Happy Mother’s Day!

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.  ~ Proverbs 31:26

 

Statistics say that 20.7 billion dollars will be spent on moms in honor of the U.S. holiday that falls on the second Sunday in May: Mother’s Day.  All that cash and commercialism goes against everything the women who originated the idea wanted.

In this video, meet the Methodist mother and daughter team who worked to create a day to honor a mother’s love and to emphasize how important a mother’s role is in building a peaceful world.

May 31 – Confirmation – Our Story To Tell – John 9:13-38

                                    The Blind man couldn’t explain all the details of what Jesus had done or how he had done it.  But he did know this, “I once was blind but now I can see.”  The stories we have to tell do not have to be elaborate or involved but simple tell what I know to be true because this is my experience with Jesus.  What is story you have to tell?

Today is Pentecost Sunday!

pentecost

 

Today is Pentecost Sunday! Bring a friend and join us at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.
Sermon Series: STORIES
Sermon Title for May 24 – Pentecost
The Power of Understanding A Story Acts 2:1-41
“Each one heard in his own language.” The true art of story telling is do people hear what you are really saying. The joy of sharing the stories of Jesus is that the Holy Spirit makes sure everyone hears. That is the reminder of Pentecost today, “Everyone can hear in his own language if we will only be used.

“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:4)

Today at Pender UMC ~ May 17, 2015

stories-header

 

Please join us this Sunday, May 17, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.

Sermon Series:  STORIES          

May 17 – HIS Story – Acts 4:1-20

                                    Stories always engage and captivate.  They have a power all their own.  Jesus’ story really carries a punch.  When told, it is so unbelievable that it makes you want to believe.  It causes you to believe.  It makes you into a believer.  Let’s learn from Peter and John and tell the story.

“But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:19-20)
