GROW: In Worship

Worship…

AdventWreath-IMG_3880-150x150Worship is a quiet moment where we free our thoughts from ourselves; the things of the world, the stuff we have to do, our worries, our fears.  Instead, we quiet our minds and hearts and focus on God.

Worship doesn’t have to happen in a church sanctuary.  It can come from a car CD player when you allow a line from an inspirational song touch you.  It can happen when your child shows you the innocent love that can only come from God.  It can happen in the quiet of a moonlit night, or during a sunrise or sunset.  Worship can happen during the quiet moments of prayer.

And- yes- worship surely can happen in a church sanctuary.  Worship services are designed to allow you to clear your mind of worldly things while being surrounded by Godly things.  The stained glass windows, acolytes, robes, and alter paraments remind us that we long to be in God’s holy presence.  In this attitude, we are more able to pray, to hear God’s word, and to apply God’s message for us to our lives.

 

In Person Worship

In October of 2020, we created a detailed Safety Plan which allowed us to invite a small congregation to our worship services.  The number of worshipers was limited and reservation was required for each week.

Thankfully, the pandemic has since loosened its grip and we are nearly back to “normal.” There are no restrictions on the attendance, but we are taking some measures to ensure safety.  As the virus changes, our policies adapt.  For the current status, click the below button:

If you can’t make it to PUMC on a Sunday morning, you still have a few opportunities to participate in the worship services… 

First of all, you can watch a Live Stream Simulcast of our worship services.  The Live Stream page also lets you view archived services when we’re not broadcasting.
