Vacation Bible School: Heroes of Faith

9:00 A.M. – 12:00 Noon

Join us for VBS!  This year we will be looking at ‘Heroes of Faith’.  This is a great opportunity for children to discover how some of those people found in the bible are great bible heroes.  Children will also be inspired to realize just how they can be a hero too!

Loops of Love

Although Loops of Love is not currently meeting, please help us from your home by using your hands to help others.  Knit and crochet hats, scarves, and blankets to bring comfort and hope to individuals and families. The group will meet every other week from 6:00 – 8:00 in the hospitality room in the Tracey Building as soon as we are able.

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.
