As Methodists, we are called to cultivate more disciples and deeper disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and world. You are invited to join us on the journey.

This week

Join Us for Worship on Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost remembers the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples, breathing life into the beginning of the Church. Jesus' promise that God would send the Holy Spirit was fulfilled. The color red symbolizes the fire of the Holy Spirit, which the disciples saw above each other’s heads as the Spirit descended. Wear red as you join us to celebrate Pentecost this Sunday!

Dear PUMC Congregation,

I really want to thank you for your support and for all of the items you pitched in to buy for me. Everyone that is a part of this church community is truly a blessing to me. Even when I go off to college knowing that this church and its members are thinking of me makes me very happy. Thank you for your prayers.

Sincerely, Nathan Hill
