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?

Next Contemporary Service Sunday at 11:15 am

Welcome to Common Ground

Not everyone is cut out for the same worship style.

Common Ground is Pender United Methodist Church's contemporary worship experience led by our worship leader and a rock-style worship band. You'll find worship to be more interactive and energetic, and you'll hear messages that are relevant to everyday life. 

Young children are more than welcome! We have a play area within our worship space set aside just for them, or they can enjoy our awesome Sunday school program. We also have paid staff nursery care available for our littlest ones.

You will leave feeling closer to Jesus, challenged and more prepared to serve Him, and warmed by a relationship in a genuine community of Christ-followers. We hope to see you soon!
