What to Expect

What should you expect when you come to PUMC?

  • What should I wear?

    Dress is ‘come as you like’ in all worship experiences. Whether you’d instead dress in a three-piece suit or jeans and a t-shirt, there is no dress code for our worship - we want to see you here!

  • When is worship, and how long is it?

    Classic Worship is in the Sanctuary at 8:45 & 10:00 a.m.
    NewDay Praise Worship is in the Worship Annex at 10:00 a.m.

    Worship lasts approximately 45 - 60 minutes every Sunday. We start with music, then go into an engaging message from Senior Pastor Charlie or Pastor Hannah. During the service, feel free to participate however you’d like. If you want to sit down and listen, feel free to do so. If you want to stand or raise your hands to sing, you can do that, too.

  • What is worship like?

    Classic Worship in the Sanctuary features a relevant message and exceptional music, including that of a world-class pipe organ and traditional hymns.

    NewDay Praise Worship in the Worship Annex features creative messages, a live band, and casual seating.

  • What do you have for children?

    At PUMC, kids in grades K-5 have their own fun, engaging, and interactive service. Our KIDS@PUMC team are all trained and has gone through background checks. Safety is our number one priority! Children start in NewDay Praise with their parents, then head off to their worship experience. Infant & toddler care is available in the Infant/Toddler Room.

  • What do you have for youth?

    In grades 6-12, youth attend an emotional, high-energy worship experience upstairs in the South hall. Youth worship is led by Pastor Bob and “More than Conquerors,” the youth-led praise band. Worship focuses on lessons from the bible that are relevant to teens, and they can use them daily.

  • Will you ask me for money?

    No. At PUMC, we want to live generous lives and invite people who support our mission to give as they feel led. We have no expectations for guests to give.

  • Can I attend if I’m __________ ?

    Yes. Fill in the blank with whatever you’re worried about: single, divorced, gay, straight, white, black, addicted, hurting, poor, super-successful, a nonbeliever, atheist, New England Patriots fan, etc. At PUMC, we’ll welcome you as you are, so come visit us this Sunday!
