Countdown to “The Messiah”: Week 6 of 7

“His Yoke is Easy and His Burthen is Light”… Our countdown to our 12/17/17 presentation of Handel’s Messiah continues. Not only is a King coming, but so is our Shepherd. This sixth chorus reminds us that our Shepherd is “meek and lowly” and will lead us if we follow Him. Commit to Him. Be “yoked” with Him, and you shall find rest “unto your soul.”

Countdown to “The Messiah”: Week 5 of 7

“Glory to God”… If you were an angel, what would you like to say the most? If you’re anything like the angels that appeared to announce Christ’s birth, you’d shout out “Glory to God!!!” Our countdown to our 12/17/17 presentation of Handel’s Messiah continues by looking at the 5th of the 7 choruses.

Countdown to “The Messiah”: Week 4 of 7

“For Unto Us a Child is Born”… Our countdown to our 12/17/17 presentation of Handel’s Messiah continues. In the cantata’s third chorus, the angels appeared to the shepherds saying that they bring “good tidings.” In this fourth chorus, we hear what those tidings are: “For Unto Us a Child is Born”…

PUMC Stepping into Generosity (11/12/17)

PUMC Stepping into Generosity (11/12/17)

We’re “Blessed to be a Blessing.”  That’s the title of a song the choir often sings.  How are we blessed?  Or, maybe more importantly, what or whom do we bless???  In order for us to grow as Christians, to whom do we need to give?  Finance Committee? The Budget? The Church? God? Finance Committee Nah! The Budget Nah! The Methodist Church, inc Nah! God! Yes! But what does that mean? We give to “be partakers in the building of the Kingdom.” But what does THAT...

David Meece Testifies of New Rainbows! (10/14/17)

David Meece Testifies of New Rainbows! (10/14/17)

Renown singer /songwriter David Meece performed “In Concert” at our church on Saturday Oct. 14, 2017. In many ways, it was like any other concert by a “celebrity.” Before the “show”, there was a table full of CDs in the lobby and bashful young ladies had the chance to meet the “star” backstage. When David took the “stage” he opened with a rousing performance of “Raise These Arms,” getting everyone to clap their hands and...

Practicing Extravagant Generosity (10/15 thru 11/11 2017)

Practicing Extravagant Generosity (10/15 thru 11/11 2017)

Unity.  Pulling together to be of one heart and one purpose.  In our church, that purpose is to glorify our Creator-God and to help Him build His Kingdom.  Our goal is to become more like Christ in every facet of our lives. One of the attributes of God is that He is generous… REALLY generous.  Imagine the Son of God somehow squeezing Himself into a human body, living on this earth, and then dying on a Roman cross?  Think about the God who has provided all of your needs throughout your...

Eye Opening Experience! (Camp Meeting, 6/25/17)

Summer!  When the end of May hits the calendar our senses are surrounded with a fresh set of experiences: The smell of burgers on the grill… The chlorine-laden breeze of a pool… The sights of sand and beach…  The smell of sunblock lotion… The quiet splash of whirling lake water as you paddle a canoe.  But to experience all of that, our senses must be open. The speaker at the first service of the 2017 Pitman Camp Meeting was Rev. Bill Wilson, and he focused on our sense...

Pitman Camp Meeting Opens 2017 Season (6/25 – 8/27)

The services are held at 7:30 p.m. in the William (Bud) Moore Auditorium located in the center of the Grove area, and are lead by various pastors and music teams from the Methodist Churches in the area. Here’s the schedule (all services...

PUMC Hosting an Emmaus Encounter (5/11/17)

For the past 20+ years, PUMC members have been blessed by attending a weekend retreat known as the Walk to Emmaus. Unfortunately, because of the rigors of the “rustic” accommodations, many seniors have been unable to even consider going on a weekend.
But now there’s an opportunity to experience Emmaus at our church! This Face to Face models the Walk to Emmaus, but it is presented in our church over four seperate days (no overnight stays!).

God’s Gonna Trouble the Water on Palm Sunday! (4/9/17)

God’s Gonna Trouble the Water on Palm Sunday! (4/9/17)

Both services on Palm Sunday will be led by our choirs, and their message will begin with the announcement that  “God is gonna trouble the Water.”  The services will feature a cantata called “A Journey to Hope.”  So how can “trouble the water”  be a picture of hope??? The Bible relates several accounts of where water was “troubled” to give hope and healing to those who had faith.  Water can be many things.  Water can represent nourishment, or...

God’s Love Story (2/12/17)

Valentine’s Day! Love!!! What is Love? More importantly, what is God’s Love? In this sermon Pastor Jim took a look at the book of Hosea to see a demonstration of what God’s love looks like.
God is crazy in love with you. Will you return that love? Will you accept Him into your heart? He wants to forgive you and begin a relationship with you right now. What does this story in Hosea teach us about that love?

Everybody is a Player on God’s Super Team (2/5/17)

Super Bowl Sunday… Things were a little different in church on this particular sabbath.  Pastor Jim wasn’t wearing his usual clergy robe.  Instead he was trying to look like Jerry Rice with his red 49’ers jersey.  The service listed in the bulletin looked a bit strange too: things like “The Huddle Up”, “A Time Out”, and the “Coin Toss” marked the schedule.  We were surrounded by object lessons, and Pastor Jim’s sermon put them to use,...

New Years Eve Silent Communion (12/31/16)

Milestones such as New Year’s Eve can be helpful reminders of re-assessing your relationship with God.  How have you grown?  How has your faith been tested?  When did you fail to heed God’s call to discipleship?  How can you be a better disciple in the future? Not only do we need to hold each other accountable, but we also need to hold ourselves accountable. Small groups and “Emmaus Reunion Groups” are important accountability tools.  But, we still need to come to the...

Choirs to Present Annual Cantata: Adore (12/18/16)

For the past gazillion years, the choir or choirs at our church have presented a service of worship through words and music (i.e., Cantata). It’s always been presented on the Sunday before Christmas… at 4:15 PM. Yes, 4:15 PM! No clue where that time came from, but… It’s Tradition! It always happens! And so another Christmas is upon us. Tradition! It always happens! But is that all it is??? Habit? Tradition? Christmas isn’t only a tradition; It’s an...

Blue Christmas Service (12/21/16)

Many of us lost loved ones during this year. Some of us lost loved ones years ago, but still feel the emptiness. For any of us, the family traditions of the holidays bring back memories of Christmases past. During this holiday season we are especially aware of those who have walked with us and who are an integral part of those memories; but now they’re gone. December  21 is the longest night of the year, and it’s an  appropriate night to acknowledge the dark times that our paths...
