8:15 & 11am
Children are welcome in worship, and our traditional services even set aside time for a minister to gather the kids together and share a story with them. So please know that you are free to keep your kids with you in worship, as they sing – and sometimes dance! – in praise to God. But, if your little ones would rather stretch their legs and interact with playmates, we provide childcare throughout the morning. Our nursery attendants will be happy to watch over your kiddos so you can experience some much-needed stillness and sacredness in the sanctuary.
What To Expect
When you arrive at PUMC, expect to be greeted with warmth and smiles. We love to meet new people and make them feel at home. Our traditional services include organ music, unison prayers, classic hymns, and a brief time of shaking the pastors’ hand afterward. Our contemporary service begins with several current worship songs, accompanied by guitar, drums, and keys, and typically has more casual attire. You’re welcome to bring a cup of coffee with you to Connections! Both services provide a chance to greet the person sitting beside you, and both services include communion the first Sunday of the month.
Whichever you choose, we hope that through worship, you will experience the steadfast love of God, the redeeming presence of Christ, and the holy breath of the Spirit.
Meet the Pastors
Pastor David and Katie have teamed up to listen for God’s leading at PUMC, and what they hear has been full of promise. Our church family just keeps growing, both by reaching out and by drilling down, deepening in the faith even as we extend our arms ever wider. During David’s tenure, the church added a contemporary service and expanded our outreach into community-wide worship. With Katie’s ministry, we are taking church outside the walls of the sanctuary and into the beautiful mess of our daily lives, forming small groups for relational discipleship. Together our pastors strive to preach fresh messages for those who are thirsting, and offer care for those who are hurting. They are convinced PUMC is the best appointment they could have!
At home, David and his wife Carolyn have two kiddos, Addy and Joseph, along with a pleasantly plump dog named Sophie. They enjoy fitness groups, date nights, and local parks. Katie grew up in Virginia and moved to NC to attend Duke Divinity School. She enjoys going to the beach and hosting dinner parties!
