Disciple Fast Track

disciple-fast-track

 

For nearly thirty years, the original Disciple Bible Study has helped millions of people read through the Bible and grow their faith through a 34-week class. 

The new Disciple Fast Track study leads groups through the Bible in 24 weeks-12 on the Old Testament and 12 on the New Testament. Study manuals and videos give participants tools to absorb and retain what they learn about the Bible. 

Our church is now forming a Disciple Fast Track group to go through the study together. Pastor Dan will be leading. We will meet Wednesday evenings, 7:00pm.

 

Main Features of Disciple Fast Track:

· Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks

– 12 Weeks Old Testament (August 31 – November 16)

– 12 Weeks New Testament (January 4 – March 22 +/- for inclement weather)

· Each group session lasts 75 minutes

·Daily scripture & workbook readings.

· 24 weekly illustrated whiteboard review videos

We’re going to have a Barrel of Fun!

barrelCan you help us decorate for Vacation Bible School?

We have a special request for wooden barrels (we will return them after the week of July 8-12th).

If you have a barrel we can use, please contact Jami Flemmons by clicking on this link.

~~~

Pender’s 2013 summer Vacation Bible School will be held July 8-12, from 9-12 each morning.

Our theme this year will be Gospel Light’s SonWest Roundup.  Kids will “travel down the trail through the Old Testament stories of Moses to discover God’s ultimate plan of salvation in Jesus.”

The Bible verse for the week will be Hebrews 13:8 –  “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

VBS is open to Cowboys and Cowgirls ages 3 through 6th grade (children MUST be potty trained – teachers will NOT change diapers).

Registration fees for 2013 will be $20 per child, $40 maximum per family and can be paid on the first day of VBS.

**REGISTRATION IS CLOSED**

We’re sorry, but our “ranch” has reached capacity and to ensure the safety of all our Cowboys and Cowgirls we have closed registration for this year’s VBS.

If you would like to place your child’s name on the waiting list, please email Jami Flemmons.  Please include your child’s name, age and grade for Fall 2013.

We are still in need of Deputies and Ranch Hands to assist with VBS!   If you would like to help or have questions, please contact Jami Flemmons

Sunday School at Pender


Adult Christian Education happens in a variety of ways, but Sunday School classes and Bible studies are the most frequent methods at Pender.  It takes an entire lifetime (and more) to know God; therefore, a variety of adult learning activities is offered year-round on Sunday mornings as well as during the week.  All classes study scripture with differing topics and study styles.  Study topics vary from the basics of the Christian faith, to a particular book of the Bible, and to Biblical principles for marriage and parenting.  Study styles differ in the amount of pre-class preparation, teacher presentation, or group presentation.  Adults are invited to visit all classes and find the study that meets their needs.  The Grow in God Cluster always welcomes suggestions for new classes.

9:30 AM SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES FOR ADULTS

Bethany uses the International SS Lesson series as their curriculum. Lessons alternate on a quarterly basis between the Old and New Testaments. This class meets in room 200 next to the Fellowship Room.  The teacher is Kay Matthias.

Cornerstone is led by rotating facilitators who guide discussions about Old and New Testament books and topics. Since this is a large class, the members support each other by sharing prayers and praise each week and enjoying regular socials. They meet in rooms 215 and 217.

Genesis to Revelation is a verse-by-verse Bible study that will enable you to understand what the Bible says, what the passage means, and how the Scripture applies to your life today.  The study uses the Standard Publishing International Lesson Series plus other sources. They meet in room 218 & 220.  The teacher is Rich Taddeo.

New Directions uses a variety of curriculum resources for topical studies. They usually participate in Pender church-wide studies. Rotating facilitators guide the weekly discussions.  This group meets in room 206.

Seekers study Biblically-based topics which are discussed in a free format as opposed to lectures. The study books used are Inter-Varsity Press publications in the Lifeguide Bible Studies series. Topics are selected by class members and emphasize strengthening our faith for Christian living. Members are in all stages of faith and Biblical knowledge. This class periodically has social events in homes and  in local restaurants. This class meets in room 216.  Teachers are Stan and Dottie Kurzeja.

11:00 AM SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES FOR ADULTS

Work in Progress is open to anyone interested in discussing Biblical and timely topics, meeting new Pender folks, and sharing weekly joys and concerns.  They meet in room 218.

9:30 am Sunday School Classes for Children

Sunday School classes are structured and provided to children based on their age as of 9/30 or the school grade.
