Adults at Pender
New Group for Young Adults. Video and Conversation
From 10 to 10:15 we'll have coffee and fellowship. At 10:15 there will be a short 10 minute video and then conversation.
Our music director, Brian Stevenson will facilitate the “Nooma” series to start this group off, and then look to class members for areas of topic and/or service ideas (books, lunch meetings, mission work etc.) Meeting in the library.
We’re a place for men of all ages and places along their faith journeys to connect with other men, learn from other men, and serve alongside other men in our church, our neighborhoods and our world.
We have any number of ways to get plugged in:
- Connecting with other guys informally through a variety of activities;
- Spiritual Growth through weekends away, Bible studies and small groups;
- Serving others through volunteer projects in the church, community and beyond.
There’s a place here at Pender for every man to connect, grow and serve.
We’re a sisterhood acting in faith to tackle the hard work of the world without hesitation. Driven by God’s love and united in sisterhood, we work to improve the lives of women, children and youth. Every day, we show up. We take action. We get it done. And we invite you to join us.

Our Vision Statement: The United Women of Faith of Pender seek to connect all of Pender’s women to one another in an open, supportive network of Circles, ministries and activities. We facilitate opportunities for friendships to grow and spiritual faiths to deepen. We strive to practice utmost hospitality in our meetings, our church and our community. We support a variety of missions in our local community and beyond to spread the joy and good news of Jesus Christ.
Each year we host a variety of events to support our mission and our theme:
- Prayer breakfasts with guest speakers,
- Luncheons to celebrate our Woman of the Year and to share fellowship,
- An on-site retreat in the fall to focus our spiritual growth,
- Seasonal events such as the Christmas Brunch,
- And two or three events to raise funds that support missions efforts locally and worldwide.
Pender has Circles that consist of small groups of women who meet weekly and monthly in fellowship and service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Women who are unable to participate in Circles are welcome as constituents at all UMW events, and new members are always welcome!
The Prime Timers are recently-and-not-so-recently-retired-aged folks, though anyone can join in the fun! We generally meet every month to share a meal or activity.
The Romeos meet at Bob Evans on the fourth Thursday each month at 11:45.
In non-COVID times, the Juliets meet occasionally.
