Pender will unite together in one worship service in the Sanctuary at 10am on the first Sundays of the month from now on.
We will continue to have all 3 services — 8:15am, 9:30am, 11am — throughout the other weeks of each summer month.
Our Christmas Offering this year will go to support 2 important ministries:
(1) Up to $4,000 will go to cover expenses of the Hypothermia Center that will take place at Pender January 3-10, 2015.
(2) The remainder will go to Holyland 4 Jesus – An outreach in Israel among Muslim people that establishes churches of new disciples of Christ. Outreach is done through music and the gifts of milk and rice to individual families. The gospel is shared with each gift.
Today’s Bible Verse
|Sermon Series ~ Campmeeting – LOST|
|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 25: The LOST Brother – Luke 15:25-32
We normally look at the lost as being those outside the church. But what about the lost brothers. Those within our fellowship and yet still are lost. How do we minister to them and what good news do we have for them? Let’s see this Sunday.
“And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.” (Luke 15:31)

Sermon on August 18: LOST Son – Luke 15:11-24
This parable is second only to the Good Samaritan in familiarity. It is because at one time or another we have all been there. People get lost as well. Most of the time it is our own choice. What happens when we are lost? How do we get home? Let’s see this Sunday.
“For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.” Luke 15:24
