honoring-heroes-feature

November 8th at 5-6pm in the Fellowship Hall

We have been glad to hear that our new earlier hour of meeting is very popular! This upcoming SNC will give all of us the opportunity to express our appreciation for our members of the military.

We not only are inviting all Pender military members to attend this service, but we will also have the privilege of hearing two members of the military share about their experiences in serving our country.

In addition, Kay Creel of Pender’s Military Ministry will present some scarves and lap afghans knitted by our Prayer Shawl Ministry, which will be blessed by Pastor Kenny before being sent to deserving members of the military.

Prayer Shawl Ministry News

prayer-shawl-feature

 

prayer-shawl1The Prayer Shawl Ministry (formerly Casting God’s Love) has been busy!

Here is a picture of a recently completed lapghan, held by Mary Ann Hinkle and Betty Kelly.

Someone donated several of the squares to the Prayer Shawl Ministry.  Mary Ann Hinkle finished the rest of the squares and sewed them together.

It is very warm and will make a wonderful gift to someone needing comfort.

 


In addition, the picture below shows a triangle shawl created by Ruth Haynie and modeled by Sue Pierce.  This shawl has already been delivered and is currently providing comfort and support.

If you would like to have your completed shawl shown on the website, please send your picture to Sue LeStrange at lestrangesue@gmail.com.

We continue to meet 6:30-7:30 PM each Wednesday this summer.  Join us!
