Methodists Remain United in Mission for Christ!

Bishop Schol held a series of tele-conferences with clergy and laity regarding the recent reports about a proposal which would create a schism in the United Methodist Church. The media reports incorrectly characterized the proposals as decisions. The Bishop fielded a wide range of questions to debunk the rumors and to ensure us that the UM Church will continue to focus on our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the world.

PUMC Helps SERV Bring Peace to Survivors of Violence

One of the offshoots of the fire which destroyed our downtown building in 2003, is that our rebuilt church is a modern facility which can be offered to the many groups needing meeting space.  Being a “community center” and providing meeting space allows us to assist organizations who are providing ministries which go beyond our own expertise.  By partnering with outside organizations in this small way, we have been helping people who are dealing with problems such as addictions,...

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...

Two Billboards Outside of Fellowship Hall (8/22/18)

The first board (closest to the Narthex) holds missions news and is updated by the Missions Committee regularly. The second board, closer to the kitchen displays community news. Often, fliers come in the mail with a request to share the information with the congregation. These get posted on the NEWS bulletin...

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. All of the Christmas cookies were baked… and most were eaten.  All of a sudden we were about to wake up to the Mummers (in Philly, anyway),  New Year’s Day will be upon us, and we’ll be thinking about New Year’s Resolutions.  What can I do in this new...
