If you regularly serve at PBUMC, we have a gift of appreciation for you! Please pick up your PBUMC tumbler in the lobby of the Activities Center throughout the week. Thank you for serving Christ and loving our community in so many ways.
A Note of Thanks

Easter is such a beautiful celebration, and the flowers add to it greatly! This year, Bailey's Produce and Nursery graciously helped us in a pinch! We appreciate their kindness and generosity, which made our Worship space beautiful!

Also, many thanks to the team of willing servants who handled the ordering, retrieving, and setting up (Jeannie, Jerry, Ken, & Steve)!
PBUMC Shuttle
We now have a shuttle available to transport you from the back parking lots to the side door of the Activities Center each Sunday before and after worship! We hope you enjoy this helpful new addition to PBUMC!

Backpack Ministry: Help Needed
Beginning April 19, we need extra hands to help pack food bags for several of our local schools. These bags go home each weekend with children who are in need. The backpack ministry will meet to assemble the bags each Tuesday morning at 9:15am (for approximately 30 minutes) until June 1. Thank you to our Young Women's Bible Study group for packing bags throughout the school year! Their study concludes tomorrow and any additional help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for giving!
Through the generosity of PBUMC and the proceeds from the Redemption Store, Vivian Johns, our community missionary, gave 65 families (including over 100 children) an Easter meal and Easter baskets.

We would also like to thank Winn Dixie for their assistance with distribution.
