iCare Vacation Bible School

Join us for Vacation Bible School June 25 – June 28 from 9 a.m. to noon!  Each day we will have singing, dancing, Bible time, craft time, outdoor playtime and a snack.

The iCare series is all about helping children to see that it is important to not only care about our own feelings, but the feelings of others.  Emojis are a way we communicate our own feelings, but they also help us to understand the feelings of others.

What is the Least I can Believe and Still Be a Christion

Each Sunday at 10:30 am

 Are you concerned about what you really have to believe to be a Christian?  There are so many terms and opinions around that cause us confusion.  For examples “Christians are intolerant and judgmental.  Christians are self-righteous and take the Bible literally.  Christians can’t believe in evolution and also believe in the power of a creator God.  And the list goes on.  Come and hear how the message of a Risen Christ transcends all of the concerns about being a Christian.

Mission and Repair Ministry

Mission and Repair Ministry

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus emphasizes that his disciples have to care for the poor and disadvantaged. We have embraced this mission! Utilizing the skills of members of the congregation and friends of PGUMC, we have embarked on a multi-faceted mission and repair ministry. Hopefully you will find a mission project that will fit your desires and skills to serve Jesus through Pleasant Grove UMC.
