Today at Pender UMC ~ October 15, 2017

Please join us today at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11am Worship Services.
Pastor Dan will be preaching his final sermon in his series based on our church-wide study, “Solve: Finding God’s Solutions in a World of Problems” entitled ” The Beauty of Name-Dropping” (Nehemiah 3:1-5).

Last week’s sermon:

Flea Market and Boutique Set Up Begins today.

Enjoy a BBQ luncheon (provided by the UMW) immediately following the 11am service and then help us get a start on all of the set up and unpacking of boxes!
Our Pender men will return from their retreat later in the day, so we really need as many hands on deck as possible to make this happen! Please remember, these are the biggest fundraisers for the UMW and UMM and allow us to raise all of our budget for missions throughout the year!
Of course we will continue to need help throughout the week with getting everything in its place, so consider helping then as well or you can be a cashier during the event.
We would also love to have extra bakers for our women’s bake sale. Donations for the flea market will be accepted beginning this Sunday through Wednesday.
We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please contact our leaders below:

 

WFCM’s Current Request for Donations:
Fresh Oranges, Apples, Potatoes & Onions
All donations may be left in the blue grocery cart located in the coat rack area. Financial contributions are also accepted (cash, check or through our website). Please mark your tax deductible donation “WFCM Food Pantry.” This will be recorded on your giving statement.
Please note: We do not accept any items that have been opened.

Men: Reserve Your Space!

 

 

2017 PUMM Men’s Getaway/Adventure Weekend – October 13-15
Join us as we hear from guys just like us how they’ve found Jesus in the highs and the lows of life, and we’ll explore how others were able to find Jesus — from the top of the mountains to the worst of the battlefield.

2017 Winter Season

“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:17-18

Pender United Methodist Church is once again honored to be hosting a Hypothermia Center in coordination with Fairfax County Fairfax Area Christian Emergency and Transitional Services (FACETS).  FACETS is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless in Fairfax County.   Last winter there was an average of 30 to 40 guests per host church.  FACETS rotates week-to-week between faith community hosting sites. Pender UMC hosting week is March 12-19.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?

When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?
The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me”

~ Matthew 25:35-40
