Confirmation

confirmationThis week marks a rite of passage for our 2015 confirmation class.  34 6th graders are set to be confirmed as full members of Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church.  As we prepare to send them on with our prayers and support, I hope that each of you will take a moment to remember your confirmation day, or the day you joined the church and promised to support the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

Are you still praying for your church?

Are you present in weekly gatherings (worship services, youth group, small group/bible study)?

Are you giving to your local church out of your talents and your resources?

Are you serving those around you, both inside PHUMC and outside?

Does your character reflect Christ to others?

This week is an opportunity for all of us to renew our own vows to Christ’s body-or perhaps make them for the first time.  Join us this Sunday in the 9am services to celebrate these confirmands.

All of the Things.

  • Methodist Family Health service opportunity – Meet in Jay’s office at 2pm this Sunday to plan worship for MFH!
  • OMP – if you have not paid in full or turned in your paperwork for OMP this summer, the time is NOW!  Also, be on the look out for a packing list and a special OMP training class-more info in the next 2 weeks!
  • Y15 – Youth 2015 final payment is due by June 15th.  If you have questions regarding your balance email jwilliams@phumc.com

Yo’ Mama

mom tattooNot everyone in the world has a mom, but almost everyone has a female in their life who has helped shape their character or influenced them in a positive way. This Mother’s Day Sunday is your opportunity to find that woman and thank her!  (Of course we should be doing this more than once a year.)  There will be no youth this Sunday evening.  We encourage you to spend time with your families and especially the women who love you best.

Seniors 2015Thank you to all the seniors and families who helped phyouth ministries honor our 2015 graduates yesterday during the worship services and at our noon banquet.  I speak for the whole church body when I say we are anxiously awaiting the great things you will do and that God will do with and through you.  Remember:  you are always welcome home to PHUMC as often or infrequently as you make it back!

Confirmands:  If you have not called phyouth ministries to schedule your pastoral interview, please do so IMMEDIATELY!  You must be interviewed in order to be confirmed.  If you would like your confirmands picture to be in the Tower, send a headshot to cenglade@phumc.com by 3p.m. Tuesday (tomorrow!), otherwise they will not be pictured.

I’m not saying Sunday’s Seniors and Seniors Bingo Night with the Primetimers will be as intense as Gladys looks here…

Well, maybe that’s exactly what I’m saying.  Our wonderful Primetimers are excited to be playing bingo with our phyouth this Sunday night to celebrate the graduating class of 2015, but they don’t like to lose!  Come and spend some time getting to know the wisdom and grace of a different generation in our church family.  Sunday night 5:30pm, Wesley Hall.

Celebrate Creation

creation care

As Wesleyan (Methodist) Christians we believe that we are responsible to help care for all of God’s creation–people, animals, and the planet we inhabit.  By giving us dominion, God has given us the gift and charge of promoting sustainability.  I won’t lie-this is not (historically) Christianity’s strongest trait, but we are getting better!  To celebrate God’s good creation phyouth plans to spend time out in it!  On Sunday April 26th, 2015 phyouth will meet at Allsopp Park (instead of PHUMC) at 5:30pm for food and fun!

  • OMP – If you are registered for one of our OMP camps, we need your final payment and paper work by April 29th.

Plug in!

Hallelujah, Christ is Risen!  But that’s not where the year ends.  Even though life is crazy busy and our schedules are crammed to the brim, I encourage you to make a point to be in worship and in fellowship each week.  It’s tempting to prioritize other things before our relationship with God and with our Christian brothers and sisters, which is why it’s that much important that you keep your focus on the One who gives us life.  Make it to small group, go to worship with your family, come eat and worship with phyouth on Sunday-however it works, stay plugged in!

This Sunday

9am Worship

10am Sunday School
