Fall 2021 Bible Study

OUR FALL STUDY THIS YEAR will be Michael Slaughter’s book, “The Revolutionary Kingdom”. It begins in Sunday School and other small groups on September 12.

If you do not have a Sunday School Class or small group, then Rev. White will be offering the class on Tuesdays at 2pm and 7pm. The classes will last one hour.

We grow broader as a church by growing deeper, so please come and bring a friend!

Sign up by going to the following address: pender.church/signup.


Christian Believer

Pender just concluded a 31 week intensive study titled, “Christian Believer”.  It combines the study of Scripture and Christian belief.  A limited number of participants were able to take this class “face to face”.  Others, participated on Zoom.  

It was offered on Tuesdays at 2pm or 7pm.  

  • Your commitment includes a half hour to forty five minutes of reading 6 days a week in preparation for the class that will last approximately 2 hours.  
  • You’ll need to maintain a discipline and take notes on what you are reading for the class meeting discussion.  
  • You’ll need to purchase the Christian Believer Study Manual (red book) and Christian Believer Readings (white book).  They are available at Cokesbury.com as well as Amazon.com.  (Compare the prices!)

If you want to take this class and the cost of books is preventing you, please contact Pastor Will or Joyce Munt as soon as possible, and they will be provided.

The first class began on Tuesday, October 6, 2021. It lasted about an hour and a half.  I’ll explain the class outline,  the Study Manual, and Readings at that time.  We’ll take mutually agreed upon breaks in our meeting schedule for holidays.
