Everyone has a next step. What's yours?

We hope our church can be a place where you connect to others and find a home. Here at Pender, we believe in the core values of inclusivity and redemption, grace and love and, above all - the transforming power of Christ. We never arrive, but we are all committed to walking the journey together. Our dedicated team would love to connect with you and hear more of your story, and help find the best place for you to flourish. 

We're so excited you're interested in learning more about who we are and joining our community!


Pender community groups are sometimes called small groups. These are usually a handful of people who attend Pender or are from the community. Our groups meet together at different times during the week for Bible study, service projects, and/or fellowship. Since COVID, most of our groups meet online as well as in person.

Pender History

We started Pender with two small dreams: a desire to follow God's call and a longing for life-changing community. Since that leap of faith over 100 years ago, we've seen God show up in amazing ways! From near Fair Oaks Mall, where the Pender Vet is now to our current location, our physical location may have moved but our dreams have never strayed. We're grateful for where God has us now—and can't wait to see where He's leading next!
