His Love Makes no Sense!

Members of our BLAST Youth group recently returned from a week at Malaga Camp.  The theme of the week was God’s love.  How can God send His Son to dies for us and continue to love us even when we keep on rejecting Him and breaking away to do our own thing? One of the people attending the camp wrote the following… “His love makes no sense.”   I turned to the woman next to me (who later would become a new friend) and cried, “Why does Jesus love me so much? I don’t deserve...

PUMC Hosting an Emmaus Encounter (5/11/17)

For the past 20+ years, PUMC members have been blessed by attending a weekend retreat known as the Walk to Emmaus. Unfortunately, because of the rigors of the “rustic” accommodations, many seniors have been unable to even consider going on a weekend.
But now there’s an opportunity to experience Emmaus at our church! This Face to Face models the Walk to Emmaus, but it is presented in our church over four seperate days (no overnight stays!).

The topic of this year’s retreat was “Being a Man with a Mission”, and we explored how our “mission” plays out in our personal, family and church lives. Retreats aren’t just “book learning” or...

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...

BLAST Getting Ready to Advance! (1/13/17)

Our Youth Group (BLAST) is ready to take off into their Midwinter Advance.  What’s the Midwinter Advance?  First of all, it is probably more commonly known as a “retreat,” but we  always want to look forward so we’ve latched on to the now cliche term “Advance” instead of “Retreat.”  The Advance will be held at America’s Keswick in Whiting, NJ during the weekend of January 13-15. In preparation for this weekend, our youth have been raising...

Acolyte Ministry Training (9/20/16)

Worship is nothing but a jumble of notes and words unless the Holy Spirit is there.   In Matt 18:20, Jesus said:  “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Acolytes help us recognize and celebrate God’s presence among us during our services of worship.  The symbolic lighting of the altar candles ushers in the spirit of worship.  And at the end of the service, the “unlighting” of the candles and removing of the flame reminds us that...
