‘Twas the night before Christmas…and the people were celebrating Jesus’ birthday!
You’re invited to spend your Christmas Eve at Pender UMC as we celebrate the birth of Jesus the Messiah, the Savior of the World, with candlelight, Christmas carols, and the incredible story of his arrival on Earth.
Pender’s children’s choirs will present their Christmas musical “The Legend of the Christmas King” at the 5:30 family service. Kid-friendly glow sticks will stand in for our candlelight!
The 7:30 and 11:00 p.m. services will include carols, candlelight, and a Christmas message from Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest.
All are welcome; come as you are! Learn more about all of Pender’s Christmas and December events online: http://www.penderumc.org/christmas2018
