Depression – Who, What and How – Sermon Sunday, July 14


NEW Sermon Series ~ Down in the Dumps

Sermon on Sunday,   July 14:

Depression – Who, What and How 

I Kings 19

depressionDepression is the epidemic that many are struggling with but few are talking about.  According to the latest reports, 1 out of every 3 Americans are dealing with depression.  What are the effects?  How do I deal with them?  Let’s see what Elijah learned about depression and what God can do about it.

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.” (1 Kings 19:11-12)


At 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 AM at Pender United Methodist Church

Race to Nowhere ~ Feb. 8th at 7:00 pm

Race to Nowhere

Turning Point Youth Ministry presents: Race to Nowhere

Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids.

Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

All parents and youth are invited to a showing of this movie on February 8th at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.

A small panel discussion will immediately follow the film.
