PFUMC wants to let you know how we are responding to the threat of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are diligently monitoring the news, the advice of our government officials, and our UMC leaders.
As such, we have decided to begin live-streaming worship. This began last week with our test services and will continue this week and all weeks going forward. You can tune in to our services on either Facebook or Youtube and be a part of either service, 9:00 am or 10:30 am.
Following Palmyra Area School District and indeed, the rest of the state, Noah’s Little Ark will be closed for two weeks.
This is still a very fluid and moving situation and the advice changes daily. Please stay tuned to your email, our Facebook page, and the news for the latest updates.
Above all, we wish for all to be safe and healthy, particularly those that are the most vulnerable among us. Part of loving our neighbors is working for their health and wholeness. We do that through preemptive love and at this time, appropriate social distancing.
Please let us know how we can be of help.
The Members and Staff of PFUMC.
