Go Directly to Jail…

jail

 

This Sunday, January 22nd, join us in worship with the young men and women at the Juvenile Detention Center. You may feel like your individual participation doesn’t matter, but it does! Over and over again, the staff tells us how we make a difference in the young men and women’s lives and the lives of the staff! All we need to do is show up and worship!

Each month, the counselors and the residents look forward to our visit. It’s easy and it only takes an hour-and-a-half at a crucial time in someone’s life.

We meet at 1:00 pm at the Juvenile Detention Center, 10650 Page Ave. Fairfax, VA 22030.

Your Best Super Bowl Party Yet!

superbowl
On Sunday, February 5, 2017, millions of people will gather in their homes to watch commercials and party. In between the commercials, there is a football game as well.

The UMW has a way to make Super Bowl LI your best party yet, even though the Redskins had to stay at home. We are selling Liliana’s empanadas for you and your football-loving guests to enjoy. These things have way more filling than Tom Brady’s football, and that includes organic beef, organic chicken, or organic vegetables! Stay tuned as we may add other flavors as well.

We will be selling these award-winning, worthy-of-the-Lombardi-trophy gems after each of the services over the next three weeks – in the coat rack area. The prices are $10 for a box of 6 large (5″ empanadas) and $5 for 6 small (3″ empanadas). The proceeds of this sale will go to the UMW’s short-term mission fund, which we use to send Pender women to spread the gospel of Jesus to other countries where football means something entirely different.

Thanks for supporting us!
