Poland Short-Term Mission Team


The Pender team is in the final planning for the Poland Short-Term Mission Trip. The camp theme is “Victorious Life and the Witness.”

Funds are still needed to sponsor Polish Youth. $220 covers one youth for the entire camp. $110 provides a half scholarship. In sports, victory is today but tomorrow is another event. In Christ, victory is Eternal.

Party in the Dark ~ Sept. 14th at 6:00 pm




When you spend one hour in the dark, you will bring light to families who live in complete darkness every night.  On September 14th at 6:00 pm, Pender will be making solar powered lights to take to the border villages that have no electricity in Thailand as part of the Thailand Short-Term Mission Team.

Please bring your family and come out to help assemble the lights.  We will start the evening with an Asian-themed pot luck dinner.  Every family should bring food to share and then we will assemble the light kits.

Donations to defray the costs of the light kits can be placed in the jar in the Narthex or placed in the offering with a note for “Party in the Dark”.

Questions contact:  Laura and David Shuping by clicking here.
