Today at Pender UMC ~ February 5, 2017

05 Feb

Please join us today, February 5th, at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Worship Services.


At our 8:15 & 11:00 Services, Pastor Kenny begins a new sermon series entitled “Coming to Terms with the Story – Parables of Jesus.” All of us love a good story. Jesus loved a good story and told them as parables.

For the next 4 weeks we will see what the stories really say and come face to face with Jesus’ story. The sermon title for this Sunday is“What Have You Done with the Story?” (Mark 4:1-20)


At our 9:30 service, Pastor Dan begins a new sermon series entitled “#Lifehacks” and his message this Sunday is entitled “Who Do You Love?” (Matthew 5:43-48)

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

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

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