Dear Church Family and Friends,

Please join us for our Sunday worship service with Reverend Kathleene Card and her message Believe It or Not.
Our hymns will include Blessed Assurance, O Holy Spirit Root of Life, and Bind Us Together.
Our liturgist Eno Ogo will share our scriptures Genesis 12:1-4a and John 3:1-17.
Our bulletin is available here: https://www.peterboroughumc.org/sunday-march-08-2020-pumc-order-worship/


The first lesson for this bible study has been posted https://www.peterboroughumc.org/the-walk-class-1/
You can do this at your own speed. Classes are on Wednesdays at 7:00pm with Rev Card.
If neither of these times is convenient, you can follow along online on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pumcnh/, our website peterboroughumc.org https://www.peterboroughumc.org/bible-study-the-walk-2020/, or on Pray Act Pray Again https://www.prayactprayagain.org/.
We have a private Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/660873408055320/ you may request to join as well.


Don’t forget that this Sunday, there is a wonderful concert of spiritual music being offered up at the Universalist-Unitarian Church in Peterborough! Our little church is being represented by four choir members! Come on out and support them as they sing their hearts out for the Lord!
Break a leg Laura, Pat, Jenny, and Ken!


MONANDOCK HUNGER WALK – May 2nd – United Church of Jaffrey, NH
A reminder that the church walking team is forming now! If you would like to join the team, please get your name on the team contact sheet. It’s on the bulletin board near the coffee station in the fellowship room. As we get names on the sheet, registration/sponsor sheets will be handed out. This Walk started out four years ago and has slowly been building a following of volunteer groups. Last year, over $10,000 was raised and 100% of that money went to area food pantries and school anti-hunger programs. That’s important help for local folks who have food challenges! Let’s go it a bit better this year! Join our little church’s walking team soon! Many thanks!
Got questions? See Susan Lindquist.


The Soul of Octopus – A Surprising Exploration Into the Wonder of Consciousness – March 24th @ 1 PM – Fellowship Room @ PUMC
PUMC’s book group invites you to join in a discussion of this interesting book! There are multiple copies available for borrowing. See the bag of books and sign-out sheet on the table in the fellowship room on Sunday morning! Enjoy the book and then come to book group chat! Hope to see you there!


The March sign up sheet for fellowship hour is waiting for you to maybe grab a couple friends
and sign on for one Sunday’s hosting. Do it your way – as easy or elaborate as you wish!


We need more helpers for Sunday School! Our one-room-schoolhouse has a few younger kids who really benefit from some one-on-one time, so helpers are very beneficial. You get to glue things and have fun with the kids!


We have some items you can save for us to use for our Messy Church coming up in April. We are collecting plastic bottles (the slightly larger ones, up to liter) and metal or plastic bottle caps.


We have a stack of Wanakee camp programs in the To Share bin in the fellowship hall.
The free Expo Camp is June 20. This free day fills up, register soon. Learn more here:
