Can you count? We need Counters!
The counting committee is in need of counters to help count the offerings for all three services.
Counters must be a member of Pender United Methodist Church. All counters must be at least a senior in high school and be proficient in EXCEL.
Counters will be placed on teams of three (no related members on any team). Counter teams should not have to count more than once every two months or possibly less. Counters start counting each Sunday following the 8:15 service at 9:15 and continue to count the Common Ground Service, Sunday school and the 11:00 am service. Counters are usually finished by the time the 11:00 service lets out. Counters will be limited to a three-year term when signing up. The Finance Committee must approve all counters.
If you are interested in signing up, please contact Sue Pierce by clicking on this link.
Do you love babies & toddlers? We need Nursery Workers!
At Pender, we provide a Nursery where infants and toddlers (newborns through age 4) are cared for in a safe and caring Christian environment.
We are in need of new servants to help staff the Nursery during Sunday Services and other events. Would you prayerfully consider serving as a Nursery Worker?

Since Jan 2012 our ministry has undergone many new changes. Not only do we knit, we now have people who crochet, cross-stitch and do other needlecrafts to support our ministry. These changes allow our ministry to meet the goals and projects of our church, both on going and new ones for each of us. We continue to bring together members of our church and others who wish to learn or have experience knitting and crocheting or any other hand crafts which benefit our church family and neighbors.
Our projects have included creating chemo hats for the local cancer treatment center, confirmation crosses, baby blankets for both our new babies born to church family members as well as donations to local hospitals. We also furnish the Healing Services with cross-stitched crosses for our Pastors to distribute during this service. During the churches semi-annual Flea Market, our ministry has a table set up in the Boutique area next to the Jewelry table where we have many different items for sale.
Our main on-going project is to provide prayer shawls for those who are experiencing distress or going through a difficult time and need reminding of how much God loves them. Each shawl is prayed over by our members, our church members and our Pastors.
We meet for fellowship each Thursday evening at 6:30 in room 200. We have on-going classes, both knitting and crocheting, during this time as well. This gives newcomers or beginners the opportunity to learn with those who have experience. Our beginning class created many beauty crocheted baby blankets this past year. All levels of skill are welcome to join us and if you find you cannot make it, you are encouraged to continue to work at home. You can choose which project you want to participate in as your time schedule permits. We understand if you can’t and love it when you can.
