New Sermon Series: Being A Good Steward

Series: Being A Good Steward

Nov. 10 – Sermon 51 – The Good Steward – Luke 16:2

We are called to be stewards. A steward is one who does not own what he/she has but is one who cares for what the Master has entrusted to him/her. How are you doing with what God has given you of His resources? You do know there is an accounting for all stewards don’t you?

Nov. 17 – It Takes A Village – 2 Corinthians 8:1-7

The work of the Kingdom is not what one person does but what we all do together. The church at Corinth knew that individually the task and the need before them was to big for anyone to make a real difference. It took ALL of them. You are a part of the VILLAGE. Together we can do the great things of God

Nov. 24 – What A Difference ONE can Make – John 6:1-13

I am ONE but I am ONE. One person purposed in their heart with the passion of God can change the world. One gift made out of gratitude multiplies when placed in the Savior’s hands. One small amount can feed the world. What is your part in making a difference?

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”).

World Communion Sunday, October 6, 2013

world-communion

World Communion Sunday offers us an opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith.

The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church.

On that day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers.

Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations. World Communion Sunday can be both a profound worship experience and a time for learning more about our wider community of faith.

Come, celebrate at Pender this Sunday at 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 AM
