At our 8:15 & 11:00 worship services on Sunday, August 31st, we return to a part of our heritage as Methodists, the Campmeeting. It will be a time to sing the old hymns, enjoy the upbeat worship and hear a sermon series based on the importance of “Revival.”
Suzanne Spencer retired as a UMC pastor after serving three churches on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. God called her into pulpit ministry late in life after a career as a social gerontologist, doing clinical research in geriatric medicine and managing assisted living facilities in the Richmond area. Her association with Pender began with a trip to Greece and Turkey led by Pastor Kenny and has continued on short-term mission trips to Peru. Her sermon title for Sunday is “Who?” (Matthew 16:21-26)
