Sunday, September 8, At Pender

Sunday will be a busy day!

Taste and See That the Lord is Good

At our 8:15, 9:30 and 11 am services Thom Jones will preach on Taste and See That the Lord is Good based on scriptures Psalm 34:1-10 and Psalm 34:11-22

Psalms 34: This psalm from David contains both thanksgiving to God and instruction for all of us.

First, David praises God for the experience which he and others had realized of His goodness.

Secondly, he encourages all good people to trust in God and to seek Him.

The third thing he does is give good counsel to us all, as unto children, to take heed of sin, and to show awareness of our duty both to God and to our fellow man (and woman). Finally, David enforces this good counsel by showing God’s favour to the righteous and His displeasure against the wicked, in which he sets before us good and evil: the blessing and the curse.  As we sing the psalm, we are to give glory to God, but we are also ordered to teach and admonish ourselves and one another.  It’s a joyful lesson, in a humbling sort of way.

We hope to see you in church on Sunday.

campmeeting-featured

 

At our 8:15 & 11:00 worship services on Sunday, August 24th, we return to a part of our heritage as Methodists, the Campmeeting. It will be atime to sing the old hymns, enjoy the upbeat worship and hear a sermon series based on the importance of “Revival.”

Pastor Kenny will be preaching on “A Neglected Salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3-4)

The writer of Hebrews asks a simple question. “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” Have we neglected it? From what do we escape? Let’s see how great a salvation we have been given and claim it this week.

At our 9:30 Common Ground Worship Service, RevKev will continue his Sermon Series on “The Stories of Jesus.” His sermon this Sunday is entitled “Jesus, Light of the World”  (John 8:12-20)

Sunday at Pender ~ WOW!

wow-main

Please join us on Sunday, July 20th, as we continue our Sermon Series: WOW!

WOW: The Mystery and Majesty of God – Exodus 20:18-21

We have made Jesus such a friend that we have lost the mystery and majesty of God. Somehow God is so much a “good buddy” that we have failed to see his awesomeness and acknowledge that God is so great he is beyond our comprehension.

Let’s look at what it means to have a God hidden in mystery but visible in majesty.
