Today at Pender UMC ~ November 12, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 am worship services. We will bring to a conclusion the three week series on the Three Simple Rules of our founder John Wesley. These are rules which call forth the best in each of us, and challenge us to be Jesus’ disciples every day. The key to our success is in the third rule: Stay in Love with God. (Mark 12:28-34)
We also will begin to receive our Pledge Cards for your financial stewardship commitments.
Also today:
The United Methodist Women will host a Fair Trade Market after the 11am service (during the Chicken-Chili lunch) in the fellowship room and fellowship hall. The vendors will sell fair trade goods, including: food, clothing, accessories, household goods, decorations, etc. Please come peruse the merchandise and know that anything you purchase has helped to better the life of someone in a less fortunate situation than ours.
Fair trade means workers in developing countries are paid a living wage. Some of the proceeds will go to the Pender UMW for our mission work and UMCOR. Thanks for your support and happy shopping!

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:
