  • June 22, 2015: Flooding, Flooring & Capital Campaign

    I plan to speak to the capital campaign, but to start I need to address the issue of the flood and the carpet removal. Four weeks in a row during May, the church offices flooded. Two Sundays in a row and then on the last Friday of the month, we had about half an inch of water on top of the carpet in both Linda’s and Barbara’s offices, as well as a soaked ministry center and water in the glass hallway in two different places. We had a legion of church members who responded in every situation to sop up... Read More »

  • June 8, 2015: It is Now Time…

    As I write this, my last Views column, it has begun. We have already shared a few of my “lasts.” Tuesday night Bible study has concluded. So has Wednesday Women’s Bible Study. With that group, we have now had the last year-end meal and communion at my house. It has become a tradition with that group. Everyone seemed quieter than usual. Perhaps we didn’t quite know what to say. I have also had my last official day in the office which means my last lunch with the rest of the staff. It is not over quite yet, but the time... Read More »

  • June 8, 2015: Turn and Face the Strange… Ch-Ch-Changes

For some of us there are changes in our homes, and there will be changes in the church offices. Due to almost constant flooding in May, we are taking out the carpet this weekend. But that isn’t the only change. Since our business manager and office administrator have to pack up their offices, they decided to announce their retirements before they planned on it. They were going to wait until later in the summer to... Read More »

    After listening to Rev. Dana Norton tell of her first days at PPUMC – she gave us a glimpse of what our new Rev. Sara Hardaway might feel on her first days. Just a suggestion. Let’s give her a sampling of the warmth and friendliness that PPUMC is known for….we can welcome and introduce ourselves by writing Welcome Notes. You may choose to write on your own paper or pick up a PPUMC informal in the foyer or Ministry center.
