At 8:15 and 11:00 am, Pender offers a traditional/blended worship service. The service includes traditional music as well as contemporary worship and praise music.
You’ll find a variety of musical groups participating in these worship services, ranging from children, youth and adults, to vocal 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 every Sunday at the 8:15 service and the first Sunday of every month at the10:00 am One Table service.
Come and join us for worship every Sunday in the main sanctuary at Pender.
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 a 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!
For children and youth classes, please see information at the church.

Pender United Methodist Church has made a commitment to be an Accessible Congregation, as part of the National Organization on Disability's campaign of the same name. We proudly display their logo -- a wheelchair user surrounded by a heart -- to show that as a congregation, we strive to provide physical access and also open our hearts and minds to people with all types of disabilities.
Some of the ways we do this include:
- Automatic doors at the front entrance (for security reasons, these doors are functional during certain times only, including worship and meeting times)
- Large-print hymnals available upon request
- Hearing assistance devices available during worship
- Seating with space available to accommodate wheelchairs
