Dear Church Family and Friends,
Please join us Sunday for our worship service with Pastor Thom Demers and his message We Prayed, Now What?
Worship with us on Sunday at 11 am ET in-person or on YouTube at http://bit.ly/joinpumcyoutube. The Sunday worship stream can be found here at 10:55am on Sunday https://youtu.be/HNaqilLdt_U (direct link).
Our scriptures will include Isaiah 40:28-31 and Luke 12:35-40.
The Sunday bulletin is available here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/220717-pumc-order-worship/


Pastor Thom will have office hours Wednesdays 5p-8:30.
He will also be available at the church by appointment Thursdays 6:30p-8:30 and Fridays 6p-8.
If you would like to meet with him at another time, he is available by appointment.
He is always available by phone in case of emergency.
Monday is Pastor Thom’s sabbath.
Pastor Thom’s cell is 774-266-3033. His email is pastorthom@peterboroughumc.org.

The directory has been updated with information for Carol Owen and Pastor Thom. Make sure you download it, as it will be deleted. Get the directory here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Photo-Directory-July-2022.pdf


We are considering leading a youth hike on Gap Mountain on Saturday, July 30 starting at 9 am to pick blueberries. This would be a hike for the older youth (and any adults that want to come along). This hike would be about 1 1/2 miles up a rather steep mountain. Contact Hiel Lindquist if you are interested in participating.


Now that we have the screens and sound system that have increased accessibility, we are adjusting the print bulletin. You may have noticed a larger font. This week we are debuting a streamlined bulletin of one page, which saves paper. This looks very much like the bulletin format we used 5 years ago. All of the information you might need will be on the screens, and can also be accessed in the hymnals, bibles, and communion laminates in the pews. If you have any feedback on the usability of anything related to the service we would be happy to hear it.
