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.

Today at Pender UMC ~ Sunday, June 21st

father

Please join us this Sunday, June 21, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.

Sermon Series:  STORIES          

June 21 – Annual Conference Sunday. “Father Knows Best”

Using Romans 8:18-25 as a base, we will take a closer look at the significance of Father’s Day from a variety of perspectives – most importantly, God’s.  Thom Jones will be preaching at 8:15 and 11:00am

9:30 Contemporary Service: Our very own Angie Green will be preaching at our 9:30 service on Joshua 1:6-9:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

What is the Annual Conference?

An Annual Conference is a regional body that governs much of the life of the “Connectional Church.” Sound confusing? We agree. Chuck will try to make sense of “Annual Conferences” when he makes a conference call.

Listen to past sermons in the Pender Podcast.
