Bible Reading Plans for 2017!

When the “publish” button was clicked for this post, we were in that Christmas Holiday gap between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.  The gifts were wrapped, placed under the tree, and then unwrapped.

Pray Daily for Our Missionaries

Pray for Our Missionaries! How often have you greeted a missionary who spoke at our church on a Sunday and promised to “keep them in our prayers” when they return to the mission field?  For those of us who have never been a “Missionary” in the traditional sense,  it’s difficult to imagine their needs.  It’s hard to know what to pray for. Our missions offerings are sent directly to the missionaries that PUMC helps to support. And a portion of UMC Shared...
