CHOIR CONTINUES!! The PUMC choir plans to continue practices and sing once a month.  Again, whether you have sung in the choir previously, or you’d just like to test the waters, you are welcome to be a part of a group that loves to ‘make a joyful noise’ and glorify God through music!  Remaining practice this month is this Wednesday, May 22nd at 7:00pm.  Practices in June are the 5th & 26th.  Contact Kathy Hudson if interested.

HONOR PARENTS & HELP UMYH:  United Methodist Youth Home is offering you a new way to honor your loved one(s) while also helping UMYH assist the at-risk youth they serve, by teaming with “Walking for Dreams Evansville” family & pet walk on the Evansville riverfront [May 19th] to raise money to support their services!  There are a number of ways you can participate, including donating in honor or memory of a parent, walking in the event yourself, starting a team of your own to walk, or by being a sponsor of the event (various levels).  For more information see Melissa in the church office.

2019 LAITY MANUSCRIPT CONTEST:  The Indiana Conference’s Lay Leadership Team offers an opportunity to express thanks and praise to God by asking laity to submit an original sermon manuscript for judging. This contest is open to all lay people in the Indiana Conference. Following the theme of Indiana’s 2019 Annual Conference Session, the theme for this year’s manuscript contest is “From Water to Witness,” based on Ephesians 4:4-5. The winning sermon manuscript will be presented during the Annual Conference’s Laity Session on Thursday, June 13. Manuscripts should be no more than 15 minutes in length. Entries will be judged based on creative and original development of the theme, but may be eliminated due to length. Manuscripts need to be sent by email to or mailed to Anthony Swinger, 1309 Alderly Rd., Indianapolis, IN 46260. The manuscript must be accompanied by a cover sheet or letter that includes the writer’s name, address, phone number, email address, local church name and district. Entrants are asked not to include any personally identifying information in the manuscript itself since it will be assigned a number and judged anonymously. ALSO THIS YEAR: We will have an additional designated winner who is an emerging leader. If you are middle school, high school, or college age, please indicate “Emerging Leader” on the cover page of your submission. All entries must be received no later than May 24th. The winner will be notified by June 5. For additional information about the contest, please contact Anthony Swinger, Central District Lay Servant Ministries Coordinator, at or 317-372-4991.

NO MOUNTAIN MISSION PICK UP IN JUNE:  We will be collecting for our Free Back to School Yard Sale over the course of the summer, so there will be no Mountain Mission Truck at PUMC in June.  If you have items to donate, please bring them to the FLC attached garage beginning in July.  Remember to label any & all boxes, bags, etc. “for Free Yard Sale” as other items are stored in the garage and we don’t want to overlook or mistake any items.  Thanks for your continued support of the Free Yard Sale. So many families have been touched by this outreach ministry.

CAMP:  Church camp creates opportunities for your child to discover the gospel, explore big questions, journey on discipleship steps, and find the impact of missional living alongside others.  United Methodist Camps range from Day Camp to Tribal Camp to Adventure Camp and more!
