Greetings, Merry Christmas and thank you for visiting the Paint Creek United Methodist website. The Christ season is upon us and most children and adults alike are anticipating what gifts they hope to get for Christmas. Typically, most of us, would have just been preoccupied with purchasing gifts to give to our friends and family, but COVID has put a new twist on the holiday hustle and bustle time of year and the pandemic has forced us to reconsider what and what not to do as far as family and social gatherings for the holidays.
In spite of it all, Christmas is still a very special time of year, and it is exciting to see how our church family has prepared and decorated the Paint Creek church for Christmas. We are always thankful to God for his answer to prayers in this past year, and despite COVID, Paint Creek UMC still continues to support area charities through our donations of canned goods to the community food pantry, holiday gifts for those in need in cooperation with Neighborhood House, as well as purchasing gift cards for LOVE INC. As you can see, we strive to maintain our generosity by giving to others through our Christian actions.
As of this time, Paint Creek has returned to broadcasting our services virtually every Sunday on our Facebook website, starting at 11:00 am. As we move into the new year, we hope you continue to follow us on Facebook and when we are allowed to come together again, we pray you will consider joining us in person at the Paint Creek United Methodist Church.
Let us never forget that this holiday is a time for all of us to share with others the true meaning of Christmas. We also hope you will join us on Facebook Live every Sunday morning for the Advent and Christmas season to worship "the new born King." Whether you regularly attend online or whether you have been away awhile, please feel free to join us again.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Marv Herman and your Paint Creek Church family.
