Happy Fourth of July!

july4-eisenhower

 

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

Independence Day fireworks are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner”, “God Bless America”, “America the Beautiful”, “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”, “This Land Is Your Land”, “Stars and Stripes Forever”, and, regionally, “Yankee Doodle” in northeastern states and “Dixie” in southern states. Some of the lyrics recall images of the Revolutionary War or the War of 1812.

Don’t Forget to Change Your Clocks Tonight!

2014 Day Light Savings

Daylight Savings time begins again!

On Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 2:00:00 AM (or earlier!) clocks are turned forward 1 hour to become Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 3:00:00 AM

Daylight Savings TIme is not just a way to annoy us when we want to sleep in on Sundays.  The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented during the First World War.

Although most of the United States used DST throughout the 1950s and 1960s, DST use expanded following the 1970s energy crisis and has generally remained in use in North America and Europe since that time.

Everybody sing along…

Evening to Remember ~ Nov. 16th

evening-to-remember-500

 

 

Rev. Kevin Havens (RevKev) says:

We wanted to let you know that on Saturday, November 16th, The JC Reigns Little Big Band,  will host another Evening To Remember here at Pender UMC.

This is a time when we invite the elderly from area Senior Living Facilities, to be our guests, as many of them will not be able to “go home” for the holidays.

This is an evening of fun music from their past, as they are escorted by US Marine Corp personnel, served by 4th to 6th grade young people, with homemade desserts and refreshments.

There is no charge, this is simply an opportunity for our congregation and friends to be there as hosts and hostesses, for those who spend much of their time alone and gazing out the window.

I hope you will make plans to join us and I will promise, you too will be blessed by those you come to serve. They are very appreciative and this is something that we want to continue to offer, so they feel special at this time of year.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of this wonderful ministry to those who might not have other options when we gather with our families.

RevKev

Pender UMC- November 16th, 6:30 SHARP.  Event will last until 8:00. Attire is casually formal
