Destined in Love

At our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am services on October 13, Guest Speaker Thom Jones will preach on “Destined in Love” based on scriptures Ephesians 1:3-10 and Ephesians 1:11-14.

The book of Ephesians hits on a wide range of moral and ethical behaviors, designed to ensure believers are living up their (our) heavenly calling. As we continue in our faith from day to day, month to month, and year to year, the temptation to get too comfortable will always exist. However, the Apostle Paul presented the gift of God in Christ and the benefits we receive so clearly that we cannot help but ask ourselves if our lives reflect that reality as they should.

How have you grown in your Christian life since you came to faith in Jesus Christ? The words in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians makes clear that spiritual growth occurs primarily in community with others – in other words: WE NEED YOU AT CHURCH.

Maturity yields benefits in believers’ moral lives, but it extends far beyond that as well. Increased maturity benefits the community at large, leading us to present a more consistent witness to the working of God in our lives as well as protecting us from the harmful divisions and quarrels that have plagued so many communities throughout history.

God so loved the world – He has destined us in love. Come to church; feel the love, and help spread His word.

We hope to see you in church on Sunday.

Today is World Communion Sunday ~ October 6, 2019

World Communion Sunday offers us an opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith.

The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church.

On that day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers.

Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations. World Communion Sunday can be both a profound worship experience and a time for learning more about our wider community of faith.

Come, celebrate at Pender today at our One Table service at 10:00 AM

Today will be Pastor Catharine’s Last Sunday with us as she will be retiring.

Sunday, September 8, At Pender

Sunday will be a busy day!

Taste and See That the Lord is Good

At our 8:15, 9:30 and 11 am services Thom Jones will preach on Taste and See That the Lord is Good based on scriptures Psalm 34:1-10 and Psalm 34:11-22

Psalms 34: This psalm from David contains both thanksgiving to God and instruction for all of us.

First, David praises God for the experience which he and others had realized of His goodness.

Secondly, he encourages all good people to trust in God and to seek Him.

The third thing he does is give good counsel to us all, as unto children, to take heed of sin, and to show awareness of our duty both to God and to our fellow man (and woman). Finally, David enforces this good counsel by showing God’s favour to the righteous and His displeasure against the wicked, in which he sets before us good and evil: the blessing and the curse.  As we sing the psalm, we are to give glory to God, but we are also ordered to teach and admonish ourselves and one another.  It’s a joyful lesson, in a humbling sort of way.

We hope to see you in church on Sunday.

ONE Table Sunday, September 1 at 10am

 

One Table

Pender will unite together in one worship service in the Sanctuary at 10am on the first Sundays of the month from now on.

We will continue to have all 3 services — 8:15am, 9:30am, 11am — throughout the other weeks of each summer month.

Rev. Lloyd Rollins will preach on What’s In The Story? based on scriptures Jeremiah 29:11 and Matthew 7:7.

The story aspect of the Gospel. Jesus chose to use stories as the primary tool for teaching – the Parables. We will look at our own story to discover whether our story is within the Gospel characteristics or something else. Could be a reason to come and see.

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
