Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ Celebration of Children

Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebration of Children at October 1 at 5:00

Save this date for your family’s opportunity to hear Pender kids sharing about the beautiful story of “Good Good Father” — which will leave your children with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him.

We read in Matthew 7:12 – “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you”, which is commonly known as the Golden Rule.

This statement, as Jesus formulated it, is the foundation of active goodness and mercy — the kind of love God shows to us every day.

We have a special opportunity next Sunday to be witness to our children and grandchildren demonstrating in words and acting this type of love.

Small Group Celebration!

disciples-path

Join us next Friday evening, November 13, at 7pm, for dessert and coffee (and other beverages) as we celebrate the conclusion of our church-wide study and message series, “A Disciple’s Path.”

We had a great turn out at the opening celebration, and if you attended that, we’d love for you to invite a friend this time! During our time together we will have an “open-mic” time of testimony sharing regarding your experiences through small groups and diving deeper into what it means to follow the disciple’s path through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

We will also share information about our upcoming Advent message series and group experience entitled, “Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected.”

Please RSVP to Joyce Munt in the church office by Wednesday, November 11, and let us know how many folks you’ll be bringing with you!

Remember Sunday’s Sermon?

It was on witnessing!

The Way of Witness

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.

Listen to it again, or for the first time, at http://www.penderumc.org/pages/page.asp?page_id=301595&programId=228132

Chuck Knows Church also has information on witnessing.

“Evangelism”. What’s your church’s relationship with the “E-Word”? Do people run when they hear it? Chuck helps the members of Park Grove Community Church learn how not to be scared of evangelism.

Sunday’s Sermon ~ April 21, 2013

Sermon Series ~ We Have a Story to Tell

April 21st Sermon ~ “Looking for Witnesses”

God has left his ministry in the hands of those of us who have experienced Jesus.  We are witnesses.  A story to tell because we’ve experienced it.  How are you doing as witnesses?  God needs us!

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
