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.

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.”
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.
Please join us this Sunday, July 5, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.
Pastor Dan Elmore will be preaching at all three services.
Title: “Don’t Believe Me, Just Watch” Scripture: Proverbs 16:9 Description: When Pastor Dan left 3 years ago, little did he know he’d be returning to serve at Pender again! Join us as he shares about what he’s been up to and where he senses God leading into the future.
Listen to 224 past sermons by Pastors Kenny Newsome, Kevin Havens and Dan Elmore and others in the Pender Podcast.
