Dear Church Family and Friends,

Please join us for our Sunday worship service with Reverend Kathleene Card and her message In Preparation for Lent: Embracing Transfiguration.
Our hymns will include Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, Immortal, Invisible God Only Wise, and Awesome God.
Our liturgist Arnie Johnson will share our scriptures Exodus 24:12-18 and Mathew 17:1-9.
Our bulletin is available here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/sunday-february-23-2020-pumc-order-worship/


Easter candy is appearing in the stores and that means it’s time for our Easter Basket missions project! We will be collecting contributions of candy and other Easter basket goodies for the children of families served by MATS (Monadnock Area Transition Shelter), SFTS (Shelter from the Storm), and New Life Home (residence program for moms struggling with substance abuse). We will be collecting candy starting on March 1. Look for the box in the fellowship hall. We’d also like to include some stickers or coloring books in the baskets, so if you’d like to contribute money to purchase books, please mark the check or envelope for Easter baskets. We are collecting contributions through Palm Sunday, April 5. Thank you!
