At 10:00 a.m. Rev. Dana Norton and Dr. Bill La Barr will hold a communion worship service at Emeritus for residents and their families at Emeritus.
A “Christmas Service of Hope and Remembrance” will be held in the sanctuary at 2:30 p.m. The Reverend Dana Norton, associate pastor, will lead this special service designed to minister especially to those who have experienced grief or loss this past year.

Our 11:00 p.m. service will be a Meditative and Reflective Service of Communion with Dr. La Barr preaching. This service will be prayerful in nature, as together we await the arrival of Christmas Day. No Child Care.
PPUMC offers a wide range of worship opportunities to help you and your family prepare to welcome again the Christ child into our world.
