Celebration of Advent – TONIGHT!

sing-celebrate-text-header

Sing ‘n Celebrate, Tonight at 7pm

Now is a good time to reserve the evening of December 7 for Sing ‘NCelebrate’s time for Celebration of Advent.

Our drama will set the scene and the theme for this time of worship — reminding us of how totally gracious Mary was when first viewing the rustic surroundings where her baby would be born. We will also be reminded that God’s timing for everything, even the birth of His Son, Jesus, is always perfect!

Sing ‘n Celebrate is Pender Church’s informal evening worship service that has a focus on contemporary Christian music and original dramas and testimonies. Dress is casual and the atmosphere offers a wonderful means to start the week with God in mind.

In addition to music and testimonies, prayer is offered. Communion is served periodically.

JC Reigns leads worship with both modern Christian songs and a selection of old church hymns – the aim is to meet the needs of all who attend. JC Reigns has been together for 14 years and over the course of that time, has recorded five Christian CDs and used all the proceeds to benefit world wide and local charities.

Whether you are a new Christian, or have been following Christ for years, this is just a wonderful way to gather in fellowship, sing songs to God and listen to your brothers and sisters as they share their faith. We invite you to come and bring a friend, meet other Pender People and leave with a song on your heart and the Son in your eyes.
