The Chancel Choir of Plainfield United Methodist Church is excited to share its Lenten Cantata with you. We Remember Calvary by Joel Raney is a blend of traditional hymns, worship songs, congregational singing, narration, and scripture. It all combines to paint a vivid and moving picture of Christ’s last days and His journey to the cross. We will be presenting this musical portrait on Sunday, April 7, at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. We hope you will join us on this path through the Passion story!
Join us this April for Holy Week. We will be having services on:
Palm Sunday – April 14 at 8:30am and 11am.
Maundy Thursday – April 18 at 7pm
Good Friday – April 19 at 7pm
Easter Saturday – April 20 at 10:00am we will have an Easter Saturday Celebration. Come join us as we create, play, and hunt for eggs! We’ll remember the hope and joy of Easter, all while sharing in the fun with other families. The morning will culminate with the hunt for the hidden prize eggs. We’ll also reveal our 2019 VBS theme.
Easter Sunday – April 21 at 8:30am and 11am
Hope to see everyone there and we encourage newcomers as well! (:
Coming in March!
Each winter, from November through April, Faith in Place partners with faith communities throughout Chicagoland to host a series of indoor farmers markets on Saturdays and Sundays. The farmers markets provide an additional source of income for local vendors during the off-season, promote sustainable farming methods and economic justice for regional farm families, encourage healthy, wholesome eating, and support the building of relationships between producers and consumers.
This year PUMC is excited to be selected as an onsite host for one of these markets.
Saturday March 16th from 10am-2pm
Faith in Place’s Farmers Markets include more than 20 vendors, each specializing in their own distinct trade. Faith in Place works to make each event well rounded with plenty of seasonal produce, eggs, meat, fish, honey, baked goods, prepared food, health and beauty products, salsas, preserves, and more.
What can you do to help make this a successful outreach? Sign up to volunteer and assist the vendors, and be on hand as hospitality “shepherds” to support the market! You can contact the church office or call Carol May, 815-351-9004. You can also view a full schedule of all the 2018-19 WFM season.
You are invited to jump into a good book!
Join us as we pick up a selection from a local author! For March we will be reading The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. We will discuss it on Thursday March 21 at 7pm in the conference room. Come join us! Contact Pastor Sherry with questions.
First Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm
Come have fun with us! Each student reads a book each month and then we meet to discuss it.
These books are easily found in the library. We connect Bible passages and stories to the theme! We have games, art projects, and amazing snacks! Sometimes we watch movies to connect to the books we read.
Books are age-appropriate, with Grades 2-5 reading one book and Middle School kids reading a different one.
Every one of us faces challenges that threaten our well-being.
Real life sometimes brings
fear, anger, and shame.
But can we find hope together?
Join us for our sermon series Hope When it Hurts, beginning January 13th.
January 13th – Fear
January 20th – Anxiety and Depression
January 27th – Failure
February 3rd – Anger
February 10th – Shame
