Hi Everyone! December 28, 2023
I hope your Christmas was great! I loved having two Christmas Eve services this year. Our pastor planned the morning one and Danny Crego planned the candlelight service. Both were well attended and were so spirit filled. We are always blessed to worship together!
Since this coming Monday is New Year’s Day there will be no Monday Morning Coffee With the Pastor.
Be thinking about who you can invite to church on Sunday, January 7th. It will be an Invite Someone New to Church Sunday. There will not be a potluck following. Instead, we will take all of the Christmas decorations down. I guess that’s an unhanging of the greens? Please plan to attend church that day and help us undecorate. It’s always easier to take stuff down, isn’t it?
The funeral for Carol Bruce will be this coming Saturday afternoon at 2:00 here at PUMC. Please keep her family in your prayers.
Ty Waynetska broke his arm playing basketball a few days ago. He’s working on getting it casted this week. Pray for a complete recovery for Ty.
Carol Stephan asked us to pray for her sister Jenny. She recently had back surgery and now has severe nerve pain. She is pretty miserable so please keep Jenny in your prayers.
My daughter Tess’ boyfriend Trevor’s grandma Sheryl is in ICU in Salt Lake City and has been diagnosed with afib. Please keep Sheryl and her family in your prayers.
Carmen’s cousin Tory has had so much going on and now he is having kidney surgery soon. Please pray for continued healing for Tory and keep his family in your prayers.
On Sunday we learned that this coming Saturday is Marcy Kumagai’s birthday. If you’d like to send her a card, please get in touch with me and I’ll get her address to you. I’d love it if she could receive a bunch of cards! If you are going the store to get a card, get one for Shane too. His birthday is Jan 6th.
We received a nice Christmas card from Ron, Pascal, Dex and Hailey Hershey. They also wish us all a blessed new year. We certainly miss all of our Hersheys!
It was sure good to see our sanctuary fill up on Christmas Eve. Let’s work on it looking that way every Sunday!
I was reminded of this by our pastor Sunday evening: Hope is knowing something is wrong but believing there is still time for God to fix it. Think about that for a few minutes! I hope to see you Sunday.
Happy New Year!!!!!
