Activities for Children at Pender UMC

Our goal is that all children will know and experience the love of God, and then extend that love to others.

Follow: We want those who are teaching and spending time with children at Pender to be followers of Jesus, who then teach children how to also be followers.

Reach: Our desire is for God to reach your child in a unique and meaningful way. This may come through some of our various Children’s Ministry events and activities, or through the loving community of Pender.

Transform: Ultimately, a relationship with Jesus changes lives. Living in the love that God has for us is a true gift and often times transforms the way in which we live.

In case you missed it:

Our second “Pender Talk” webinar was February 24, 2021.  Dr. K. Drew Baker told us about the difficulties children are facing during this pandemic.

He shared how to help children now, as well as how to help them get ready to go back to school face to face.

 

 

When we are COVID-free, Pender offers numerous activities for children of all ages:

Sunday worship (All ages!) – At Pender children are encouraged and invited to participate in worship at church.

Sunday School (newborn- 6th grade) – on Sunday morning, at 10:15, we offer Sunday school for children 2 years old through 6th grade. They are in classes with friends that are around the same age as them so they can learn more about God’s love together. We are currently using Orange Curriculum which is amazing! Their goal is to connect the church and family together to deepen the faith of children!

Sunday Morning Nursery– Babies up to 2 years old are welcome in the nursery during the 9:00 and the 11:15 am service. The nursery provides a warm and loving environment for the children. We also have a pager system to ensure safety and communication with parents. We also have the nursery open during other worship services that Pender offers.

Children’s Church– During the 9 :00 service we have a children’s message within the service specifically for kids! After this time of learning, children 2 years old through second grade are welcome to go downstairs for Children’s church.

Jesus Loves You (JLU) (4th – 6th graders) – On the second Sunday of every month JLU meets and has a time of fellowship, learning, and fun together! They meet from 5-7pm and learn more about God together.

Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ Celebration of Children

sing-n-celeb-kids320

Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebration of Children at October 1 at 5:00

Save this date for your family’s opportunity to hear Pender kids sharing about the beautiful story of “Good Good Father” — which will leave your children with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him.

We read in Matthew 7:12 – “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you”, which is commonly known as the Golden Rule.

This statement, as Jesus formulated it, is the foundation of active goodness and mercy — the kind of love God shows to us every day.

We have a special opportunity next Sunday to be witness to our children and grandchildren demonstrating in words and acting this type of love.
