Our building is located at what’s been called the “Gateway to Pitman”; we’re right on the edge of town, and much of the traffic entering Pitman passes our building.   Across the street is our favorite Heritages Dairy Store, and down the street is the Bright Beginnings preschool and

Total Turf…..  We’re surrounded by homes on streets like Broadway, Spruce, Elm, and Albert.  We’re part of the Pitman community.  And like any welcoming neighborhood, we like to “open our front door” and spend some time with our neighbors. 

We don’t have an official “Let’s Spend Time with Our Neighbors” committee, but many at PUMC have created “ministries” which do just that.  Our Sunday Worship Services and other ministries are always open to anyone, but sometimes we still just want to open up and just be part of our neighborhood. 

Our “Neighborhood Block Parties” are open to anyone (regardless of where you live!).  Here are some of the events that we offer…

Easter Egg Hunt

This is one of the highlights of the year.  Sometime near Easter (March or April or wherever it falls), we open our building and grounds to kids of all ages for an Easter Egg Hunt.   In addition to the eggs scattered over our lawn, we usually offer food and entertainment.

Here’s an article about one of our Egg Hunts…


Trunk or Treat

When October rolls around, we open up our parking lot to a display of cars and vans with trunks decorated with lights, candy, and any other crazy thing the participants dream up.  We also open up our Fellowship Hall for some games and food.    

Here’s a glimpse of a recent Trunk or Treat…


Christmas Marketplace

Our annual Christmas Marketplace is an opportunity for local crafts people to display and sell their items.  And, the proceeds go to help our Missions Projects.

Here’s a look at the Christmas Marketplace…


“Community Center”…

In addition to the “fun” events for the family, we also open our doors for the community.  Here are a few of the ways we’re offering our facilities to our neighbors:

  • Voting:  Our Fellowship Hall is one of Pitman’s polling places.
  • Blood Drives:  The American Red Cross holds blood drives in our Fellowship Hall
  • Flu Shots:   Every Fall, Gloucester County holds a flu clinic in Fellowship Hall
  • Support Groups:  Several Support Groups meet in our building.
