Rev Will White will preach on
"Expect a Miracle"
based on scriptures Isaiah 7:14 and Luke 21:25-36.
From the Advent Series “Experience the Joy”.
The first week of Advent must deal with the shock. Is it time? Already? Sure, the world has been giving Christmas hints for months now, but it still seems to surprise us every year. I’m not sure how you receive this sort of thing on the First Sunday of Advent. Sometimes, I think that folks are expecting to hear the preliminaries of the Christmas story – maybe an angel announcement, maybe a song of transformation, maybe a dream or a journey or a royal decree. The gospel, on the other hand, is foreboding. “Pay attention,” he says. “Look at the trees,” he says. Look around. Look up, look down, or just look. “Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down” (21:34) – so that you don’t miss it, so that you don’t miss him. A miracle is on the way. How can we participate in it?

Grace and Peace, Rev. Will White,
Lead Pastor of Pender UMC
At 9:00 am, Pender offers a traditional/blended worship service. The service includes traditional music as well as some praise music.
You’ll find a variety of musical groups participating in these worship services, ranging from children, youth and adults, to vocal, flute and bell choirs.
At Pender’s traditional/blended service, you get the best of both worlds! We celebrate the traditions of our faith at these services with the scriptures, the creeds of the church, the symbols of our faith and a word from the Bible that applies spiritual principles to everyday life.
Holy Communion is shared the first Sunday of every month. Come and join us for worship every Sunday in the main sanctuary at Pender.
