Go Directly to Jail…

jail

 

This Sunday, January 22nd, join us in worship with the young men and women at the Juvenile Detention Center. You may feel like your individual participation doesn’t matter, but it does! Over and over again, the staff tells us how we make a difference in the young men and women’s lives and the lives of the staff! All we need to do is show up and worship!

Each month, the counselors and the residents look forward to our visit. It’s easy and it only takes an hour-and-a-half at a crucial time in someone’s life.

We meet at 1:00 pm at the Juvenile Detention Center, 10650 Page Ave. Fairfax, VA 22030.

Let’s Party!

jdc-christmas-2016

 

Christmas caroling! Pizza! Sodas! Games! The Christmas Story! Cookies & ice cream! Each year we put on the Christmas party for the residents at the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center. Join us on Saturday, December 17th at 11am-1pm, at 10650 Page Ave., Fairfax, VA 22030

Everyone has a great time! So please come, help out, serve lunch, sing carols — but most importantly, meet the residents in a time where many feel separated & alone, and bring them some Christmas cheer!

Today, November 6, 2016 at Pender UMC

dear-john-letters-feature

 

Please join us this Sunday, November 6, at our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 am Worship Services.

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all three services on“The Perfect Candidate” (1 John 4:16b-19).

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.We love because he first loved us.”

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.
