Beginning on August 7 we will resume our usual schedule of Sunday worship at 10:30am, meeting upstairs in the sanctuary. Enjoy the extra hour of sleep and hope for cool weather!
Beginning on Sunday, July 3, PMC Sunday morning services will start at 9:30am in the downstairs fellowship hall. We are meeting one hour earlier than our usual service time on a temporary trial basis. Meeting in the fellowship hall will help keep us cool in the heat of July. The changes will last during the month of July only (July 3 – July 31). We will resume our 10:30am service time in the sanctuary on August 7. If you have questions or feedback, feel free to talk with Kayla (firstname.lastname@example.org).
