Don’t Forget to Spring Forward

Daylight Savings time begins again!

On Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 2:00:00 AM (or earlier!) clocks are turned forward 1 hour to become Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 3:00:00 AM

Daylight Savings Time is not just a way to annoy us when we want to sleep in on Sundays.  The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented during the First World War.

Although most of the United States used DST throughout the 1950s and 1960s, DST use expanded following the 1970s energy crisis and has generally remained in use in North America and Europe since that time.

Everybody sing along…

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?

For more information about our upcoming sermons, click here.

Listen to 250 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.

Today at Pender UMC ~ November 1, 2015

november-sermons-feature

Please join us this Sunday, November 1, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services. 

November 1 – Note that this is the Sunday that the clocks turn backwards 1 hour. 

Who Do You Want to Be Like?      Revelation 21:1-8

When we were children, many of us had someone we wanted to be like when we grew up. “I wanna be like Mike,”sang the old Gatorade commercial, referencing the great basketball player, Michael Jordan. Did you know that as we grow up in faith, from baby Christians to mature believers, we can have spiritual role models as well? These are those we call saints; whose lives we might imitate as they followed Jesus. Come and hear about some ancient and modern day saints, and consider who you might want to be like.
