Today’s Bible Verse: Romans 13:6-7

taxes

 

Romans 13:6-7 New International Version (NIV)

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Today at Pender UMC ~ October 18, 2015

disciples-path

 

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, October 18th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will continue our sermon series based on our church-wide study, “A Disciple’s Path,” and will be preaching at all 3 services on “The Story in Your Own Words” (John 1:35-49)

For many people, the term evangelism has a bad reputation because of the way it has been abused by mean-spirited preachers and manipulative politicians. Others are intimidated by the idea of sharing their faith. Some suggest that faith in Christ is a private affair, not to be shared with others. In spite of our hesitations, the New Testament is clear that we are called to share with others the good news of what God has done in Christ. How do we do that? Join us and find out.

disciples-path

 

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, October 11th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Kenny & Pastor Dan will continue our sermon series based on our church-wide study, “A Disciple’s Path” and will be preaching on “The Way of Service” (Ephesians 4:1-16).

Servanthood — the practice by which the love of God becomes a tangible reality in our lives and through which we become active participants in God’s transformation of the world. Each of us has a role in the body of Christ, the church. Each of us has been called and gifted. We’ll explore how God has gifted you, where your heart has been broken, and where you are called to serve.

Counters Needed!

counters

Do you like to count money and operate a spreadsheet? Do you have the gift of administration? If so, we can use your help on Sunday mornings counting our worship offerings and making sure they get securely deposited in the bank. 

The counting committee is in need of counters to help on Sunday mornings.

  • Counters are placed on teams of 3 people (with no related people on a team)
  • Each team is scheduled to count about once every 2 months.
  • The teams count offerings for all 3 services, and Sunday School, on their scheduled Sunday.
  • They normally start following the 8:15 service, and continue to count after Common Ground and the 11:00 services.
  • Teams are usually done by the time the 11:00 service lets out.

To be a counter, one must be a member of Pender UMC, at least a senior in high school and be proficient in Excel. Counters will be limited to a 3 year term. The Finance Committee must approve all counters.

If you are interested, please contact Sue Pierce by clicking here.
