We are excited to let you know about an event we are hosting at Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church on Saturday, December 4th from 8:30am to 2:00pm. It will be a Silent Auction, Bake Sale, Tag Sale. Here’s a great chance for you to continue your holiday shopping with the chance to win one of the donated items we’ll offer…from themed baskets to gift cards, etc…we’ll have a good variety of items to interest you! There will be a Bake Sale room where you can purchase some holiday goodies, and, of course, the Tag Sale room where you can spy a treasure. We’re working hard pulling everything together and we hope you’ll stop in to say hello and see what may suit your fancy in our sale rooms! In the meantime, we want to wish you all a blessed holiday season with family and friends.
The November edition of the church newsletter, The Link, is now available online. Follow the links to see what’s happening this month. Our church is slowly getting back to “normal”, although the mask mandate is still in effect. We are now able to gather in Fellowship Hall after the Sunday services for a small coffee hour…but more importantly for time in conversation to catch up with our church family. “Blest be the ties that bind…” We need to hold our congregation in prayerful consideration in the coming months and continue to build upon those blessed ties that bind!
Everyone is welcome to come join us in worship to our Lord and we’d love to see you there!

Although we continue to follow the Covid guidelines of masking and social distancing, our church activities have begun to return. Sunday School is now in session and a modified coffee hour is available following the worship service on Sunday mornings. On Tuesday mornings at 10am the Prayer Group has begun to meet again. As the year continues it is our hope that more of the familiar activites that have bound us together in the past will return. We invite you to come worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10am and experience the comfort and peace of “coming home’ to the Lord’s House.

Sunday School begins on September 12th. The children join with everyone in the sanctuary to begin our worship service. Following the Children’s Sermon, the kids will go out to the classroom for Sunday School. We invite you to bring your children to church at 10am and while you enjoy the worship service, your children will build their own personal relationship with God and His Son, Jesus!
