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...

Winter ’17 Small Groups begin Huddling! (1/23/17)

During the Fall we introduced a successful run of new small groups.  Besides the learning and studying that comes from being part of a Small Group, you also make some new friends, deepen existing relationships, and surround eachother in prayer.  True Christian Fellowship. Some of these groups are continuing, and others are being newly formed.  But all are open and welcoming new members.  As we move from the Christmas season towards Lent, now is a good time to check out the schedule of Small...

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.”...

2016 Vacation Bible School Leads us out of Out of a Cave! (6/27 – 7/1)

Caves… they’re dark, scary, and they’re easy to get lost in. They’re also a perfect metaphor for the stretches of life where there seems to be no hope.
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.”

3rd and 4th Graders Learn to Be Jesus’ Hands and Feet (1/17/16)

The Third and Fourth graders in our Sunday School are practicing to be the “Hands” and “Feet” of Jesus by making a chain recording their good deeds. We’re hoping that by the end of the year, our chain will reach around the room!   Standing in the Gap As we saw in a recent sermon, Ezekiel 22:30-31 uses the image of someone “Standing in the Gap” between God’s love and humanity’s sinfulness.  God is calling us to be “priests”;...

2015 Vacation Bible School Goes to Nazareth! (6/22-26)

Our Vaction Bible School in June of 2015 took over 100 kids on a trip back in time to see what Jesus was like as a child.  We went to Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown, and visited with his mom, Mary.  We also went into the market place and made some crafts, ate some authentic food, and talked to people who may not have always believed in Jesus. There were fun and games to play as well, one of our favorites was to crush “grapes” (water balloons) with our feet just like how they made wine and olive...

United Methodist Women Making a Difference in April! (4/2015)

The United Methodist Women’s long time “claim to fame” has been our bedrock of meeting together in groups called “Circles.”   UMW Circles were in place long before the term “Small Group” came into vogue, and they are a place to study the Bible and exchange thoughts within the community of other women.  Here’s the April schedule of UMW Circle gatherings: The Wesleyann Circle will be meeting on Monday, April 6th in the church parlor at 1:00 PM.

New Early Bird Bible Study on Tuesday Nights (11/4/14)

On Tuesdays, our church dives into The Word with several small group Bible studies which come before and after a dinner.

The Early Bird study is led by Pastor Glenn Chaplin (who also serves as the pastor of the Downer UMC). They have recently concluded a study on Heaven, and now they’ve started a new study looking at what it...
