Today, September 18, 2016 at Pender UMC

Please join us today Sunday, September 18, at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am Worship Services as we continue our Sermon Series,“Shift Happens”— a series looking at how we are to navigate change as followers of Jesus.



New Sermon Series, began Sept. 11th:

“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.

Both Pastor Kenny & Pastor Dan will be preaching on“Shift Happens: Dancing Through Change” (Genesis 12:1-5)

Pender’s Vision Statement: 

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

Listen to past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.
