Today we are celebrating PB UMC’s 75th anniversary! This congregation has changed and evolved over the years but it has maintained a steady focus on being a community of radical inclusiveness and extending hospitality to those in need. We are honored to welcome our District Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Sandy Olewine, as our preacher today. In addition, we are thrilled that Rev. Dr. April Herron, pastor of PB UMC for 23 years, are with us along with her family. We remember and celebrate where and from whom we have come. We give thanks for this present moment and the gift of this day. We look forward, with hope, to the ways God calls us to be an expression of divine love and grace as we move into the future!
Scripture passages: Psalm 104:24-34, 35b
