PUMC to Celebrate Student Sunday (11/29/15)

United Methodists celebrate Student Day on the last Sunday in November.  Why?  What is Student Sunday and why should students be lifted up? “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.

Can You Say “Hello?”

Is this “something” you can do?  Say “Hello” to Carol Hubbard if you are interested in joining the hospitality...

PUMC has a special connection and appreciation for this Gift of Life.  Several years...
