Community Care Ministry Team Meeting
May 6 @ 7:10 pm – 8:10 pm
The mission of the Community Care Ministry (CCM) Team of Platte Woods United Methodist Church is to connect people to God through CARE. We are looking for people who want to use their gift of care and love for our community. New participants can join the CCM team and start working for a care ministry area. Whether you feel called to serve by providing care, have received care in the past and feel ready to “pass it on,” or simply have a gift for listening and compassion and a love for our community, this team is for you!

 

For more information, please contact Vicki Krehbiel, director of Counseling. Zoom meeting info will be given upon registration (below).

the old things have gone away and new things have arrived! 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

We are excited to welcome you back to inperson worship Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Registration is capped at 150 people per service, and each service’s registration period opens the Sunday prior. See below to register!

 

The PWUMC staff has kept busy learning how to continue to offer digital ministry in the best way possible, and we can’t wait to see you in person to gather as a community in Christ. While COVID19 continues to impact our daily lives, inperson gatherings at the church will look and feel a little different. We ask all who enter the building to help keep everyone safe. When coming into the church, please adhere to Reopening Guidelines as we all commit to following the protocols and guidance set forth by health department professionals. Sunday morning childrens children’s programming will remain online at this time. If you dont feel well, please stay home. Even if youre unsure as to why you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please stay home and participate in our online worship services (Modern at 9 a.m., Traditional at 11 a.m.) in order to best protect yourself and others.

 

Beginning May 16, we will have limited spaces available in our Nursery for ages 2 and under during worship. These spaces must be reserved in advance. For more information about the Nursery, please contact Jen Bruce, director of Kid Connection.

“How the Bible Actually Works” Study
May 12 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

We have an exciting new six-week Bible study on Wednesday nights! “How the Bible Really Works” will show how the Bible leads you to wisdom rather than answers, and why that’s actually great news! Join Pastor Choongho as he dives into how to read and understand the Bible based on contemporary biblical scholarship. This Zoom study is appropriate for anyone regardless of their level of previous study, so we hope you’ll take part! No workbook is required, but if you’d like additional reading, the following books are recommended: Peter Enn’s How the Bible Actually Works (2019), Kristin Swenson’s Bible Babel (2010), and Harvey Cox’s How to Read the Bible (2015). Zoom information provided at registration.

 

The topics of each session include:

  • “What Is the Bible?” (May 12)
  • “Whose Bible Is It?” (May 19)
  • “Quotes and Misquotes” (May 26)
  • “Wisdom or Answers” (June 2)
  • “The Challenge of Wisdom” (June 9)
  • “The Great News” (June 16)

A Time to Mourn Worship & Workshop
May 15 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Many of us have experienced loss this past year without the opportunity to grieve through our usual traditions of funerals and time spent with relatives and friends. The Care Ministry Team at Platte Woods UMC would like to extend an invitation to anyone who is experiencing grief to our A Time to Mourn event. The purpose of this morning is to :

 

Remember the Life of your loved one.
Honor your personal grief.
Be surrounded by our Caring Community.

 

The worship service will have a time of reflection and music, and will provide an opportunity for a “formal” memorial service, especially for those who were not able to have a funeral for their loved ones during 2020.

 

In the workshop, we will learn more about grief through The Birdhouse Project, where we will process by actually building a birdhouse to take home. (Please bring a hammer and screwdriver to the workshop.)

 

You can register for worship, the workshop or both. Register by May 14.
