Registration is Now Open!

 

Pender VBS, July 10-14, 9 am to noon 

Focus your telescopes! Galactic Starveyors reignites children’s sense of discovery and exploration as they marvel at the wonders of the starry sky. Most of all, they gaze toward the God who created the universe and everything in it learning that He wants to have a personal relationship with them! Come on into the clubhouse and show kids that God is over the moon in love with them!  Kids will rotate through music, recreation, snack, crafts and storytelling!

For ages 3 years (potty trained) through 6th grade.

Adults and 7th through 12th graders are welcome to volunteer.

Pender Music Camp, July 10-14, 12:30-3:30 pm

The theme for this summer’s  Pender UMC music camp will be “Star Quest.”   We will be exploring music that expresses the goodness of God’s creation, and tells of the truth of His word in the Bible.  Children will be rotating through handbell, Orff, drumming and craft classes.  In addition to these “out-of-this-world” classes, we will be preparing and presenting excerpts from the musical “Star Quest – The Search for the Stolen Scriptures.”  Join us this year as we blast off to fun and song!
For ages rising 2nd grade – rising 6th grade.  Registration is open now.
We are also seeking teens and adults who would like to be a part of our staff.

VBS 2016 Registration is Now Open!

vbs-2016

 

Prepare to embark on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. Thrilling discoveries await just beyond the portholes of your submarine. Things look very different once you get below the surface – and that’s true for life above the surface, too.

As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus saw people differently. He didn’t just see what’s on the outside; He saw who people were down deep.

As kids learn to see themselves and others as Jesus sees them, they can realize that everyone needs a Savior – even those who look like they have it all together. A relationship with Jesus Christ changes everything! All you have to do is dive in!

Kids will rotate through music, recreation, snack, crafts and storytelling!

  • Please fill out a separate form for each child.
  • There is a total limit of 250 children.
  • The charge will be $30 per child and $60 max per family.

Fellowship Hour Coordinator Needed

fellowship

 

The Fellowship Hour Ministry is an important part of Pender’s welcoming for visitors, new members, and current members. It’s a time to meet and greet, get to know one another, and enjoy some coffee and snack.

The Love God and Others Cluster is searching for a coordinator to lead this vital ministry and associated volunteers. This includes lining up volunteers to maintain the Fellowship Hour room on Sunday mornings.

Perhaps you have a new idea for the format of this gathering time? Please contact Carrie Cahoon or Lisa Bryda for more information on how you can contribute to this valuable ministry so that it may continue.
