Dear Church Family and Friends,

Please join us for our Sunday worship service with Reverend Kathleene Card and her message Make up Your Mind Not to Worry Beforehand.
Our hymns include All Things Bright and Beautiful, As the Deer, and Now Thank We All Our God.
Our liturgist Matt Keenan will share our scriptures Malachi 4:1-2a and Luke 21:5-19.
Our bulletin is available here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/sunday-november-10-2019-pumc-order-worship/


Frozen apple pies will be available this weekend for $12.00 each. Pat, Carol or Wendy can take the orders.


Holiday Stroll is nearly here and many helpers are needed.
The Stroll is on Saturday November 23, from 9 to 2. Volunteers are needed on Wednesday 20, Thursday 21, and Friday 22, from 4 to 7, and Saturday 23 all day for setting and clean up.
Sign-up sheets are in the hall by the kitchen window. If you cannot sign up in person please call Carol Owen at 525-4125, Susan Lindquist at 585-6923, or Karen Keenan at 933-3189.
Baked goods are also needed and may be dropped off at the church on Friday 22, 5 to 7, or before 7:30 on Saturday. Please add a suggested price as you know the ingredients.
Food is needed for the Cafe luncheon. Ciabatta rolls, muffind, cookies (no nuts). Also apple cider. Call Karen Keenan if you will donate food or help serve.
Gently used Christmas decorations are welcome and any crafts you have made.
A successful Holiday Stroll can happen if we all join together to work. It’s a fun day of fellowship and a benefit to our church.
