Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie)

Pan Am Flight 103 Memorial Cairn

Pan Am Flight 103 Memorial Cairn

On December 21 at 1:30PM, the Pender UMC Choir traditionally sings for the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie) Memorial Service at Arlington National Cemetery.

One of the songs we traditionally sing at this service – “Under His Wings” – was composed in memory of the victims.  It can be heard in the videos below.

A few years ago was the 25th anniversary of the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing. A C-Span video of the anniversary event

Sunday Is the Beginning of Advent

Advent

Sunday, December 3, 2017  is the First Sunday in Advent.

The first Candle of the Advent Wreath is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, on December 3 this year. It is called the Prophecy Candle and reminds us that Jesus’ coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. The candle’s purple color represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings.

Suggested Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38

Chuck Knows Church — ADVENT WREATH. Four candles in a circle with a big one in the middle? Yep, take a moment and learn the basics about the advent wreath. And why is the pink candle…pink?

Remember to Change your Clock Tonight!

fall-back-feature

 

Daylight Saving Time 2017 ends for the year so the clock change for the fall takes place this morning at 2 a.m. Daylight Saving Time 2017 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 at Pender UMC ~ October 15, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11am Worship Services.

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:
