Church History Buffs!

PUMC is hosting the annual meeting of the Indiana United Methodist Historical Society from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 6th. The theme of this year’s meeting will be “The Battle Over the Bottle” in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Prohibition. A very interesting program has been planned with the keynote speaker to be the Rev. Dr. Jennifer Woodruff-Tate.
She is the Managing editor of Christian History Magazine and the author of the award winning book, The Poisoned Chalice: Eucharistic Grape Juice and Common Sense Realism in Victorian Methodism.
After the Potato Bar lunch served by the Plainfield United Methodist Women, the afternoon program will feature Mr. Richard Gotshall portraying Mr. Blizzard, a local banker and prominent member of Grace United Methodist Church in Franklin during the early 1900’s. He will be dealing with the Temperance movement in Franklin then and during prohibition in the 1920’s.
Afterwards, he will conduct a workshop on how to develop a first-person program on local church history.
Come to the Encore Senior Ministry Desk in the Main Lobby to learn more about the meeting and to register to attend.
Registration will be held today, March 24, and on March 31.
