Spiritual Care & Development

Growth Group Mini-Season

Our 4-week Growth Group mini-season just finished up, with over 40 people participating! These groups focused on two of our mission priorities: Race and the Environment. One group went through the book Waking Up White, and the other group considered what it meant to “Live Green.” Our next regular season of Growth Groups will begin in September. If you’d like more information about Growth Groups, please contact Pastor Kate, ksweet@peoplesumc.org.

First Monday

Our First Monday group takes a break for the summer but will start up again in September. First Mondays is a gathering of folks aged 50+ who meet for fellowship and fun on the first Monday of each month (September-May), 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. We meet in the Great Room at PUMC for a potluck lunch followed by the program. If you have any questions, or suggestions for programming for 2018-2019, please contact Pastor Kate, ksweet@peoplesumc.org.

Nursing Home Devotions

We are so excited to welcome some new volunteers from the congregation who will begin serving our community in ministry at Sienna Crest and Oregon Manor once-a-month this summer. We are still looking for a few volunteers to help lead devotions at The Beehive, a memory care facility located only a few blocks away from the church. One hour a month can make a big difference in helping to show God’s love to elders in our community! If you are curious about what it could look like to serve in this way, please contact Pastor Kate, ksweet@peoplesumc.org, or Pastor Jason, jmahnke@peoplesumc.org.
