Sunday Services 



10:00 AM





With the Lenten season fast approaching, Pastor Smith has finalized plans for our church’s Lenten observances. Pastor has chosen the Book of Psalms, as the focus for Bible studies and preaching during Lent.

Beginning on Wednesday, February 8, and continuing each Wednesday, Pastor Smith will lead the mid-week evening Bible study at 7:00 pm.  This three-week study will be an introduction to the Psalms, and will explore several issues, including authorship, literary styles, themes, etc of the rich body of one hundred and fifty psalms.

Every Wednesday in Lent, Pastor Smith will lead a midday ‘Lunch and Learn,’ (Bible study with a lunch of soup and bread) from Noon to 1:00 pm. This six-week study will focus on the ‘penitential’ psalms.

In all the Sunday worship services in Lent, Pastor Smith’s sermons will be based on texts from the Book of Psalms.

Our PLUMC family is invited to participate in the Mission Connexion’s  Lenten services to be held in six of the seven member churches. The schedule of the 7:00 pm Wednesday evening services which will focus on the “I Am” sayings of Jesus in John’s gospel, is as follows:


Date                     Venue                                            Theme                                          Guest Preacher__

Mar 1              Canadensis   UMC          “I Am the Bread of Life…”               Pastor Kofi Ashley

Mar 8              Tobyhanna   UMC           “I Am the Light of the World…”      Pastor John Smith

Mar 15            Mountainhome UMC       “I Am the  Good Shepherd…”          Pastor Jessica  Ross

Mar 22            Pocono Lake UMC         “I Am the Resurrection…”                Pastor John Keretman

Apr  5              Mt. Pocono UMC           “I Am the Vine…”                              Pastor Mert Shane


Through these times of teaching and worship, it is hoped that our members will be led to a greater appreciation of the treasures which the psalms are, and will utilize them in their Lenten journey which leads to the celebration of Easter.
