For many years, we have been supporting our international brothers and sisters through Heifer International. This group provides and teaches life-changing skills to those who need help in far away lands.
We are passionate about being helping hands for the Eastern Plumas food pantry, found in downtown Portola. For some, this is all they have. Please join us, and give graciously in love, for those in our community.
The last Wednesday of every month is a Community Dinner at the local Catholic church. It is supported by our local businesses, individuals, service and faith based organizations. Come and have a great meal and meet new friends!
We will be serving in May!
Every day, a warm and loving meal is provided for any Senior in our area! They can come by bus and eat with their friends or, if feeling under the weather, their meal is brought to their home. This is a bright spot in their day, and we help support them
with our gifts.
Children worship with the adults on Sundays, and can then either leave after scripture reading for a loving Sunday School lesson or stay in worship.
Youth group meets at different times during the year, depending on the season. If God is calling you to assist with the most important ministry of our church, our kids, please call the church office! Working with kids matters!
PUMC is a certified Stephen Ministry church. We have trained Stephen Minsters that are ready to walk with you and be a consistent, supporting presence for you. Stephen Ministers are assigned by the pastor as trained listeners while being held to a covenant of confidentiality. This is a Christian based program that is tried and true, and a tremendous source of comfort when it is needed most. Please call the pastor for more information
We support the kids of our community by showing up at school sporting events and bring both teams cookies.
We are passionate about our pets and throughout the year, celebrate them with the blessing of the pets. See the Pastor if we missed blessing yours~
Every year, we celebrate Halloween with Trunk or Treat, a safe alternative to trick or treating. It is so fun being silly with the kids and showing them that everyone needs loving!
Come and join us as we break bread together and enjoy each other's company, laugh, share stories, and hang out.
Our church is over 120 years old, and an anchor to our community. It was the only place during the Spanish Flu that was set up as a place of refuge for those who were sick, it was an original Red Cross shelter, and the place where school met before the actual school was bult on the hill. The stories of the church are endless, as is the love of those who continue to take care of it today.
Our pastor serves as a local chaplain and a Red Cross Disaster and Spiritual Care team member along with members of our church. This ministry finds us serving in many different ways in our community. We are also a recognized "clean Air" facility for the public to come to when air quality suffers from nearby fires.
