Christmas Music, Part 6 – Just In Time For Christmas

From RevKev, Pender’s Former Associate Pastor – “As it was, so it is, Christmas about Jesus. We are all distracted by the glitz and festivities, but let us hear the sound of Angels and the call to worship our Newborn King. Just in time for Christmas, a gift from God to you: A baby in a manger who would love us through and through.

Just In Time For Christmas, the latest album release by JC Reigns. 100% of the sales from this CD go to Western Fairfax Christian Ministries to support their mission of providing life-essential support to those needing assistance.

CDs available for purchase at the WFCM Thrift Store in Chantilly, Va. Visit for more information and for a link to purchase digital copies.”

26 July – Sermon Title: We’ve Got to Do it God’s Way (2 Kings 5:1-19)

Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.”

(2 Kings 5:13-14)

Sing ‘n Celebrate This Evening – at Pender UMC



Sing ‘n Celebrate is Pender Church’s informal evening worship service that has a focus on contemporary Christian music and original dramas and testimonies. Dress is casual and the atmosphere offers a wonderful means to start the week with God in mind. 

In addition to music and testimonies, prayer is offered. Communion is served periodically.

Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ May 3  at 7:00 PM

Featuring Family Life/Mothers

You won’t want to miss our May SNC – especially if you are part of a busy family. When we think of spirituality, we often picture inner peace and tranquility. But families are anything but tranquil.

According to Bonnie Miller-McLemore, “walking according to the pace of children can deepen faith.Children form adults as much as the reverse, and they have much to teach adults about the life of faith.

Keep in mind the fact that this service will speak to grandparents as much as it does to parents!! We welcome children at our services, since they bring a special joy to this time of worship.

JC Reigns leads worship with both modern Christian songs and a selection of old church hymns – the aim is to meet the needs of all who attend. JC Reigns has been together for 14 years and over the course of that time, has recorded five Christian CDs and used all the proceeds to benefit world wide and local charities. 

Whether you are a new Christian, or have been following Christ for years, this is just a wonderful way to gather in fellowship, sing songs to God and listen to your brothers and sisters as they share their faith. We invite you to come and bring a friend, meet other Pender People and leave with a song on your heart and the Son in your eyes.


A Way to Serve the Lord…

Carol Wilson needs members of the laity to train this year to serve as the Lay Director or a Co-Lay Director for our Sing ‘n Celebrate Service. If interested in finding out more information, please contact Carol by clicking here.
