Sermon Series - Malachi

Each Sunday at 10:30 am

The book of Malachi shows us what happened when God’s people stop worshiping God from their hearts, making religion just routine. After God returned Judah from exile to their land, they fell into the danger of taking God for granted and pursuing their own selfish desires. Malachi spoke words of warning to Judah, calling them back to sincere worship and obedience.

Beginning October 30, 2019

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.
