What do You Know About Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day.  It comes every year on the 2nd Sunday of May.  How much do you really know about Mothers Day?  First of all, is it “Mother’s Day”, “Mothers’ Day” or “Mothers Day”???   Where do you put the apostrophe?  Or do you even use one?  Google “Mothers Day” and you’ll see all three spellings. So is it: A day for your mother (Mother’s) A day for all mothers (Mothers’) Or a day just named after female...

Or maybe your child is younger.  What do you do when the baby keeps waking you up throughout the night?  What do you do when your son is bullied at school? Where do you turn when...

There’s No Place Like Home (11/1/15)

The Prodigal Father longed for his son to return home.  When the son came to his senses and came home, the Father rejoiced (sang and danced… a we saw in last week’s sermon?).  God wants us to come home to Him! On Sunday 11/1/15, we celebrated our church’s anniversary by holding a single service.  It was like a homecoming as the “9:30 people” worshiped with the “11:00 people.”  Afterwards we celebrated with a luncheon and lots of pictures in the...

Blue Christmas Service (12/22/14)

Many of us lost loved ones during this year.  Some of us lost loved ones years ago, but still feel the emptiness.  For any of us, the family traditions of the holidays bring back memories of Christmases past.  During this holiday season we are especially aware of those who have walked with us and who are an integral part of those memories; but now they’re gone. On Monday December 22 at 7:00 PM we will pause to reflect on loved ones who have passed to eternity.  Even as we celebrate the...

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. ...
