Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, November 8th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all 3 services on“More Than a Book Study” (John 15:9-17)

We just recently completed our church-wide study and message series called,“A Disciple’s Path,” in which we rediscovered our identity as followers of Jesus in the Wesleyan tradition. An important aspect of living out our faith together is what John Wesley called, “watching over one another in love.” How do we do that, especially today in the 21st century?

Today at Pender UMC ~ November 1, 2015

november-sermons-feature

Please join us this Sunday, November 1, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services. 

November 1 – Note that this is the Sunday that the clocks turn backwards 1 hour. 

Who Do You Want to Be Like?      Revelation 21:1-8

When we were children, many of us had someone we wanted to be like when we grew up. “I wanna be like Mike,”sang the old Gatorade commercial, referencing the great basketball player, Michael Jordan. Did you know that as we grow up in faith, from baby Christians to mature believers, we can have spiritual role models as well? These are those we call saints; whose lives we might imitate as they followed Jesus. Come and hear about some ancient and modern day saints, and consider who you might want to be like.

Today at Pender UMC ~ October 18, 2015

disciples-path

 

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, October 18th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will continue our sermon series based on our church-wide study, “A Disciple’s Path,” and will be preaching at all 3 services on “The Story in Your Own Words” (John 1:35-49)

For many people, the term evangelism has a bad reputation because of the way it has been abused by mean-spirited preachers and manipulative politicians. Others are intimidated by the idea of sharing their faith. Some suggest that faith in Christ is a private affair, not to be shared with others. In spite of our hesitations, the New Testament is clear that we are called to share with others the good news of what God has done in Christ. How do we do that? Join us and find out.

Servanthood — the practice by which the love of God becomes a tangible reality in our lives and through which we become active participants in God’s transformation of the world. Each of us has a role in the body of Christ, the church. Each of us has been called and gifted.
