Today at Pender UMC ~ Sunday, June 21st

father

Please join us this Sunday, June 21, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.

Sermon Series:  STORIES          

June 21 – Annual Conference Sunday. “Father Knows Best”

Using Romans 8:18-25 as a base, we will take a closer look at the significance of Father’s Day from a variety of perspectives – most importantly, God’s.  Thom Jones will be preaching at 8:15 and 11:00am

9:30 Contemporary Service: Our very own Angie Green will be preaching at our 9:30 service on Joshua 1:6-9:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

What is the Annual Conference?

An Annual Conference is a regional body that governs much of the life of the “Connectional Church.” Sound confusing? We agree. Chuck will try to make sense of “Annual Conferences” when he makes a conference call.
