What to Expect

What to Expect


PPUMC strives to be an open spiritual community dedicated to allowing each person to follow their own unique path. Together, through worship and Christian education, we explore the many pathways to wholeness in body, spirit, and mind.

We worship at 10am every Sunday, in-person and online via Zoom. Services are typically an hour.

Music is heavily involved in the service, including all-congregational hymns and anthems offered by the choir. Our pipe organ also gets regular use in addition to piano and other occasional instruments.

There are multiple ways to pray during the service, including out loud to the community, silently, writing your prayer down, or by communicating directly with the pastor.

After worship, we encourage everyone, whether they are in the sanctuary or online, to talk with each other. For those in-person, coffee/tea and sometimes other treats are available in Community Hall.
