Harvest Time!

We’ve harvested our pumpkin patch in preparation for our annual visit by the kindergarten and first grade children from the local school. Each year the children come for their first ‘field trip’ of the year to share some stories, enjoy a healthy snack, and take home a small pumpkin! Our sincere thanks to John Baum for planting, cultivating, and harvesting the pumpkin patch for us! We’ve got 40 little pumpkin beauties to share!!

Need a Spiritual Tune Up?

Times are tough and getting tougher, everything costs more, it seems like the whole world is in conflict and confusion. Perhaps you’re feeling sick at heart or just plain tired and down in the dumps. Do you feel like you need a spiritual tune up? Well, here’s your chance!!

On Friday, July 22nd, 2016, the Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church will host a Spiritual Tune Up Revival! Our program will begin at 7 pm and is open to anyone who would like to come and be uplifted in the Spirit. There will be plenty of wonderful music, featuring Erica Mundy on keyboard, drums, and vocals; Rev. Lee Gangaware on saxophone and vocals; Christine Saturno on bass guitar; Jim Wilson on keyboard, violin, and flute, and Pastor Chris Yount on guitar and trombone. The evening’s message, entitled “Tune Up Time”, will be given by Rev. Lee Gangaware. Following this uplifting program, refreshments will be available in our Fellowship Hall. Let’s work together to make His Kingdom Come on Earth! To help do that, plan to make time this summer to refresh yourself in the Lord, and be uplifted in the spirit!

Can’t wait to see you there!
