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!

Christmas Cantata

cantata-2016a

 

“Invitation to a Miracle: A Cantata for Christmas”  by Joseph Martin
Presented by: The Pender UMC Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra

Sunday, December 4  All 3 Services

Joyful sounds abound in this colorful Christmas gift for choirs. Through poetic narration, scripture passages and creatively arranged carols, the timeless story of the birth of Christ is presented. Gathered around the wonders that accompanied Jesus’ birth, this cantata journeys from the miracle of prophecy to the incarnation and proclamation of this most significant moment.

Saturday, December 3, 2016, 10:00 – 2:00

Pender is excited to once again host Christmas Vacation Bible School!

We’d love to lighten your load this holiday season and give you the gift of time to prepare for Christmas. Your children will have a wonderful time learning about the true meaning of Christmas while moving through different rotations of Christmas Story, craft, music and recreation.   The children will be served lunch, so please note any allergies your child has on the registration form.

Children ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome.   Please note that all children attending MUST be potty-trained.

Please note: 2 adults per classroom are needed to help shepherd children at each rotation. Sign up to help by emailing Joni or on the Connection Card on Sunday.

The fee for this event is $10 per child or $20 per family, to cover the cost of food and craft materials.   The fee is payable during registration.

Registration closes November 28.  Don’t miss out!

Since it is Jesus’s Birthday we ask each participant to consider bringing a NEW toy / book as a gift for the “TOYS FOR TOTS” Campaign. The Marines will distribute all your donations to less fortunate children before Christmas. Please don’t bring any food or toy guns/weapons and also gift needs to be unwrapped.

Christmas ~ Luke 2:9-11

Luke2-9-11

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

~Luke 2:9-11, King James Version (KJV)
