Even St. Valentine Must Have Loved Covered Dish Dinners! (2/12/19)

Valentine’s Day reminds us how important it is to spend time with the people you love.  It also is an opportunity to form new relationships. In the Methodist tradition (and perhaps in the tradition of many churches), we like to gather together over food.  And so, on Tuesday Feb. 12, we’re throwing an “old fashioned” covered dish dinner!  Join us in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 PM.  Bring your favorite dish (or just yourself- there’s always plenty of food).

Men Are Ready to Roll! (1/19/19)

Who said that everything in church has to be serious stuff like study and worship?  Sometimes it’s just as important to just get out and spend time with each other.  After all, it’s the relationships that are formed in church that make all of that study and worship effective. And so- it’s hard to top Pizza and Bowling when it comes to guys going out for a fun evening!  And that’s what we’re doing on Saturday January 19.  Here are the details: DATE: ...

Sheep Surprise Pastor Jim! (10-14-18)

It was Laity Sunday- Pastor Jim was supposed to have the day off.  There were no baptisms, no communion, no tasks that could only be done by an elder.  And so, Pastor Jim joined the congregation as lay people led the music, prayers, and gave the sermon. But there was one small wrinkle to this Laity Sunday; it was being held during October, which is Pastor Appreciation Month.  And so our Christian Education Team took advantage of the situation and surprised our supposedly pew-bound pastor. ...

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...
