Summer Camps
Plantation UMC offers summer camps for age groups 3 through 12. The children don’t go off site on field trips. Instead, the field trips come to our campus! Every day is a different activity for the kids… from Rock Walls to Game Rooms, from Hapkido to Water Slides. Payment is flexible. You can pay by the week or by the day, so you don’t have to pay for days you don’t need! Camps begin June 11th! Contact us for more details!

Congregational Care
Caring for our family of faith is an important aspect of our community life at Plantation UMC. However, we can only respond to the need or concern if we know it exists! If you, or anyone you know, has need of congregational support, please let us know by calling the church office at 954-584-7500 or sending email to sherlain@pumc.net. Thank you so much!

Next Habitat for Humanity Work Day | September 15
Habitat for Humanity seeks to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. They offer a “hand up” not a “hand out” to low to very low-income families! The homes are built primarily by volunteers, and we at Plantation UMC have loved being a part of several homes over the years! No construction experience is necessary, as skilled construction staff and skilled volunteer leaders will provide training and supervision. All tools, safety equipment and building materials needed for the day will be provided.

Chapel Bells Seek New Ringers
Our Chapel Bell choir is seeking new ringers! Now under the direction of Plantation UMC member Chris Cary, it’s the perfect time to try bells for the first time! No prior bell experience necessary. Can you count to 4? Do you know what quarter notes, eighth notes, and half notes are? Then you could play bells! If you’re interested, contact Pastor Kathy at knolasco@pumc.net.
