URGENT ONLY TWO WEEKS UNTIL EVICTION – Flinkstrom/Merling Family (Ashlynn and Carlee from Children’s Sunday School)
Local family looking for rental:
A PUMC family needs help finding an apartment or house to rent.
They are a family of 5. 3 children and 2 are special needs children. 1 with Autism and 1 with Diabetes. The kids are in the Jaffrey school district. The father works in Jaffrey so Keene is too far away.
They are being evicted because the building sold and the new owners want to live in their rental, so they have to be out by Dec 1st.
Contact the church office with questions.
If you would like to help you can make donations:
Online https://www.peterboroughumc.org/inside_worship/online-giving/. Put Ashlynn and Carlee in the message section.
Checks payable to “Peterborough United Methodist Church” with Ashlynn and Carlee in the memo line. Mail to PUMC, 43 Concord St, Peterborough NH 03458.
Our goal is to raise $2,000.


The Church Conference is coming up on the 20th via Zoom. The booklet will be available soon, if anyone needs a printed copy please let the office know.


We should have large print hymnals and bibles available, please keep an eye out for these, they may have gotten mixed into the regular pew bibles. They should be on the first pew for people who need them.


As we prepare our hearts for Christmas, Rolling Ridge invites you for an ONLINE Advent and Christmas Prayer Journey. Each Sunday during the 4 weeks of Advent and 12 days of Christmas, they will offer reflections and contemplative sharing based on the book, “Advent and Christmas Wisdom from Henri Nouwen” at the Vesper Hour from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.
Along with these weekly vesper experiences, they encourage you to journey through this season with a Spiritual Director/Companion and make this an at-home, online directed retreat with six weekly meetings. Weekly spiritual direction is optional, but encouraged to allow you to experience the birth of Christ in a new way this year.
Many of our “Rolling Ridge approved” spiritual directors are offering their services as a gift, so that there is no charge for weekly spiritual direction through this online retreat. Thus, all financial donations for this Advent Prayer Journey will go to support the ministry of Rolling Ridge as a year-end offering.

PRAYERS OF SELAH: 7-Day Devotional Audio/Podcast

The Prayers of Selah Podcasts are seven days of care for your mind, body and spirit. The word “Selah” appears frequently in the Psalms, and opinions differ as to its meaning. Many agree it is a signal, a reminder to pause and reflect. In each of these seven podcasts, they will share a portion of a Psalm, then provide a short meditation with invitations for you to ponder silently on the questions they highlight.
