Sermon Series “The Shack” Begins Today

the-shack-feature

 

Please join us this Sunday, March 5, 2017, at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am Worship Services.

 

Is it possible to heal from unbearable loss?

The powerful story of THE SHACK movie will connect with you-whether you are searching for faith or lost it somewhere along the way. And for everyone who is hurting and knows what it is like to lose someone, THE SHACK film offers a message of real-life hope.

Starting Sunday, March 5, Pender is hosting a five-week sermon series using Scriptures and video clips from the film to help you trust God more completely, connect with Him in a deeper way and experience life-changing love and forgiveness even in the midst of pain.

3/5/17

Advent Devotional Materials

advent-feature

 

Recommended Advent Devotional Materials from Pastor Dan:

  • Top recommendation is written by JD Walt, “Sower-in-Chief” at Seedbed, which is the publishing arm of Asbury Seminary. You can find more details by clicking on this link.
  • If you use the Bible app from You version (available on App and Play stores), go to “Plans,” then in the search box, type in “Advent”. Many available plans should come up. One Pastor Dan recommends that he’s used before is “Rediscovering the Christmas Season” from Life.Church.
  • There is another online devotional called d365, found here. It’s a bit more focused toward youth and young adults, sometimes more obviously so than others. As the season turns to Advent, he expects their devotions will take up the theme as well.
  • Another resource Pastor Dan turned to many years is a book called, “Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Christmas Sermons.” It begins with some of his Advent thoughts and turns to Christmas. If you search for your favorite theologian, or preacher, they might have a similar volume.

Be sure to invite a friend during this Advent/Christmas season as we celebrate “Christmas at the Movies!” Check out the bulletin, weekly email, and cards in the pew racks in the sanctuary for the many events at Pender in the weeks to come as we celebrate Messiah’s incarnation and second coming!

Grace and peace, from Pastor Dan!

Please join us at our 8:15, 9:30, & 11:00 Services as Pastor Kenny and Pastor Dan continue their new sermon series entitled, “Heaven is for Real” and will be preaching on “The Battle for Heaven.” (Colossians 3:1-4)

Did you know that heaven is not guaranteed? In fact, we believe there are forces at work to knock us off our path and keep us from our intended destination. This is serious business, but victory can be ours! Make sure you’re among the victorious and join us today.
