Sunday, February 22, at Pender UMC



Please join us this Sunday, February 22, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.


February 22 – Denying and Dying – Luke 9:23

            Denying is not a word our society uses much anymore.  Dying to self certainly isn’t the message of the TV preachers.  Yet Jesus says that we must do both to follow Him.  Denying  and Dying we enter into following Jesus.

Lent’s 40 days represent Jesus’ time in the wilderness, enduring temptation and preparing to begin his ministry.
