September 26, 2019 | Pastor by Heather Amos

    It is with heavy hearts that we announce the departure of Pastor Catharine Guest from Pender’s service as Senior Pastor. Her decision to retire was difficult and made after prayerful discernment. We are grateful for her many contributions to Pender and wish Pastor Catharine the best as she begins a new chapter in her life. 

    * Pastor Catharine’s last day of preaching will be October 6th with a reception to follow the 11:00 service.

    * Love offerings are being accepted and may be given online or by check (with Pastor Catharine’s name in the memo line).  Please note: donations are not tax deductible.  

    * Everyone is also encouraged to bring cards that express your appreciation and there will be a basket available in the Church Lobby.  Please join us for the sendoff.

    * We will have guest speakers/pastors preaching the three Sundays beginning October 6th.  On November 3rd a new appointed interim pastor will join Pender UMC.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Heather Amos, SPPRC Chair at or Pastor Catharine Guest at . Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time of transition. Blessings, Heather Amos, SPPRC Chairperson
