuck Knows Church — ADVENT WREATH. Four candles in a circle with a big one in the middle? Yep, take a moment and learn the basics about the advent wreath. And why is the pink candle…pink?

Today at Pender UMC ~ November 12, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 am worship services. We will bring to a conclusion the three week series on the Three Simple Rules of our founder John Wesley. These are rules which call forth the best in each of us, and challenge us to be Jesus’ disciples every day. The key to our success is in the third rule: Stay in Love with God. (Mark 12:28-34)
We also will begin to receive our Pledge Cards for your financial stewardship commitments.
Also today:
The United Methodist Women will host a Fair Trade Market after the 11am service (during the Chicken-Chili lunch) in the fellowship room and fellowship hall. The vendors will sell fair trade goods, including: food, clothing, accessories, household goods, decorations, etc. Please come peruse the merchandise and know that anything you purchase has helped to better the life of someone in a less fortunate situation than ours.
Fair trade means workers in developing countries are paid a living wage. Some of the proceeds will go to the Pender UMW for our mission work and UMCOR. Thanks for your support and happy shopping!

JLU (Jesus Loves You)
Youth Group for 4th-6th Graders
JLU (Jesus Loves You) Pender’s Junior Youth Group for grades 4 – 6 meets this Sunday, November 12th, from 5 – 7pm in the Cornerstone Room (Room 215). We will continue our study of places in the Bible.

Remember to Change your Clock Tonight!

fall-back-feature

 

Daylight Saving Time 2017 ends for the year so the clock change for the fall takes place this morning at 2 a.m. Daylight Saving Time 2017 seems overdue, but it is the same time each year.

The clock changes on the first Sunday in November. Daylight Saving Time starts on the second Sunday in March each year.

And, time to sing again…

Today at Pender UMC ~ October 15, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11am Worship Services.
Pastor Dan will be preaching his final sermon in his series based on our church-wide study, “Solve: Finding God’s Solutions in a World of Problems” entitled ” The Beauty of Name-Dropping” (Nehemiah 3:1-5).

Last week’s sermon:

Flea Market and Boutique Set Up Begins today.

Enjoy a BBQ luncheon (provided by the UMW) immediately following the 11am service and then help us get a start on all of the set up and unpacking of boxes!
Our Pender men will return from their retreat later in the day, so we really need as many hands on deck as possible to make this happen! Please remember, these are the biggest fundraisers for the UMW and UMM and allow us to raise all of our budget for missions throughout the year!
Of course we will continue to need help throughout the week with getting everything in its place, so consider helping then as well or you can be a cashier during the event.
We would also love to have extra bakers for our women’s bake sale. Donations for the flea market will be accepted beginning this Sunday through Wednesday.
We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please contact our leaders below:

 

WFCM’s Current Request for Donations:
