Graduation Sunday ~ June 12, 2016

12 Jun



This Sunday, June 12th, is Graduation Sunday. We will be honoring all of our high school and college graduates during our 11:00 am service. (All graduates are encouraged to wear their cap and gowns!)

At our 8:15 and 11:00 am Services, Pastor Kenny will be preaching on “Staying Positive in a Negative World” (Romans 12:1-2); and Pastor Dan will also be preaching on the same sermon title and scripture at the 9:30 Service.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:1-2)

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

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

Listen to 289 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.
