Today is World Communion Sunday ~ October 1, 2017

world-communion

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 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 AM

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all 3 services and will continue his sermon series based on our church-wide study, “Solve: Finding God’s Solutions in a World of Problems.” This week’s sermon is entitled “Food Network Solutions (Nehemiah 5:1-19).

Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ Celebration of Children

sing-n-celeb-kids320

Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebration of Children at October 1 at 5:00

Save this date for your family’s opportunity to hear Pender kids sharing about the beautiful story of “Good Good Father” — which will leave your children with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him.

We read in Matthew 7:12 – “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you”, which is commonly known as the Golden Rule.

This statement, as Jesus formulated it, is the foundation of active goodness and mercy — the kind of love God shows to us every day.

We have a special opportunity next Sunday to be witness to our children and grandchildren demonstrating in words and acting this type of love.

The Pumpkins are Coming!

 

On October 6th at 4pm the pumpkin truck will arrive at Pender! We need all the help we can get to get the pumpkins off the truck and into our patch!
After that, we need volunteers to sit in the patch from 11am-7pm daily (except Sunday). Please consider taking a shift or many! Your time supports the Pender Turning Point Youth, the Navajo Indians in Arizona who grew our pumpkins and of course Tim.
Also…teenagers, if you need service hours, this counts!!
