PUMC Using Daffodils to Fight Cancer! (3/19/17)

Spring is arriving!  And one of the first tastes of the new season is the emergence of those yellow flowers through the soil.  Daffodils!  They’re beautiful, they are harbingers of warmer weather, and- they can be used to fight one of the deadliest diseases afflicting mankind; Cancer.  We’re selling mini pots of daffodils to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The daffodil pots are being sold for $10 each.  A nice round number.  But note that we’re able to purchase...

Women to Make the Super Bowl Something to Look Forward To! (2/7/16)

February 7, 2016 will probably be a pretty normal day for Philadelphia Eagles fans.  On that Sunday, the NFL’s two best teams will play for the championship Lombardi trophy.  But, it’s extremely unlikely that the Eagles will be one of those teams! But that doesn’t mean that “Superbowl Sunday” can’t be a super day for us. The Mary circle (of our United Methodist Women’s fellowship) is inviting everyone to leave the Superbowl cooking to us:  We will...
