Local Short-term Mission Trip Opportunity

October 4-6, 2013
Serve as a one-on-one buddy for a child (usually ages 9-16) with special needs
Camp Highroad, Middleburg, VA (about a 45 minute ride West off Rt. 50)
Given the nature of this camp experience for the participants, these are not medically fragile children, but rather higher functioning children with a diagnosis such as Autism or Aspergers.
Open to volunteers 16 years and older. Trained staff will be on the weekend, so no special skills are required just a willing and loving heart.
If interested contact Laura Shuping by clicking on this link.

JC Reigns at Arcola UMC Saturday Night, for Benefit Concert

Please join us on Saturday evening, 7:00 @ Arcola United Methodist Church for a benefit concert, supporting Camp Highroad.

The evening will be a mix of Christian Family music and video programs highlighting Camp Highroad and its efforts to offer a Christian camp again this summer to anyone who would like to attend.

Last year we were able to send 54 young people who might never have had that opportunity.

In advance, we appreciate your support for this wonderful cause and hope you will plan to join us in this endeavor. The event will be at Arcola UMC, but for Camp Highroad.

The address for the church is:
24757 Evergreen Mills Road, Dulles, VA.

Event will run from 7:00 until 8:30, “everyone is welcome”.

This Week at Pender – February 21, 2013

 

This Week at Pender

February 21, 2013

 
New Sermon Series ~ Hard Questions
Feb. 24th Sermon:  Are issues black and white or only gray?
Is there an answer to the issues we face in the world today?  If you look at our congress and society it seems each charts out its answer and that’s it. Or we simply say there isn’t an answer but it’s a gray area and its up to each to decide.  Does the Bible teach an objective truth and, if so, what difference does it make?  Let’s look at that this Sunday and the issues we as a society face.
 
Supper for the Soul Thursday Dinners starts TONIGHT!
Join us each Thursday during Lent for dinner and a discussion based on the sermon from the previous Sunday.

Please plan to attend — the program will begin at 6:00 and be finished by 7:00 so that all may attend other evening events as needed.

What’s for dinner? 

Feb. 21 – Tortellini Soup & Chicken Tortilla Soup served w/fruit, bread & salad

Feb. 28 – Baked Potato Bar with all the fixings served w/garden salad & fruit

Mar. 7  – Chili and Baked Potato Soup served w/fruit, bread & salad

Mar. 14- Baked Macaroni & Cheese and Baked Macaroni w/Ham & Peas served w/fruit

Mar. 21- Sandwich Night – Egg salad, tuna salad & assorted deli meats served w/chips & fruit

Common Ground Beautification” Postponed
  

The Common Ground “beautification party”

 originally scheduled for this Saturday

 is being postponed.

 

Stay tuned for the make-up date, for a day of fun & fellowship!

 

JOB OPENING ~ Church Treasurer

Treasurer

Due to considerable changes over the last several years in our financial management requirements, the SPRC (Staff Parrish Relations Committee) has restructured the Church Treasurer position. The Church Treasurer position is now a full-time salaried position that requires a degree in accounting and a minimum of three years of professional experience. For more information and to review the detailed job description, please visit the following link. If you, or someone you know, are interested, please email your current resume to Heather Amos or send a hard copy to the church office at 12401 Alderwoods Drive, Fairfax, Va. 22033.

 

Lenten Sing ‘n Celebrate and Healing Service ~ March 3rd at 7 pm
  

Many have wondered about  in Matthew 21:21 – “that if we have faith and don’t doubt, we can move mountains.”  Jesus, of course, was not suggesting that His followers use prayer as “magic” and perform in constant “mountain moving” acts.  At our Lenten SNC, we will all have a special time for realizing that He was actually making a strong point about the disciples’ (and our) lack of faith.  Have we talked to God about the kinds of mountains we face?

If in need of healing, this is the best time to reserve this evening on your calendar for Pastor Kenny’s Time of Healing.

Camp Highroad Benefit Concert ~ March 2nd at 7:00 pm

 

 

 

 

Join JC Reigns (Rev Kev’s band)

for an evening of Praise and Worship

 to benefit Camp Highroad

March 2 at 7:00 pm

at

Arcola United Methodist Church 

24757 Evergreen Mills Road,Dulles, VA 20166

 

All donations received at the concert will help Camp Highroad reach their goal to teach 700 children this summer about Jesus and what it means to have Him in their lives.  Help make a life-long difference in a child’s life.
Lenten Care Notes
LENTEN CARE NOTES are available in a rack on the right wall near the Sanctuary entrance. These 8-page booklets offer spiritual encouragement, help and hope.

  care notes

Three of the booklets in the rack are:

  • 40 Days & 40 Ways to Make the Most of Lent This Year
  • Make Lent a Season for Healing Your Grief
  • A Simple Family Prayer Plan for Lent
Is God Calling You?!

MISSION TRIP TO BRAZIL

 

We are in the first steps of planning a trip to work with Pender Missionaries,
Charles and Becky Jackson, in the outlying areas of Rio.  The Jacksons work with an interdenominational Church which they helped start 10 years ago, along with several satellite churches.
This is a relational ministry with the main focus being on helping to feed the poor, visiting homes, training leaders and outreach.
The dates of the trip are to be determined (most likely the end of June).  If interested in being part of this awesome ministry adventure, please contact Sarah Hocker .
Wanted:  A Few Good Women and Men
 Do our military service members and veterans hold a special place in your heart?

Pender UMC is looking to expand our military ministry in 2013.  Are you good at organizing a donation drive? Enjoy sending cards and notes of encouragement? Willing to organize and host a sporting event to benefit our wounded warriors? Crafty and able to knit, crochet, or sew items to donate? Want to support military families in some way? Looking to help out in a small or large way but simply don’t know how to get started? Please stop by the Military Ministry table near the coat racks anytime in February (between and after Sunday church services).  You’ll be able to sign up, get information, share ideas, and ask questions.  Or you can simply email Kay Creel with your area of interest and questions.

God bless those who are serving and have served our country.

Smiles on Wheels
We have wonderful news to share – the Pender UMC Visitation Ministry (aka Smiles on Wheels) is up and running!  It is a blessing to have their services and we are looking to you, our church community, to let us know of folks who might enjoy a visit from our volunteers.  The group of women have been trained by Chris Hanak, and have been busy since the fall bringing smiles and Christ to those who are not able to come to church on a regular basis.

Please contact Joyce Munt in our Church Office with any names or questions you might have concerning visitation and fellowship by this group.

 

Child Protection Policy
  

CPPCHILD PROTECTION POLICY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORMS FOR 2013 need to be signed by all those working with children.

 

Forms are available on the Welcome Desk.

 

Got Mulch?

With the relatively warm winter we’ve had, Spring is truly just around the corner!

JC Reigns feels blessed to be a part of this wonderful event, which will raise money for children who might not otherwise be able to attend a Christian camp this summer.
