The Upper Room

Get your copy or The Upper Room at Pender UMC each month in regular or large print versions.

The Upper Room magazine’s mission is to provide a model of practical Christianity, accessible in varied formats, to help people feel invited and welcomed into God’s presence to:

  • listen to scripture as God’s personal message, linking their stories to God’s story;
  • commune with God in prayer;
  • see their daily choices and small acts of obedience as part of God’s work;
  • realize our connection through Christ as a universal family of believers;
  • encounter the living Christ and be transformed into Christ’s likeness.

From Chuck Knows Church.  The Upper Room. It’s the place where Jesus had his last meal with his disciples, but it’s also the world’s most widely read daily devotional guide. Chuck explains the significance of this “little book”.

Remember to Change your Clock Tonight!

fall-back-feature

Daylight Saving Time 2022 ends for the year so the clock change for the fall takes place in the morning at 2 a.m. Daylight Saving Time 2022 seems overdue, but it is the same time each year.

The clock changes on the first Sunday in November. Daylight Saving Time starts on the second Sunday in March each year.

And, time to sing again…

Today is World Communion Sunday ~ October 2, 2022

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.
