Church and Society
Each year the Church and Society Committee sponsors several events.
In January we celebrate Right to Life Sunday with a speaker from Sanctity of Life Ministries. Throughout the year we have a baby basket ministry with a basket in the hallway for anyone to place baby items in. This is filled regularly and then taken to Sanctity of Life Ministries for use of new parents in need of baby items. The congregation, as well as the Pender Hill School participants, have been very supportive of this effort.
The first Thursday in May is the National Day of Prayer. In celebration of this a breakfast is held at the church, followed by a prayer service in which we hold up our leaders (National, State, Local and Church).
October is normally devoted to anti-pornography events.
November is normally devoted to the Persecuted Church worldwide.
Articles of current interest, or pertaining to any of the above issues, are regularly published in the Pender Post, the monthly church publication. Some items are also submitted to be included in the Pender Web Site.
The Church and Society Committee also participates in the fellowship hour and the annual mission/ministry fair.
The committee is staffed with a small number of dedicated volunteers and would love to have many more interested participants.
