Today at Pender UMC ~ October 15, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11am Worship Services.
Pastor Dan will be preaching his final sermon in his series based on our church-wide study, “Solve: Finding God’s Solutions in a World of Problems” entitled ” The Beauty of Name-Dropping” (Nehemiah 3:1-5).

Last week’s sermon:

Flea Market and Boutique Set Up Begins today.

Enjoy a BBQ luncheon (provided by the UMW) immediately following the 11am service and then help us get a start on all of the set up and unpacking of boxes!
Our Pender men will return from their retreat later in the day, so we really need as many hands on deck as possible to make this happen! Please remember, these are the biggest fundraisers for the UMW and UMM and allow us to raise all of our budget for missions throughout the year!
Of course we will continue to need help throughout the week with getting everything in its place, so consider helping then as well or you can be a cashier during the event.
We would also love to have extra bakers for our women’s bake sale. Donations for the flea market will be accepted beginning this Sunday through Wednesday.
We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please contact our leaders below:

It’s Time to Update the Church Calendar!

calendar

 

Pender Members can add your own events to the church calendar now (no paper!).  Information is at http://www.penderumc.org/guidelines

It’s time to update the church calendar with all activities for the 2017 – 2018 school year!

Our calendar shows up in many places – our website, the Church Life app, screens in the church lobbies & the Sunday bulletins.

Many people rely on it; therefore it’s important that it be comprehensive, up to date and correct.

Activities include all church functions – whether they occur at the church or offsite.

Meetings, Bible studies, small groups, retreats, rehearsals, etc.

Calendar activities are for one year only *September to August) and should be re-submitted annually.

If you’re not a Pender member, click on this link for the RESOURCE REQUEST FORM. Fill it out and drop it off in the church office or scan it and send it by email to church.calendar@penderumc.org.

If you have any questions, call the church office at (703) 278-8023.
