PUMC is a busy church! Our calendar is full of activities and programs for people of all ages and interests. At our core, however, is our understanding that we companion people on their journey, offer opportunities for people to learn and grow in grace, worship God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, and join together in changing the world for the better.
We understand the congregation to be part of the body of Christ, the people of God. We come together for worship, learning, and service, but we also support each other down all of life’s roads. This includes caring ministries such as pastoral care, baby bibs for new parents, prayer shawls and bears to comfort those in distress, and loving support through providing meals and transportation to those in need. We care for the community through our Samaritan Fund and the active participation in the Plainfield Ministerial Association, the Plainfield Interfiath Food Pantry, and the Ridgewood United Community Food Pantry, as well as numerous other missional projects.
We seek to create a beloved community in the midst of life’s busy-ness. While carrying out our mission and practicing ministry, we hope to nurture and support each other, love our neighbors, and walk humbly with God.
