crazy-loveCrazy Love by Francis Chan, beginning Sept. 11th at 11am

The God of the universe is crazy about you! His love is the most powerful thing in the world and He wants to give it to you, so you can live for Him.

If you have made a commitment to follow Christ, then read Crazy Love to be reminded and challenged in your walk. Sharing from his own life struggles and sacrifices, author Francis Chan issues a call for selfless, Christ-like living. Let the love you have received from God impact your life like never before.

Today, September 4 2016 at Pender UMC

Please join us today Sunday, September 4, at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am Worship Services.

“Shift Happens”–a series looking at how we are to navigate change as followers of Jesus. In a world that is changing more rapidly every day, especially in Northern Virginia, we think this will be a timely topic.

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

By following Jesus and reaching out to others, we seek God’s transformation of ourselves and our world.
