honoring-heroes-feature

November 8th at 5-6pm in the Fellowship Hall

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.

Thank you!

thank-you

 

 

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

What a blessing these will be to the service members who will receive them in holiday care packages (sent out via Operation Gratitude at the end of this month).
