PUMC’ers See Jesus! (4/11/18)

A bus full of about 60 people saw Jesus on April 11!  Well, in many ways we always see Jesus.  Technically speaking, on this day we saw “Jesus“; the current production at the Sight and Sound theater in Lancaster PA. The performances at Sight and Sound are legendary (if there ever was such a thing); live animals, computer graphics, and talented actors surround the audience in a way that brings everyone back to first century Israel.  Angels drop from the ceiling, raindrops fall, and...

Men Retreat to Strengthen their Mission (3/17/17)

The Mens Fellowship group followed a tradition this year; we went on a retreat to Black Rock. This was our 16th annual retreat. Routine? Not really! Every time you open yourself up for an encounter with God, something different is likely to happen. The topic of this year’s retreat was “Being a Man with a Mission”, and we explored how our “mission” plays out in our personal, family and church lives. Retreats aren’t just “book learning” or...
