Pastor's Message

  Dear Friend in Faith,

Mother’s Day is a wonderful celebration at PVUMC. We honor the love of mothers and express our gratitude for our biological and spiritual mothers. Every church I’ve been a part of has women who are spiritual mothers, nurturing faith, caring deeply for those lost or hurting, giving love and encouragement. I see this happen in our children and youth ministry with women who care so deeply for our young people. I see it in our Best Friends in Faith (BFFs) homebound ministry with love that is shared for those who can no longer get to church.

If God is our perfect parent,...
