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.

Graduation Sunday ~ June 12, 2016

graduation

 

This Sunday, June 12th, is Graduation Sunday. We will be honoring all of our high school and college graduates during our 11:00 am service. (All graduates are encouraged to wear their cap and gowns!)

At our 8:15 and 11:00 am Services, Pastor Kenny will be preaching on “Staying Positive in a Negative World” (Romans 12:1-2); and Pastor Dan will also be preaching on the same sermon title and scripture at the 9:30 Service.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:1-2)

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

By following Jesus and reaching out to others, we seek God’s transformation of ourselves and our world.
