We meet at 1:00 pm at the Juvenile Detention Center.

Hope to see you there! For more info, contact Sean Niehoff.

Pender ministers to the youth lodged in the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) through a program of Sunday afternoon worship.  The JDC serves young men and women, ages 10 – 17.  These young men and women are held before trial, and in some cases, after trail in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.  The JDC also holds juveniles while awaiting transportation to the State Department of Juvenile Justice or other Placements.  Their offenses run the gambit from delinquent offenders with minor criminal records to youth charged with major crimes.  Pender members join with these youth in worship including contemporary Christian music, a message, and prayer.  Every fourth Sunday, we meet at the Center at 1 PM and are finished by 2:30 PM.

Go Directly to 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.

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!
