Today at Pender UMC ~ November 12, 2017
Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 am worship services. We will bring to a conclusion the three week series on the Three Simple Rules of our founder John Wesley. These are rules which call forth the best in each of us, and challenge us to be Jesus’ disciples every day. The key to our success is in the third rule: Stay in Love with God. (Mark 12:28-34)
We also will begin to receive our Pledge Cards for your financial stewardship commitments.
The United Methodist Women will host a Fair Trade Market after the 11am service (during the Chicken-Chili lunch) in the fellowship room and fellowship hall. The vendors will sell fair trade goods, including: food, clothing, accessories, household goods, decorations, etc. Please come peruse the merchandise and know that anything you purchase has helped to better the life of someone in a less fortunate situation than ours.
Fair trade means workers in developing countries are paid a living wage. Some of the proceeds will go to the Pender UMW for our mission work and UMCOR. Thanks for your support and happy shopping!

Pastor Dan expressed it like this… it is the Pender High Holy Week of the Flea Market and Boutique. Pender United Methodist Church turns itself inside out for this event.
We have furniture, household goods, electronics, clothing, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. We have sports equipment, toys, strollers, stuffed animals.
The Ladies knock themselves out for the bake sale, which includes (but is not limited to) snickerdoodles, lemon tarts, chocolate chip cookies, banana nut bread, pumpkin bread. Do you like brownies? Blondies? Brownies with icing, with m&ms, with sprinkles, or with peanut butter frosting? Gluten free items are also available.
The Men fire it up with the all American grill featuring burgers and dogs.
All proceeds are used for Christian missions. Pender UMC supports missionaries in over 100 countries, and has sent small mission teams to over a dozen countries. For example, one missionary supported by Pender’s mission committee is your own Maryann Weber, Director of Pender Regift Thrift Store.
After the sale, remaining material goods will be distributed to West Virginia and Honduras via other Methodist church partners.
