PUMC was delighted to host guest pastor, the Rev. Dr. Margaret Gramley for World Communion Sunday on October 7, 2012. Rev. Gramley is recently retired from the Kingswood UMC after serving her career in the Northern Illinois Conference. Rev. Gramley’s sermon is now available on Vimeo.
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 Interfaith 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.
