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

Sunday, August 30, 2020 at Pender

 

Rev. Will White will preach a sermon titled, “Blessed Be the Ties?” based on 1 Thessalonians 5:14, 1 John 1:7 and Matthew 22:37-39

 

Goal: To encourage Christian fellowship.

This Sunday, we’ll depart a little from the process of growing in faith to talk about a tool that helps make it happen.

Q: What needs to be in place for Christian growth to occur?

A: A Christlike character of the church, small groups, and accountability, help drive “disciple-making”.

Please listen to the archives as we continue our worship series regarding “The Way of Salvation“.
Invite a friend to watch!
As always, please like, comment, and share on Facebook.

Grace and Peace, Rev. Will White,
Lead Pastor of Pender UMC
