TRUNK OR TREAT
Please join us on Saturday, October 31 at the Southwick home in Jaffrey. Setup is at 2:30, Trunk or Treat begins at 3 pm.
If you would like to give out candy please have it individually packaged, rather than in a bowl to grab. We expect about 20 kids.
We will be socially distanced with masks required.
Please let Grammy Linda know if you are planning to participate.
COMMUNION SUNDAY – November 1st –
This coming Sunday, Rev David Pierce will be officiating for Communion Sunday and delivering the weekly message. Jenny Pierce will be offering the Time With the Children message. Many thanks to David and Jenny for helping with the service!
Be reminded that communion host is available at the church. There are small bread and juice cups in the fellowship hall with bags for transporting. Just stop in and take what you need. If you are unable to get communion host, you can use bread and juice from your own pantry for the Communion service.
2020 PUMC HOLIDAY FAIR CANCELLED
The consensus of last Monday evening’s ZOOM meeting attendees was to step back from trying to orchestrate an on-line Holiday Stroll for PUMC. The logistics for building an event on our church website and FB page was too daunting a task and there was concern that there would not be enough crafty items, knitted and sewn items to make a sale feasible. The obvious lack of home baked items would also take away from our usual bake table and apple pie sale. SO… keep calm and continue crafting for next year’s Stroll and we’ll come back stronger than ever!

In the meantime, though, don’t lose heart! Priscilla and Ron Crowe are spearheading the annual wreath sale and you have until November 10th to order your wreaths for your front door, barn door, back porch, et cetera!
