Just In Time For Christmas

From RevKev, Pender’s Former Associate Pastor – “As it was, so it is, Christmas about Jesus. We are all distracted by the glitz and festivities, but let us hear the sound of Angels and the call to worship our Newborn King.

Just in time for Christmas, a gift from God to you: A baby in a manger who would love us through and through..”

Sunday November 29 Is the Beginning of Advent

Advent

Sunday, November 29, 2020  is the First Sunday in Advent.

The first Candle of the Advent Wreath is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, on November 29 this year. It is called the Prophecy Candle and reminds us that Jesus’ coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. The candle’s purple color represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings.

Suggested Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38

Chuck Knows Church — ADVENT WREATH. Four candles in a circle with a big one in the middle? Yep, take a moment and learn the basics about the advent wreath. And why is the pink candle…pink?

ONE Table Sunday, September 1 at 10am

 

One Table

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.

Rev. Lloyd Rollins will preach on What’s In The Story? based on scriptures Jeremiah 29:11 and Matthew 7:7.

The story aspect of the Gospel. Jesus chose to use stories as the primary tool for teaching – the Parables. We will look at our own story to discover whether our story is within the Gospel characteristics or something else. Could be a reason to come and see.

Pentecost is Sunday, June 9, 2019

pentecost320-crop

Pentecost is a Christian holy day that celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit 40 days after Easter. Some Christian denominations consider it the birthday of the Christian church and celebrate it as such.

Originally, Pentecost was a Jewish holiday held 50 days after Passover. One of three major feasts during the Jewish year, it celebrated Thanksgiving for harvested crops. However, Pentecost for Christians means something far different.

Before Jesus was crucified, he told his disciples that the Holy Spirit would come after him:

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:16–18

And 40 days after Jesus was resurrected (10 days after he ascended into heaven), that promise was fulfilled when Peter and the early Church were in Jerusalem for Pentecost.
