"Serving God by Serving Others"
The word “church” might be a noun, but at PUMC we also consider it a verb! We don’t just go to church here. We extend our hands out to our community, our region, and even internationally from our mission camps offered here at the church, mission trips, Operation Christmas Child, feeding the homeless and equipping apartments for single moms at the Mercy House in Springfield, and so much more!
The United Methodist Church is a global denomination that opens hearts, opens minds and opens doors through active engagement with our world. The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
