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.

Time: Second Sunday, from 06/09/2019 to 12/08/20193:00 PM – 5:00 PM

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

Pender Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2019

Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth

 

2019 VBS THEME

Imagine leaving a life of privilege and power to face angry mobs, painful imprisonment, and chain-breaking earthquakes—all to spread the life-changing truth of God’s love. Learn the jaw-dropping story of the Apostle Paul…straight from Paul himself! In an ancient “anything goes” culture, Paul will inspire kids to share the truth of God’s immeasurable love in the 2019 Holy Land Adventure Vacation Bible School.

 

NEW SCHEDULE

This year, we’re mixing it up and trying a new type of VBS schedule – Sunday afternoons from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m., with a family dinner to follow each week.  Your child will experience four (4) rotations each Sunday, including Craft, Music, Recreation, and Story Telling/Bible Lesson along with an Opening Rally Kick Off each week. VBS will be held on these four consecutive Sundays:

 

  • July 28, 2019
  • August 4, 2019
  • August 11, 2019
  • August 18, 2019

 

VBS will be open to Pre-K (potty-trained ages 3 & 4), and children who will be rising Kindergarten to 6thGrades in the 2019-2020 school year.

Cost:
VBS is $30 per child (third child’s registration is FREE).

Pender UMC does offer scholarships to families in need, please contact Adrienne Teague (teaguiea7@yahoo.com) for more information.
