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!).

Learn how to Reach Out this Summer (7/6/16 – 8/17/16)

In Hebrews, Paul (or whoever “the writer” is), commanded us to: “…run with perseverance the race marked out for us. ”  To be able to “run with perseverance” we need to train.  A runner trains his body through appropriate physical activity.  But for Christians to run the race we need Spiritual Training.  That comes mainly from the Bible,  but it also comes from our fellowship with other Christians.  We learn from each other and from each others...

Pastor’s Ponderings: Keeping Your Spiritual Blades Sharp

The following devotion was submitted by Pastor Jim on November 28, 2014…     Greetings Friends: PLEASE READ: Ecclesiastes 10:10 “If the ax is not sharp and he does not make it sharp, then he must use more strength. Wisdom helps one to do well” (NLV).   The past couple of days I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic and for some reason I recalled cutting the grass when I was a boy. Back then we did not have a motorized lawn mower. Dad used to have one of those manual...

What are You Following?

Today (August 14, 2014), the following message was posted on our church signboard:   FOLLOW US @PITMANUMC FOLLOW GOD @PRAYER OK.  Admittedly, this might be a shameless attempt to bring in more followers to our church Twitter account.  People follow Twitter accounts to read Tweets- short comments about whatever’s on the tweeter’s mind. Even if you’re not into Twitter, aren’t we all “Following” something throughout the day?  When somebody cuts you off, an...

PUMC Members Raise Awareness of Autism (4/27/14)

PUMC members John and Heidi Hoenge were both athletic growing up, and so when their son was born they expected that he would in some way excel in sports.  But, their thinking was too small.  God had plans that were bigger than football or basketball; their son was born with autism. April is National Autism Awareness month, and the Hoenges shared their story during the service on April 27.  They reminded the congregation that we are all part of the big jigsaw puzzle of God’s creation. ...
