Canned Fruit Drive

 

Pender’s canned fruit drive for Western Fairfax Christian Ministries continues until September 13th.

Many people are struggling during this pandemic. They are supplementing their diet with food bank donations thereby diminishing reserves at an accelerated rate.

They need our help right now! Please bring cans of fruit to the drive through entrance of Pender UMC, M-F, 9am-5pm.

Place your donations in the blue shopping cart! We filled our first cart the morning after the drive was announced.

Let’s keep this going!  Thanks again! ~ Rev. White

Destined in Love

At our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am services on October 13, Guest Speaker Thom Jones will preach on “Destined in Love” based on scriptures Ephesians 1:3-10 and Ephesians 1:11-14.

The book of Ephesians hits on a wide range of moral and ethical behaviors, designed to ensure believers are living up their (our) heavenly calling. As we continue in our faith from day to day, month to month, and year to year, the temptation to get too comfortable will always exist. However, the Apostle Paul presented the gift of God in Christ and the benefits we receive so clearly that we cannot help but ask ourselves if our lives reflect that reality as they should.

How have you grown in your Christian life since you came to faith in Jesus Christ? The words in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians makes clear that spiritual growth occurs primarily in community with others – in other words: WE NEED YOU AT CHURCH.

Maturity yields benefits in believers’ moral lives, but it extends far beyond that as well. Increased maturity benefits the community at large, leading us to present a more consistent witness to the working of God in our lives as well as protecting us from the harmful divisions and quarrels that have plagued so many communities throughout history.

God so loved the world – He has destined us in love. Come to church; feel the love, and help spread His word.

We hope to see you in church on Sunday.
