Did you know John Wesley had two birthdates?

Wesley was born on June 17, 1703, while England was using the Julian calendar.

When they adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752, Wesley’s birth date became June 28.

John Wesley Quote

wesley-dream

 

 

“Never dream of forcing men into the ways of God. Think yourself, and let think. Use no constraint in matters of religion. Even those who are farthest out of the way never compel to come in by any other means than reason, truth, and love.”

~John Wesley (Sermon 37 “The Nature of Enthusiasm”).

September 8, 2013 Sermon: What’s Missing in CH__CH?

The scripture will be Mark 1:29-31. “As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew.  Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her.  So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.”

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)

 

Also on Sunday:

  • August 25: Backpack Blessing, all 3 services
  • August 25: Sunday School continues for the Summer Session.  Read the brochure
  • August 25: Blood Pressure Checks 9:15-9:45 and 12:00-12:30
  • August 25: Juvenile Detention Center.  More information
  • August 25: Book Lovers Club, 7:00PM
  • August 25: Turning Point Youth Group, 7:00PM

Pender UMW Fall Retreat 2013

making-a-difference

Pender UMW Fall Retreat 2013
“Making A Difference”

Please join us on Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 9:00 to 3:00 for the UMW Fall Women’s Retreat.   All women are welcome, so please invite your friends and family!

Our theme this year will be “Making A Difference,” and we will focus on how we can make a difference in the lives of others near and far.    We will be hearing from guest speakers from within Pender and from the local community about their experiences and about ministry opportunities.   We will spend time during the afternoon working onsite in small groups on mission projects.    Additionally, we will have several breakout discussions and fellowship activities focused on how the UMW can make a difference in our community.

Doors will open at 9:00 am for registration and a light breakfast.   The program will start at 9:30 and will last until approximately 3:00.  The registration fee is $10 per person to cover the cost of breakfast and lunch, payable on the morning of the event.

Please register online or at the sign up table in the narthex.   Childcare is available for the retreat if we are notified of the need in advance.

We look forward to seeing you in September!    Please contact  Ann Hines if you have questions.
