We are a Worship+2 church, which means we worship, learn, and serve! Where is God calling you to take the next step in worshiping, learning, or serving? See below for how you can grow.
Potluck Supper to welcome Pastor Jabe and family
PUMC will host a welcome potluck supper for Pastor Jabe, his wife, Amber and kids, Ella, Isaiah and Olivia on Sunday, July 25 at 5 pm. Everyone is invited to share a meal and get to know the Largen family. Please RSVP below and plan to bring a side dish or dessert to share. The church will provide the meat (fried chicken and Boston butt) and drinks.
Current Sermon Series
"Why did you say that, Jesus?" is a question many of us may have had as we were reading scripture or listening to a sermon. Jesus often said things that can be difficult to understand. Join us July 11- August 22 for our newest sermon series as we explore some of Jesus' words on family, money, discipleship, the kingdom of heaven, and more. 
Remote Worship
The early service will continue to be livestreamed and will be available live on Sundays at 8:15am or later on delay.
Nursery Reopens this Sunday
Nursery care will be available beginning next Sunday, July 18 during all worship services for children birth-age 4.

Book Basket for Children
Look for a basket in the narthex tied with balloons this Sunday. In the basket will be books written for children ages 2-9. The books cover topics such as love, diversity, death, heaven, secrets, Jesus and others. They are written for children, but also great for moms, dads, grandmothers, granddads or anyone who is interested in instilling lifelong values for little ones.
Return the books to the basket after reading.
