Pastor Mike and Karen have arrived!!

Well, we’re off to a great start! We welcomed Pastor Mike and Karen, and some of their family and friends, at the worship service Sunday morning. He let us know who he is…but more importantly what he is…a man who is a disciple of Jesus Christ! He invited us all to join with him to glory in the Lord’s grace and love. The coffee hour was well attended and enjoyed by everyone! We’re glad you’re with us Pastor Mike and we look forward to your guidance as we travel our road of faith together.

PVUMC in the annual July 4th Parade

“New pastor in town” read one of the banners that made up the PVUMC group of marchers! We welcome Pastor Mike and Karen to Pleasant Valley and we’re looking forward to getting to know them better as the days go by. There was a great group of marchers this year…and outstanding music to help move everyone forward. Thanks to Angela and all the helpers who helped us put ‘our best foot forward’ on this lovely hot day!

In addition, please note the time change for the Sunday service, which is now 9:30am.

We invite you to join us this Sunday for the worship service and the special coffee hour to welcome Pastor Mike and Karen to the Valley.

Farewell to Pastor Lee and Polly Gangaware

This Sunday, June 23rd, will be Pastor Lee and Polly’s final worship services with us at PVUMC. Please join us at either the 8am service or the 9 am service. There will be a shortened service at 9am to allow time for Pastor Lee and Polly to share time with us at a special coffee hour. Come and wish them well as they continue their journey of faith! We’re gonna miss them!
