Blessing of the Critters
Bring your (leashed) furry friends to the Blessing of the Critters Open House on Saturday, May 14 between 6-7:30pm on the PUMC front lawn! There will be a blessing, treats, music and games!
Join us for Worship
The Easter season, from Easter through Pentecost, is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. The early church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, witness to the resurrection- and we are invited to do the same. Join our celebration as the light of Christ rises in glory, overcoming the darkness of sin and death!  
Pinehurst UMC now has a Hearing Loop. The system provides clear sound directly to hearing aids with a t-coil. If you do not have a t-coil, a limited amount of headsets are available during worship.
