Christmas Music, Part 6 – Just In Time For Christmas

From RevKev, Pender’s Former Associate Pastor – “As it was, so it is, Christmas about Jesus. We are all distracted by the glitz and festivities, but let us hear the sound of Angels and the call to worship our Newborn King. Just in time for Christmas, a gift from God to you: A baby in a manger who would love us through and through.

Just In Time For Christmas, the latest album release by JC Reigns. 100% of the sales from this CD go to Western Fairfax Christian Ministries to support their mission of providing life-essential support to those needing assistance.

CDs available for purchase at the WFCM Thrift Store in Chantilly, Va. Visit for more information and for a link to purchase digital copies.”

Tonight at 5:00 PM ~ Advent Sing ‘n Celebrate



Sing ‘N Celebrate, Celebrating Advent

December 6 at 5-6pm in the Fellowship Hall

As part of our Advent Journey, join us as we focus on another, most difficult journey which brought Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, where we feature the reaction of an innkeeper and his wife who had nothing but a stable to offer to this special couple. Hope was born in the midst of disappointment.

We are looking forward to hearing the Christmas praise music of the new band which will be auditioning.
