We have been glad to hear that our new earlier hour of meeting is very popular! This upcoming SNC will give all of us the opportunity to express our appreciation for our members of the military.

We not only are inviting all Pender military members to attend this service, but we will also have the privilege of hearing two members of the military share about their experiences in serving our country.

In addition, Kay Creel of Pender’s Military Ministry will present some scarves and lap afghans knitted by our Prayer Shawl Ministry, which will be blessed by Pastor Kenny before being sent to deserving members of the military.

Today at Pender UMC ~ November 8, 2015

november-sermons-feature

 

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, November 8th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all 3 services on“More Than a Book Study” (John 15:9-17)

We just recently completed our church-wide study and message series called,“A Disciple’s Path,” in which we rediscovered our identity as followers of Jesus in the Wesleyan tradition. An important aspect of living out our faith together is what John Wesley called, “watching over one another in love.” How do we do that, especially today in the 21st century?

For more information about our upcoming sermons, click here.

Listen to 250 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.

Thanks to all who graciously knitted and crocheted scarves for our deployed military service members.
