Important Announcements

Each Saturday at 5:00 pm

The Gathering Table is an interactive, inclusive, family friendly worship service where food and faith meet.  We welcome doubters, new believers, and those who have had a difficult relationship with traditional worship.  We hope to see you on Saturdays at 5:00 P.M.

Sermon Series - Grateful Hearts

Sunday 10:30

Studies have shown that people who live with a sense of thanksgiving report that they are far happier than those who do not. As a faith community, we know that we have been blessed and that it is important to give thanks to God. It is also integral to our well-being to express our gratitude to one another. It is good to share our feelings of thanksgiving to those  people who have made a difference in our lives. That is why we are going to focus on the act of giving thanks.

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.
