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!).

PUMC Hosts Regional Day of Learning (2/12/17)

Fourteen years ago, a fire destroyed our downtown church building.  It was located in the business district- right in the middle of town.  But it had no parking, and its multiple levels and maze of staircases made it totally “non-accessible.”  Ten years ago we moved into a new “state of the art building.”  It’s located on the edge of town, but its parking lot and accessibility make it well suited to being used for large groups. We are blessed to be a blessing! ...

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...
