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!

Today at Pender UMC ~ September 27, 2015

disciples-path

Please join us this Sunday, September 27, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.        

“A Disciple’s Path”

September 13 – October. 18, 2015

“A Disciple’s Path” guides individuals to take the next step in discipleship and become dynamic, engaged followers of Jesus Christ. The study combines a Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God’s love and grace with the time-tested practices of spiritual discipline expressed in the membership vows to uphold the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Participants will develop spiritual practices, discover their unique gifts, and become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in their own lives, the lives of others, and the world.

September 27: The Priority of Presence ~Acts 2:42-47 

Each of us has an instinctual desire to belong. Yet why do we spend so much time with our earbuds in, staring at our phones? Maybe that’s a symptom of something larger afoot. How can we better connect with one another and truly be present to one another?

Today at Pender UMC ~ August 23, 2015

in-his-house-feature

Please join us for a wonderful time of worship this Sunday, August 23rd, at our 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 worship services.

Pastor Dan will be preaching at all 3 services for the next 2 weeks on the Sermon Series: In His House.

This Sunday’s sermon is entitled “Embrace Your Place” (1 Corinthians 12:12-27)

When we find the place we’re meant to be, we can discover more about ourselves than we thought possible. In this two-part series, we’ll learn that the search for purpose can lead you to some unexpected places. In week one, learn to embrace the moment in time God has placed you in: you’re there for a reason. And in week two, we’ll explore how God uses highly unlikely people in highly unlikely ways to bring about highly unlikely results, when we’re just obedient.
