Birthday Party

On Pentecost (June 9 this year) we celebrate the ‘birthday of the church’ when the first believers received the gift of the Holy Spirit and the church was born! You are invited to a church-wide celebration of this special day on the church calendar. Join PUMC for cake, singing, and gifts on Sunday, June 9, 9:35-9:55 a.m. in the east parking lot to celebrate the church, PUMC, and our life together as a community of faith. (Note 8:45/9:00 a.m. worship well conclude early to allow everyone to participate, and the party will conclude in time for everyone to make it to 10:00 worship and Sunday school.)

Gifts of “Birthday Bags” will be received to be donated to the local food pantry. Please bring a birthday gift bag, cake mix, frosting tub, candles, and one additional item (such as paper plates or napkins), assembled or separately so neighbors who use the food pantry will have what they need to celebrate a birthday in their own home.
On Sunday, June 9, make your way to the east parking lot at 9:35 a.m. and find the table of your birthday month. Hosts will welcome you, help you meet others that share your birthday month, and together we will celebrate the birthday of the church!

And you can help make this an extra fun event by hosting a birthday month table! You will work with one or two other hosts to decorate a table for a particular month of the year; provide a cake to serve 10-12 people; facilitate introductions and conversation at your table using a simple outline that will be provided. Sign up in the Main Lobby today or contact Pastor Elizabeth Gilbert to host ([email protected] or 317.839.2319, ext. 244).
