What Should We Pray For???

What Should We Pray For???

We hear a lot about prayer.  Prayer is a big part of developing a relationship with God…  it’s a huge part of being a Christian. But what do we pray for?  Can we “bother” God with trivial requests like asking for a good parking spot?  What about praying for someone’s  health; maybe it’s God’s will that this person not get well.  Should we pray anyway?  Can we pray for ourselves?  What can we pray for??? Some of these are difficult questions, and we...

Fall 2016 Small Groups are Set to Kick Off!

Over the years, Pitman United Methodist Church has offered to its congregation small groups that based their existence on building relationships with one another and with God. Some groups lasted several years, and some ended after their courses of study were completed. Small groups are part of God’s plan for spiritual maturity! “Two are better than one…. If they fall, one will lift up the other…” Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”...

Thanks to the work of the Holy Spirit (and some faithful human hands), our 2016 Vacation Bible School was a huge success! Kids of all ages learned how to depend on the Light of the World to get through our “caves.”
