Sheep Surprise Pastor Jim! (10-14-18)

It was Laity Sunday- Pastor Jim was supposed to have the day off.  There were no baptisms, no communion, no tasks that could only be done by an elder.  And so, Pastor Jim joined the congregation as lay people led the music, prayers, and gave the sermon. But there was one small wrinkle to this Laity Sunday; it was being held during October, which is Pastor Appreciation Month.  And so our Christian Education Team took advantage of the situation and surprised our supposedly pew-bound pastor. ...

PUMC Helps Send Mexican Kids to School

One of the ministries we support is a United Methodist Church in La Palmilla, Mexico.  They are a growing church without the financial means to provide the resources needed by their ministry.  For years, we have raised money and sent mission teams to La Palmilla to help them build a new sanctuary.  The construction has finally been completed, and the church dedicated their new sanctuary in 2016. But sending their children to school is another difficulty they have.  In the US we take it for...
