Today at Pender UMC ~ December 13, 2015

under-wraps-feature

Join us this Sunday, December 13th, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11am worship services. Pastor Kenny & Pastor Dan will continue our sermon series,“Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected” and will be preaching on“God is Dangerous & Jealous”(Matthew 2:1-3)

God’s mighty power brings danger. God is not tame. As C. S. Lewis writes in his book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, God is not “quite safe. . . but he’s good.” What does this mean? God also doesn’t tolerate competition. God wants the full attention of our hearts and minds. In a season filled with many distractions like shopping and parties, what would it mean to give our good God our full devotion?

Sunday Music ~ December 7, 2014

christmas-music

The Pender UMC Choir, Handbells, Orchestra and Liturgical Dancer will present Joel Raney’s Christmas Cantata, Celebrate the Season, at 8:15 and 11:00 am on Sunday, December 7.

Contemporary and upbeat, this superb cantata celebrates the excitement, joy and true meaning of the Christmas season. Joel Raney retells the Christmas story through a unique partnering of creative, original songs with traditional carols. Most of the originals incorporate strains from traditional carols, weaving a tapestry with just enough familiarity  to warm our hearts and with enough originality to surprise our ears and lift our spirits. The styles he uses range from traditional classical, to jazz and everything in between.


At Pender’s neighbor, Christ Presbyterian:

The Cathedral Brass will perform “A Cathedral Brass Christmas” at Christ Presbyterian Church, Fairfax, on Sunday, December 7th at 4:00 pm. The concert features beloved Christmas carols and other holiday favorites, including ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, narrated by Alan Cole.

Other selections includeLeRoy Anderson’s Suite of Carols, Antonio DiLorenzo’s The Toymaker, and Alfred Reed’s Joyeux Noel. Jazz trumpeter Roger Rossi, former member of the Army Blues, will be featured. The concert is free; voluntary donations are gratefully accepted.

Cathedral Brass is a brass choir based at Vienna Presbyterian Church and performs under the direction of L. Thomas Vining.
