June Edition of The Link now online!

The June edition of our church newsletter, The Link, is now available online. To view, click The Link tab at the top of the page.

This month we will bid farewell to Pastor Lee and Polly Gangaware. They have served in Pleasant Valley going on 3 years and we’re sad to see them leave. If you would like to say good-bye to them, their last Sunday at PVUMC will be on June 23rd. Please come and join us for worship at either the 8am or 9am services.

God has been working to fulfill the needs here at PVUMC and will be sending someone to guide us along in our faith very soon. He will be with us beginning the first Sunday in July. When more details are available, we’ll post them here. In the meantime, know that our God is ever faithful and will continue to provide for all our needs.
