"We seek to love the Lord God by introducing people to His Son, Jesus Christ, and helping this relationship grow."
Rev. Steven Taylor


Every Sunday at 10:15 a.m.

Our Sunday morning worship service reflects both the richness of our Methodist tradition and our desire to
be open to the Holy Spirit.  We strive for the "warmth and dignity" John Wesley thought essential to worship.

We seek to blend traditional and contemporary worship forms so that people of all backgrounds and
generations can experience the presence and power of God in their lives.

Our worship service is designed so all ages feel welcome and part of our service.

Youth and children have an important place in our family worship services.  A children's message is offered each week.  Youth regularly contribute to worship services and events.  Nursery care is offered for infants through kindergarten-aged children during the worship service.

We have several groups of music ministry in our church to enhance our worship.

Celebration Choir:
The Celebration Choir leads musical worship during each Sunday service.  Rehearsal is every Wednesday at 7 p.m. (mid-September through mid-June).  Anyone from 7th grade and older is invited to join. No experience necessary.  A desire to make a joyful noise is all that is required.

Praise Team:

Our Praise Team opens each worship service with upbeat praise and worship music. They rehearse each Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. year round. 


The Crossmen:

A group of talented men (and one lady piano virtuoso) from PUMC came together to form a gospel quartet.  In addition to blessing our congregation with awesome four-part harmony, the Crossmen are often invited to share their talents and testimony at area churches and concerts.

Children from Kindergarten through 6th grade contribute an active part in worship as Acolytes who symbolically bring in the "Light Of Christ" for each service and then symbolically encourage us to take the "Light of Christ" out into the world for the week.

Hospitality Team:

Greeters & Ushers are always happy to welcome and assist as needed all who enter our doors for worship.
