We’re going to have a Barrel of Fun!

barrelCan you help us decorate for Vacation Bible School?

We have a special request for wooden barrels (we will return them after the week of July 8-12th).

If you have a barrel we can use, please contact Jami Flemmons by clicking on this link.


Pender’s 2013 summer Vacation Bible School will be held July 8-12, from 9-12 each morning.

Our theme this year will be Gospel Light’s SonWest Roundup.  Kids will “travel down the trail through the Old Testament stories of Moses to discover God’s ultimate plan of salvation in Jesus.”

The Bible verse for the week will be Hebrews 13:8 –  “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

VBS is open to Cowboys and Cowgirls ages 3 through 6th grade (children MUST be potty trained – teachers will NOT change diapers).

Registration fees for 2013 will be $20 per child, $40 maximum per family and can be paid on the first day of VBS.


We’re sorry, but our “ranch” has reached capacity and to ensure the safety of all our Cowboys and Cowgirls we have closed registration for this year’s VBS.

If you would like to place your child’s name on the waiting list, please email Jami Flemmons.  Please include your child’s name, age and grade for Fall 2013.

We are still in need of Deputies and Ranch Hands to assist with VBS!   If you would like to help or have questions, please contact Jami Flemmons

Sunday, June 30th Sermon ~ The Debt of Love



There is only one debt for the follower of Christ.  It is the debt of love we owe.  Giving our love away isn’t a suggestion but a debt to be paid.  Let’s see how we are doing on the payment of love.

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.  The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”  (Romans 13:8-10)

At Pender UMC, 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00am
