Help Us Love and Care for Our Neighbors
Jesus taught us: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."

Worship at Samaritan Village
Did you know that PUMC is one of nine churches that provide a Sunday afternoon worship for Good Samaritan (Prescott Village)? PUMC typically is involved two-three times each six months. The service begins at 4 PM and ends around 4:45 PM. The attendees come from the nursing facility and the assisted living apartments. Volunteers from PUMC provide the leadership for this service which includes music, a sermonette or reflection, and prayer. The reflection usually is shared by a retired minister, but participation is open to anyone who would like to present a 10-15 minute reflection. Since the congregation enjoys music, an individual leads hymns and a pianist provides the instrumental accompaniment. A special music presentation is always a big hit and can be a solo, duet, trio, etc. or instrumental. A song leader with a guitar or stringed instrument is a favorite. The next service is scheduled for May 29. If you have vocal or instrumental music ability and wish to volunteer for this service, please call Larry Christensen, coordinator for Good Samaritan services, 928-771-1396. No one will be refused!!! If you lose this name and number, please call the office!"
Prescott United Methodist Church is truly blessed to have so many committed volunteers who provide one-on-one confidential, Christian caregiving to our congregation and community. If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed with the challenges of life and could benefit from a listening ear and some distinctively Christian comfort while working through those challenges, please speak with Patti Blackwood at the church (778-1950) and see if a Stephen Minister might be able to provide assistance.
