Happy Thanksgiving!
Advent Season Starts on Sunday! – Wreath Sale Pick-up on Saturday, November 27th Wreaths, Swags, and Bows will be ready for pick-up at the church on Saturday morning from 10:30 AM – 1 PM If you’d like to swing by the church, we’ll be here, sorting wreaths and bows and collecting your payments for your wreath sales! If you’re unable to come by the church on Saturday, you can pick wreaths up on Sunday after the church service. Be prepared to make checks payable to “PUMC” and memo the check “wreath sale.” Many thanks!
Some exciting news concerning wreath pick-up day! Our new interim pastor, Pastor Todd Layton will be stopping in to meet and greet as many folks as possible before his first service date of December 5th. If you’d like to schmooze with the wreath folks and Pastor Todd, stop in before 12 PM. We’ll have some brownies in baggies and some hot cocoa for sipping.
We’ll also have some greens and winterberry for decking out the front of the church and perhaps for an everlasting bouquet for the sanctuary.
Hope to see you on Saturday!!!
