Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebrating Children



Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebrating Children

Oct. 18 @ 5pm in the Fellowship Hall

Be sure to mark your calendar for this date, time and place, so we can show our appreciation for our Pender kids’ participation in “Growing in Grace” and our introduction / audition of our new, prospective band.

2 Peter 3:18 instructs us to “Grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever.”

Christmas Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ Dec. 2 at 7:00 pm

At this time of worship, we will have chance to consider the incredible challenges Mary and Joseph faced when they were learning that they would be earthly parents of God’s Son. Joseph’s respect for Mary’s character and the explanation she gave him, as well as her attitude toward the Expected Child, must have made it very difficult to think his bride had done something wrong.

Please mark your calendar for this evening, December 2 at 7:00PM,  when we will welcome to our Pender Stage Kerrie Barone and Daniel May for the first time.

Sing ‘N Celebrate is Pender UMC’s casual, evening service in which all of the music is praise music led by our worship leader and praise band. We also feature short dramas which lead into a short message. Those attending always have an opportunity to be involved in freely lifting up their individual prayers during our time of prayer.
