Sunday, August 23, at Pender UMC

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.

Listen to 232 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.

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.

Today, Sunday, July 5 at Pender UMC

dan-594

Pastor Dan Elmore is back with us.  Dan became our Associate Pastor, again, in 2015 after serving here previously 2010-2012.

During the time in between, he started a church from scratch, and then helped another existing congregation reach out to new people, especially those who don’t “do church.” He brings those same goals to Pender.

He is passionate about leading people to discover more about God. In doing so, we always discover more about ourselves (funny how it never works the other way around).

When Dan isn’t thinking “church,” he’s enjoying time with his family; his beautiful wife Bekah, his daughter Chloe and his son Mark. They love to take advantage of all the great family activities in the NOVA/DC region.
