PUMC Hosts Regional Day of Learning (2/12/17)

Fourteen years ago, a fire destroyed our downtown church building.  It was located in the business district- right in the middle of town.  But it had no parking, and its multiple levels and maze of staircases made it totally “non-accessible.”  Ten years ago we moved into a new “state of the art building.”  It’s located on the edge of town, but its parking lot and accessibility make it well suited to being used for large groups.
