Annual Thanksgiving Eve Dinner Wednesday November 22nd 5:30 PM – Agape Hall (church sanctuary)
Once again we are making preparations for the Annual Thanksgiving Eve Dinner. We welcome you at 5:30PM with the meal being served at 6:00 PM. We will serve the meal out of Mary’s Parlor buffet style; eating in Agape Hall. Please sign up in the office for what you plan to bring. We will need to know your name, phone, dish(’s) you are bringing, number in your group, if you can help setup or cleanup. Plates, cutlery and napkins will be provided along with hot & cold beverages. There is no charge for this meal as it is a service and blessing to our congregation to share this meal as a church family dinner.
Announcing A Fun New Educational Experience You Can Access From Home!

Webisodes will be linked to the Prescott United Methodist Facebook site
CARPOOL CARAVAN TO SEDONA AND OAK CREEK
Our last Carpool Caravan trip for 2017 will be on Friday November 17 to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Besides incredible red rock scenery, this will be an opportunity to do some Christmas shopping in a different setting,. We will visit Tlaquepaque, then drive into the canyon for lunch and return to “Old Town” Sedona for the afternoon.
A Carpool Caravan is a day trip, in which each driver makes space available for passengers who don’t want to drive. Each person is responsible for his or her own expenses during the day, and agrees to help with the cost of the gas. A Carpool Caravan is a good way to meet new people and travel confidently to locations with which you are not familiar. The available places on each trip will be on a first come, first served basis.
This trip will involve walking on uneven surfaces. Sturdy walking shoes and sunscreen are essential for every participant. Each traveler is responsible for the cost of lunch. We will leave the church at 8:30 a.m. and plan to return at about 6 p.m. Sign-ups will be available this week and next week before and after services. For more information contact Paul and Susan Wolfe at 928-443-7514.
A Service of Solace & Hope
on Sunday, December 3, 2016, at 3 PM, in Agape/200. Will hold “A Service of Solace & Hope”
Sometimes called “Blue Christmas,” this service is a quiet time of worship, meditation, and candle lighting. The service provides an opportunity for remembering and healing for those challenged by loss of any kind. If you have experienced life challenges in recent or past years, and the approach of the holiday season feels more like a time of
sadness than one of joy and celebration, come and gather with us for a Spirit-led time of music, Scripture, and hope. This year marks the seventh annual “Service of Solace and Hope” hosted by Prescott United Methodist. The service is open to the entire community – all are welcome. Stephen Ministers will be present and available to support any who desire prayer and comfort. Worshipers will be encouraged to remain in the sanctuary as long as they wish at the conclusion of the service.
New Contemporary Worship Service every Sunday 11:00 AM in Esther Hall. Come explore what God is doing. Praise, connect, and create t ogether with us.
