Attire varies at PUMC. While on any given Sunday you will find the majority of the congregation dressed in casual clothing, many others can always be found in dresses and ties. Our goal is to have a worship environment where people can feel comfortable regardless of their attire.
Our nursery is open for children (birth – age 3) by 8:50 am, and is managed by PUMC staff and a volunteer. Please inform our nursery staff of any concerns or allergies. All staff and volunteers undergo a national criminal background check before being approved to work or help with our children and youth.

Mid-way through the Sunday worship service, children are invited to participate in their own worship experience. Children through the second grade are invited to leave the Sanctuary and attend Children’s Church, where our teachers will lead the children in a worship experienced based on the same theme the Pastor is using for the morning sermon. This allows parents and children to engage in meaningful conversation regarding the morning lessons.
