Sunday at Pender UMC

this-week320

 

 

We return to a part of our heritage as Methodists, the Campmeeting.  It will be a time to sing the old hymns, enjoy the upbeat worship and hear the Gospel preached that will help those who are lost and wandering in our community.

Sermon on August 11:  LOST Coin – Luke 15:8-10

A lost coin can mean a lot or not anything at all these days.  Who stoops down to even retrieve a penny anymore?  Yet the coin mentioned here has GREAT worth.  What would you do to find it?  Let’s see what happens when we lose something because of carelessness. 

“And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’  In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

At 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00AM

December Sermon Series

Journey To Bethehem

New Series: JOURNEYING TO BETHLEHEM

Each Christmas is a journey! We make it from wherever we are to the manger. Mary and Joseph journeyed from Nazareth to Bethlehem on the First Christmas. What will our journey be like? Are there helps along the way? How do we really prepare to receive the King? Let’s see how we might journey together so that this Christmas we find the true reason for the season – the child Jesus!

Dec. 2 – Mary of Nazareth: Journey of Faith – Luke 1:26-38

Christmas is about miracles, love, giving, family, friends, presents. But the first Christmas didn’t have any of these but a miracle and love. For Mary Christmas was a surprise that required of her a lot of FAITH. How many of us would believe an angel? How could we even know what an angel is and looks like? And the message, a virgin will birth a baby? Now that does take FAITH! Let’s learn from Mary about how FAITH is needed and helps to bring about a holy Christmas for each of us.

Dec. 9 – Joseph of Bethlehem: Journey of Trust – Matt. 1:18-24

The Night Before Christmas says that the dreams were of “sugarplums that danced in their heads.” Don’t know about you but during the rush of Christmas my dreams are more nightmares and not sugarplums. For Joseph I think it was the same. Mary pregnant and it wasn’t his! His life over and dreams crushed! Now he is told “Don’t be afraid!” Trust is the word that Joseph had to learn so that there would be a Christmas. I wonder do we TRUST that Christmas is love, peace and hope? Do we put our trust in the one who does the Impossible at Christmas? Let’s see how we can Trust Christmas!

Dec. 16 – A Christmas Cantata “Night of the Father’s Love” will be sung at both of the traditional services! Come and enjoy this morning of music as we hear the Christmas story told through music! There will be a 50 voice choir, an orchestra and music you will not want to miss!

Dec. 23 – From Nazareth to Bethlehem – Journey to a Manger – Luke 2:1-7

You can’t have Christmas without Bethlehem’s manger. For in it we find the reason for the season-the Christ child! As you have moved from store to store, house to house, party to party have you come to a manger yet? It took Mary and Joseph a long time to make that 90 mile trek, how long will it take us? Let’s talk about where to find Jesus this Christmas. Without him we have nothing but X-mas!

Dec. 30 – Pastor Kevin is preaching

Jan. 6 – Still on the Journey – Matt. 2:1-18

Once Christmas is over is that the end? Or does the journey of Christmas continue as we seek the Christ child all year round? What ways can we seek Him? What will we do when we find Him? WE are ALL still journeying. Let’s begin at the Lord’s table on the first Sunday in a New Year!
