Who’s to Say?

 

At our One Table service, July 7 at 10 am Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest will preach on Who’s to Say? based on scriptures John 5:1-10,16 and  Acts 3:1-10.

Ever wonder if you were good enough?  Ever wonder what you have to do to be included as one of the ‘cool kids.’ Does the bar seem to high – the rules to complex?

Who’s to Say?

See you Sunday.

This service will be available on Pender’s website, our YouTube channel and in our Podcast

Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2019 Registration is OPEN

 

Pender Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2019

Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth

 

2019 VBS THEME

Imagine leaving a life of privilege and power to face angry mobs, painful imprisonment, and chain-breaking earthquakes—all to spread the life-changing truth of God’s love. Learn the jaw-dropping story of the Apostle Paul…straight from Paul himself! In an ancient “anything goes” culture, Paul will inspire kids to share the truth of God’s immeasurable love in the 2019 Holy Land Adventure Vacation Bible School.

 

NEW SCHEDULE

This year, we’re mixing it up and trying a new type of VBS schedule – Sunday afternoons from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m., with a family dinner to follow each week.  Your child will experience four (4) rotations each Sunday, including Craft, Music, Recreation, and Story Telling/Bible Lesson along with an Opening Rally Kick Off each week. VBS will be held on these four consecutive Sundays:

 

  • July 28, 2019
  • August 4, 2019
  • August 11, 2019
  • August 18, 2019

 

VBS will be open to Pre-K (potty-trained ages 3 & 4), and children who will be rising Kindergarten to 6thGrades in the 2019-2020 school year.

Cost:
VBS is $30 per child (third child’s registration is FREE).

Pender UMC does offer scholarships to families in need, please contact Adrienne Teague (teaguiea7@yahoo.com) for more information.

Click here to register.

Deadline to register is July 21 (or until classes are full).
