OUR MISSION: We seek to be an inclusive Christian community that affirms faith in God and spiritual growth with a commitment to justice and stewardship of God’s creation.
The PPUMC 2016-17 Community Concert Series is back for it’s seventh year! This series features one free concert per month from September 2016 thorugh May 2017. Donations are accepted to support a multitude of area nonprofits and community organizations, with 100% of proceeds going back into the community. Next up, performing for the first time in the series is Tjärnblom on Saturday, November 19 at 7 pm in the PPUMC sanctuary. Swedish for “woodland lake flower”, Tjärnblom is a Scandinavian-style string band featuring a beautiful blend of Nyckelharpa, Octave Mandolin and Harmonium. The concert will benefit Families Moving Forward, working to end homelessness one family at a time. A program of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, Families Moving Forward offers families experiencing homelessness hospitality, emergency shelter and a path to home with support for stability.

Love Grows Here!
Prospect Park United Methodist Church serves as a base camp that provides spiritual and intellectual food for a vibrant Reconciling Congregation of questioners and curious spiritual trekkers. Together we work and play, shaping an open space to grow in spirit while learning from each other.
“Think of the year as a house: door flung wide in welcome,
threshold swept and waiting,
a graced spaciousness opening and offering itself to you.
Here let the weary come let the aching come
let the lost come let the sorrowing come.
Here let them find their rest and let them find their soothing
and let them find their place and let them find their delight.
And may it be in this house of a year
that the seasons will spin in beauty,
and may it be in these turning days that time will spiral with joy.
And may it be that its rooms will fill with ordinary grace
and light spill from every window to welcome the stranger home.”
— Excerpt from “The Year as a House: A Blessing” in The Painted Prayerbook by Jan L. Richardson
