Travelers’ Christmas Eve Service @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Dec 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Travelers' Christmas Eve Service @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church

Christmas Eve is a very special day at Platte Woods UMC, but we understand that not everyone can be here on December 24. To accommodate those who are traveling or have other obligations on the 24th, we offer our first Christmas Eve service on Wednesday, December 19.

All of our Christmas Eve services feature the carols you love to sing, a meaningful message and a special candlelight version of “Silent Night.” Children are always welcome at our worship services, but for those who prefer, childcare is available for those 3 & under.

We hope you’ll join us as part of your Christmas celebration.

Breakfast With the Angels @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Dec 24 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Breakfast With the Angels @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

Families are invited to participate in this new worship experience. We’ll have a light breakfast, followed by singing a few Christmas worship songs. Following a short video and the sharing of the story of Jesus’ birth, brought to life by Cindy Breon, kids will have an opportunity to make a meaningful craft that will help them retell the story of Jesus’ birth.  To conclude, we’ll join together with our battery-operated candles and and sing the traditional Christmas favorite, “Silent Night.”

If you’re looking for a way to worship on Christmas Eve with your young (elementary age and younger) children, we hope you’ll join us for this special event. It’s designed to be meaningful in a way that will impact you AND your kids!

Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Jan 4 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Couples' Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

During the school year, PWUMC offers Couples’ Nights Out once a month (usually on the first Friday) to give couples an opportunity for an evening to themselves.

Each CNO starts with a short program (usually 30 minutes or less) followed by a date night where they discuss what they’ve learned.

We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2018/2019 season. Our study is based on the book “Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage” by Dr. Kevin Leman. Dr. Leman offers frank information from a Christian perspective along with practical suggestions to improve intimacy. For more information and to order a copy for yourselves look up “Sheet Music” by Dr. Kevin Leman.

Cost is $10 per couple each month when registered 10 days before the event. (Reservations after that will be charged a $20 late fee). This covers the adult program AND childcare. Childcare check-in is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.

The Table Youth Event @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Jan 26 @ 9:00 am – 8:00 pm

Join us at The Table for a day of worship, learning, service and fun. The Table is meant to be a unique experience to bring students together from various churches across the state of Missouri. The day will be a game changer in your spiritual development where you learn the powerful truth that you have a seat at God’s table. Our prayer is that you will leave energized to make a difference in your local community!

At the conference you will experience worship led by Zach and Michelle Hord and Eddie Lazano. Hear powerful messages from Timothy Palmer. Enjoy time to learn by asking questions like “Who is missing at the table?” Serve alongside others to support those in need in the community. Relax and enjoy some games on giant inflatables and much more!

“Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.” – Luke 14:15

Music

Fountain City Music will provide our worship music throughout the day. This talented group is a community of worship leaders, songwriters, musicians and artists who call Vineyard Church in Kansas City, Missouri, home.

Our Speaker

The son of missionaries who spent his earliest years living in the West Bank and on the island of Cyprus, Timothy Palmer is a singer/songwriter, poet, and speaker who currently lives in Abilene, TX with his wife, Erin, and their three children, Aubrey, Elijah and Quinn.

A passionate communicator, Timothy has spent much of the last  decade traveling, learning from, and sharing with others on this journey of faith. Whether he’s performing music at Harvard Divinity School, preaching in the Sacramento mountains of New Mexico, or sitting around the living room with high school students during a weekend retreat, the message is always the same: when we begin to live our lives fromLove rather than workingforLove, compassion begins to displace judgement, we realize our kinship with all humanity, and, together, we begin to heal.
