Two Wings Helping Angels of God!

Angels of God is a ministry that seeks to help people by providing little used clothing and other household items.  People  can shop the Angels of God “store” (on Broadway in Pitman), pick out what they need, and then “check out”  without paying.  Although not directly connected with PUMC, we have been supporting this important ministry in many ways over the years. Currently, two collections for Angels of God are being made in our church:   Our Angels of God Small...

Thread ‘n Yarn Ministries Extend God’s Love (2/19/17)

Colorful Ministry on Display When we arrived in church on Sunday February 19, the altar rail was draped with a huge collection of beautifully knitted, crocheted and quilted items.  Over 75 of them were laid on the altar so that we could lay hands on them in prayer.  These items are used to extend God’s love, through PUMC, through blankets and shawls, to those who are in need. Each item was lovingly created over the last 6 months by the Hooks ‘n Needles ministry and the Scrappy...

BLAST- Feed and Games! (2/20/17)

Our Youth Group keeps active in many ways.  Sometimes it’s all Fun and Games.  Other times, it’s expressing God’s love through some serious (but fun) service. BLAST celebrated this Presidents Day weekend in typical fashion.  First by having some “Where’s Waldo” fun at the Deptford Mall on Sunday.  And then on Monday by serving breakfast at the New Visions Day Shelter in Camden.   Where’s Waldo? The Deptford Mall is a familiar place for most of us...

PUMC to Host Blood Drive (1/27/17)

On the afternoon of Friday January 27, our Fellowship Hall will be the site of a Red Cross Blood Drive.  Give blood?  Why??? Due to various causes, the blood supply is currently dangerously low. This isn’t about the blood supply across the country, or across the state, or even across the region.  This is about the blood supply in our area hospitals! On Friday January 27 (from 2:00 – 7:00 PM), PUMC will do their part so you can do your part.  If you’re able, consider making an...

Or maybe your child is younger.  What do you do when the baby keeps waking you up throughout the night?  What do you do when your son is bullied at school? Where do you turn when...

“PokeMon Go” Stops by PUMC!

Our church signboard has been chosen as a “PokeStop”! If you’re used to playing the video game “Pokemon Go”, you know what that means. If this is total gibberish to you, we’ll give a quick intro to Pokemon.
Either way, all of us need to keep returning to The Vine for strength.

PUMC to Join with Local Churches for a Community BASH (5/7/16)

Are you ready for a big BASH?  Bash???  It stands for: Believing Acting Sharing Helping Our church (and the Delaware Bay District that we belong to) is seeking to move Gospel out of the church building, engage with the community and make a difference in the lives of individuals.  God’s not contained in “God’s House” (as we call the church), and we don’t want to always hang out inside of our buildings either. So we’re having a “BASH” and stepping...

On Holy Saturday, March 26, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, we will host our 8th annual Easter Egg Hunt.  There will be lunch, a “special presentation,” and (of course) plenty of Easter eggs.  Last year’s Egg...
