Latest Happenings

Men’s Winter Retreat
Saturday February 13, 2016

The Men’s ministry groups of Pleasant Grove UMC and Reisterstown UMC will hold their annual winter day retreat on Saturday February 13, 2016 from 8:30AM until 2PM in the PGUMC Social Hall.

This year we will be using “The Land Between” by Jeff Manion, which helps us find God in difficult transitions. Based on the Book of Exodus, we will examine what it is like to live in the desert times of our lives – and examine God’s response to the moaning and groaning that the Israelites shared.

RUMC will be providing the music and PGUMC will lead the study. As in the past years the PGUMC United Methodist Women will provide a delicious hot lunch.

The Call: The Life and Message of the Apostle Paul
Starting January 10th the Adult Study Class will be working with Adam Hamilton’s latest book – The Call.

What would lead a first-century rabbi to travel thousands of miles by sea and by land, to be beaten, imprisoned and ultimately beheaded for his faith? It was a call – a call to turn the world upside down. This is the story of Apostle Paul whose writings have shaped the lives of one-third of the world’s population, a man second only to Jesus in his influence on Christian faith, and whose witness defines what it means to follow Jesus. Adam Hamilton

Join us to reflect upon Hamilton’s words and Paul’s witness – in a video based study program. 9Am on Sunday mornings.

• Come As You Are
• Dress however you like. At Pleasant Grove UMC you’ll see blue jeans and three-piece suits alike.
• Bring the Kids
• We provide an relevant children's education time that runs concurrent with worship after the children and youth are dismissed from the main worship. A children’s sermon is incorporated into the main worship service.
• Fellowship
• Coffee and snacks are part of our Hospitality Hour provided in the Tracey Building immediately after Worship and Sunday School hour.
