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.

PUMC Library AND Resource Center
The Library Team is constantly adding new books and multimedia resources to our collection, including subjects related to the sermon topics. Stop by room 308 on Sunday to see what’s new! For additional information, or to join the Library Team, contact Rae Carole Armstrong at rca912@gmail.com.
