2015 Church Conference

charge-conference2-feature

 

We are excited to share with you the results of our congregational vote this past Sunday morning! Both questions were approved with near unanimity. The results are as follows: 

For Resolution 1 – 207

Against Resolution 1 – 12

 

For Resolution 2 – 210

Against Resolution 2 – 9

We give thanks once again for the dedicated work of our Building Committee, chaired by Jeanne Osborne. Their work, as well as ours, is far from over, as now we will move to the phase of deciding on details, including the color of the carpet! The work of our financial team, led by Becky Bryan and Lloyd Rollins, will now formally begin as well. Stay tuned for more information, especially as the calendar turns to 2016. And most importantly, please keep all these plans and more in your prayers that we would be guided by the Holy Spirit in all that is before us.

As we turn toward thoughts of Thanksgiving, please know that our hearts are full of thanks to God for each of you, members and friends together of Pender United Methodist Church. Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving! We look forward to beginning the season of Advent with you in worship this coming Sunday.

Pastors Kenny and Dan

Today at Pender UMC ~ November 8, 2015

november-sermons-feature

 

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, November 8th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all 3 services on“More Than a Book Study” (John 15:9-17)

We just recently completed our church-wide study and message series called,“A Disciple’s Path,” in which we rediscovered our identity as followers of Jesus in the Wesleyan tradition. An important aspect of living out our faith together is what John Wesley called, “watching over one another in love.” How do we do that, especially today in the 21st century?
