The Elf is loose... Ok, it's just me in an elf costume, but we wanted to show that our church is connecting people to Jesus Christ, while making the community, better, safer and stronger.
If you are on Facebook, check out our Pleasant Valley UMC page and our Journey page to see updated information of how we have partnered with the community. Please "like" and "share" these pictures so we can get the word out about how our church is doing BIG things!
Special thanks to Kerry and Susan Andersen for coming up with the Elf on the Shelf idea. We will also participate in the City of Sachse parade where the Elf will appear on our float. If you would like to help decorate or be a part of the parade, please contact Kerry and Susan.
We have so many things to be grateful for as we move into this Advent season. I look forward to seeing you at either service and at all of our Advent/Christmas activities throughout the month of December.
P.S. If you have missed any of the Elf pictures, you can find them here.
Our stewardship campaign is coming to a close and as your pastor, I want to personally thank you. Thank you for your commitment to Christ and His church. I know I've said this many times over the past four weeks, but God has done so much at Pleasant Valley through you, and I know there is much more to come!
This Sunday, we will be bringing forward our service and giving cards. These cards serve as a reminder to us that we have a gift to share. Through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness we help connect people to Jesus Christ, while making the community better, safer and stronger.
If you haven't picked up your giving and service cards, we will have extra copies available at both campuses this Sunday.
Thank you again for being a part of Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church… I am humbled and honored to be your pastor.
Let’s face it: we live in a busy world that often makes people feel small, unimportant and forgotten.
But the good news is, we have a great church... a terrific place where people can feel larger than life, valued, and remembered! I know Tracy and I feel that way, and I hope you do too!
This Sunday, we’re inviting those members who haven’t attended church in a while to come back... and it would be a great time to invite others too!
We will have coffee and refreshments following both services, so please invite your families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else who may need a good ol’ dose of Pleasant Valley hospitality to join us!
We have a great church family whose love and support has been such a blessing to Tracy and me over the past year. Who do you know that could benefit from such a loving congregation?
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday... and meeting those you invite to join us!
In January 2014, a group of PV members gathered for our first-ever planning retreat, and coming out of that time, we set some pretty BIG, lofty and audacious goals for our church. At that time, I honestly wondered if we had set the bar too high, but I’ve got great news to share: We’ve made great progress on all of them!
Here is a summary of the 4 goals that were set during the planning retreat, as well as an update on where things currently stand:
As you can see, we’ve made great strides on all of our BIG goals… and some of them we can actually check off our list as completed. Very exciting!
But we still have a ways to go on a few. Here are a few suggestions on ways you can help us get closer to the rest of our goals:
It’s obvious that God has BIG things in store for us as we journey toward the end of the year. We’ll have several opportunities for guests, family and friends to come and see what we’re all about. Please don’t be shy about your great love for our church. It’s your endorsement that will likely encourage them to come.
Thanks for your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness for our church!
We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!
FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks.
Classes will run on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. from January 20, 2015 (Preview date is January 6, 2015) through March 17, 2015. Childcare will be available. Cost for the class is $93.00.
You’re invited to celebrate the birth of Christ with us before you go at the traveler’s service, which is held early for those who are traveling or may not get a chance to attend church over the Christmas season.
The service includes traditional carols, candlelight, and Christmas refreshments.
All are invited to join us on Wednesday, December 24, 2014, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus our Savior.
We feature a Blue Christmas Service, a special service for those who have experienced loss, at 4:00 pm.
