Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ February 10 at 7:00PM

Sing "N Celebrate


As we approach the beginning of Lent, and continue to focus on our relationship with God, this SNC will provide for us an opportunity to more fully realize that the depth of our awareness of our Father God’s love for us is key in our growth in the Christian life.

The author, David Eckman, shares that “the focus Person for what is done in the “love relationship” is God, and Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit sustain that relationship.”

Bible Gateway Lent Devotionals Are Here

The Holy Bible

From my email:

Lent is coming! The season of Lent–the approximately six weeks leading up to Easter Sunday–begins on Wednesday, February 13. And that means….

Bible Gateway Lent Devotionals Are Here

Christians around the world observe Lent in a wide variety of ways. Some commit to daily Scripture meditation, devotional reading, or regular prayer. One common practice during Lent is to “give up” something you take for granted as an act of self-denial–and as a way to center our priorities around Jesus Christ and nothing else.

However you choose to observe Lent this year, we’ve got several email devotionals designed to help you stay focused on Jesus during the long journey to Easter:

  • Lent Devotions: An eclectic mix of Scripture readings, prayers, and reflections to help you ground your thoughts on Jesus Christ during the Easter season.
  • The Story of Jesus: Read through the entire life of Jesus Christ, beginning with his birth and culminating in his death and glorious resurrection.
  • Readings for Lent and Easter from The Voice: Daily Bible readings to help root you in Scripture throughout Lent, drawn from The Voice Bible translation.

Sign for up for these devotionals on our Newsletters page. All three begin on Wednesday, February 13.

Each of these devotionals takes a slightly different reflective approach to the Lent experience. Individually or collectively, they’ll give you something to think, pray, and reflect on as Easter approaches!

However you observe this season, we wish you a blessed, reflective Lent. It may seem far away now, but the joyous hope of Easter is coming!

The Bible Gateway Team

Smiles on Wheels

Visitation Ministry


We have wonderful news to share – the Pender UMC Visitation Ministry (aka Smiles on Wheels) is up and running! It is a blessing to have their services and we are looking to you, our church community, to let us know of folks who might enjoy a visit from our volunteers. The group of women have been trained by Chris Hanak, and have been busy since the fall bringing smiles and Christ to those who are not able to come to church on a regular basis.

Please contact Joyce Munt in our Church Office with any names or questions you might have concerning visitation and fellowship by this group.

Going Shopping?

Pender ReGift Thrift Store



Going shopping this weekend? Remember the Pender ReGift Thrift Store.

Pender ReGift Thrift Store is an outreach ministry of Pender United Methodist Church. Our nonprofit mission is the distribution of material goods to the poor, locally, nationally, and internationally. We are the only church around with a 5,000 sq ft warehouse and a loading dock. Working with for-profit, nonprofit, and government partners, we maximize our nonprofit potential. Our thrift store supports our nonprofit mission. We are family friendly.

Being thrifty, seeking value, or frugality, are all generally given a bad rap, but in this tough economic climate, you can defend your right to be smart.
​(703) 378-7371
​Our thrift store, offers a wide variety of unique items. Our furniture includes beds, couches, sofa beds, office chairs, tables, desks, cabinets, filing cabinets, baby furniture, and lawn furniture. All uphostered items have been sanitized in accordance with government regulations. Our gently-used clothing has been carefully sorted and sized. We have a wide variety of accessories including hats, shoes, purses, belts, and scarves. Our electronics department has a wide variety of computer equipment, including keyboards, monitors, printers, microwaves, and other small appliances. We carry big appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washers, and dryers. We have toys, sports equipment, linens, and lawn tools. Our books and media include DVDs, CDs, audio books, fiction, nonfiction, classics, a wide variety of children’s chapter books and early readers. We specialize in books for teachers and students. Our nonfiction books are organized including cookbooks, spiritual books, personal finance books, history and biography. Bibles are always free.

Our mission cannot be accomplished without your help! Everything we sell or give has been given to us. We do not accept consignments. We ask that you make sure your material donation is gently-used and clean before you bring it to us. Your financial support allows us to give more to those in need. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

We are also assisted by our volunteers. We have opportunities in volunteer coordination, advertising and marketing, in testing electronics, in sorting and pricing clothing and household goods. It feels good to make a difference!

Our hours are 11am – 7pm Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and 10am-6pm Fridays and Saturdays. Please stop by to donate, shop, or volunteer. Join our newsletter for weekly updates and coupons!
