Easter and Lilies

EASTER LILIES AND THE RESURRECTION. Does your church fill up its chancel area with Lilies on Easter? And what do lilies and Easter have in common?

Chuck’s Easter message with a smile.

Pender UMW Fall Retreat 2013


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.

Pender Music Camp 2013


Pender Music Camp 2013

Imagine sixty kids singing and playing music to the Lord. What a glorious sound it would be, right? This is the ministry of Music Camp… to give children a chance to see how fun using music to praise the Lord can be! Like Vacation Bible School, which is held the same week in the mornings, this venue encourages the participation of children in a week-long camp format.

Music Ministry staff and volunteers work together each year to organize and orchestrate a summer music camp.  It’s an opportunity for students and parents alike to experience the joy of praising God through music. Musical experience is not necessary to participate!

At Pender’s Music Camp, rising second through sixth graders sing in choir, play Orff instruments, ring handbells, experiment with rhythm in a percussion class, learn to read music, and make crafts. Older youth are always welcome to help out as teaching assistants.

Friday afternoon traditionally concludes with a musical performance, complete with costumes and choreography, which our campers perform for friends and family!

From Monday, July 8 at 12:30pm to Friday, July 12, 2013 at 3:30pm  

 Sign up here starting May 1, 2013

Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ May 5

Sing "N Celebrate




At our May SNC, you will hear from two Pender members how they discovered who they are in Christ —-how they were changed from the inside out.

Plan to join us as we hear how they learned to live each day guided by the Holy Spirit.
