Running on Empty (4/8/18)

Easter is over. All of the plans, dinners, and holidays are finished. It’s time to get back to normal. But what was “Normal” for the disciples? They were totally drained. Worn out by worry and fear. Doesn’t that happen to us? Do we sometimes feel that we’re running on fumes?
Pastor Jim’s service on the 2nd Sunday in Easter 2018 shows us how Jesus fills up our tank.

Superbowl Sunday, Superstrong Suit! (2/4/18)

Sunday February 4, 2018. It’s a date that most of us will remember; it was a big day for PUMC. Pastor Jim returned from his surgery, we celebrated Superbowl Sunday, AND (after church)- we watched our Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots to win their first Super Bowl! But our faith is more than one big day; it’s lived out day to day…

Ash Wednesday Service on Valentines Day! (2/14/18)

We are holding an Ash Wednesday service this year.  It happens to fall  on February 14,which is known for reasons other than Ash Wednesday.  And yet, isn’t God’s offer of salvation an act of love that demands our introspection and repentance?  So instead of a fancy dinner, maybe a service of prayer and worship on the evening of Valentine’s Day really is appropriate.    Here are the details about Wednesday 2/14/18… No Ashes- it will be a service of prayer and reflection...

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)

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...
