Dear Church Family and Friends,

Please join us for our Sunday worship service with Reverend Kathleene Card and her message Able to Read The Message at Fifty Miles Per Hour.
Our hymns include All things Bright and Beautiful, and When Our Confidence is Shaken.
Our liturgist will share our scriptures Luke 19:1-10 and Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4.
Our bulletin is available here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/sunday-november-3-2019-pumc-order-worship/


No Men’s Breakfast in November, holidays are coming!


Priscilla and Ron Crowe are once again helping our church source fresh Christmas wreaths for our families and friends! If you would like to help the church on this annual wreath sale, get your orders from friend and business colleagues and fill in the order forms so the church can get the order sent to the wreath distributor! Deadline for orders will be Sunday, November 10.
Order forms will be at the church on Sunday, November 3rd or by looking on the church website. Grab your order form and check out the options! Order and pay when the wreaths arrive at the end of November.


The Sunday School is GROWING! Come and join us as we learn and grow in our faith. We could use the extra help during lessons when we have stories, crafts, songs and discussions. We have a lot of fun and want to share with the congregation what we do. There is a sign-up form on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall. If this seems like it might be for you please see Susan Campbell-Halley for a Volunteer Job Description.
We have been learning from Adam Hamilton’s Simon Peter for several weeks now. As one of the Sunday School teachers I have had the pleasure of leading our group in activities and discussions that have reflected these lessons. It is wonderful to witness the children engage and share their thoughts. As a parent I have had the joy in hearing my son describe to me and explain the lessons taught by Linda and see the joy it brings him to share it with others. I am very proud to be working and learning with these children and I invite anyone who would like to come and join in all that is happening with our youngest members!


MATS is looking for volunteers to help during Hunger and Homelessness Week to man informational tables for 1 or 2 hour shifts. The events are the Conval Craft Fair, Sat Nov 16 10-5, and the Holiday Stroll, Sat Nov 23 10-2. You will have handouts for HHAW, MATS, the Food Pantry, and End 68 Hours of Hunger.
Also if anyone has time to hang flyers around the community that would be very helpful.
Melissa has put a bazillion volunteer hours into this Week and would really appreciate anyone who can help out a little.
If you would like to volunteer you can contact Lisa Rogers (Conval homeless liason and Week organizer, contact the office for contact info).
