Christmas Eve at Pender UMC

‘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

“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.'” ~Luke 2:10-11

Today at Pender UMC ~ December 13, 2015

under-wraps-feature

Join us this Sunday, December 13th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11am worship services. Pastor Kenny & Pastor Dan will continue our sermon series,“Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected” and will be preaching on“God is Dangerous & Jealous”(Matthew 2:1-3)

God’s mighty power brings danger. God is not tame. As C. S. Lewis writes in his book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, God is not “quite safe. . . but he’s good.” What does this mean? God also doesn’t tolerate competition. God wants the full attention of our hearts and minds. In a season filled with many distractions like shopping and parties, what would it mean to give our good God our full devotion?
