Many of you many not know that Polk Street UMC has an outreach ministry designed to welcome our first time visitors each week. Our front porch ministry uses a rotation of volunteers to take a gift each Monday to our first time visitors from Sunday’s worship services.
Volunteerssimply come by the church office, pick up the gifts, the names and addresses of the first time visitors on Monday afternoon and deliver them to the homes. This front porch visit is just what it says, a thank you to the person for visiting PSUMC and the delivery of a gift bag. These visits take just a few minutes, but make a big statement to the recipients that we are glad they were our guests in worship.
If you feel led to participate in this ministry we need you. Please contact Kevin Deckard 374-2891 firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up or for further information.
Wednesday, April 3 our Mid-Week will begin a new adult study on “The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows” by James Bryan Smith. The nine week study will encourage you to consider your understanding of God and how that understanding affects who you are and how you live. Books are available for $20.00 through the church office or online through various retailers in both print and eBook formats. Sign-up for the class by contacting the office at 374-2891 or register online.

October 30, 2012--As Hurricane Sandy bore down on millions of people, the United Methodist Church was already helping them prepare, respond, and cope with their fear.
From New England to the eastern seaboard, into the Midwest, storm evacuees were moving into shelters or hunkering down in their homes.
United Methodist Early Response Teams (ERT) from many states were put on alert, and will deploy only after emergency officials give the okay. "At this point we're waiting out the storm," said Carol Brozosky, an ERT leader from New Jersey, which has more than 150 ERT responders statewide.
Already, Brozosky has helped contact trained UM volunteers who are now serving in American Red Cross shelters helping thousands of evacuees.
Thank you for faithfully supporting the work of Christ through PSUMC. Through your faithfulness, lives are touched, minds are challenged, hearts are inspired and the love of God is shared with many.
As we faithfully follow through on our commitments for 2012, it is time to look to the future and complete our pledge cards for 2013. In 2012 we accomplished an amazing step in the renovations and newly created facilities. In 2013 God is calling us to put these facilities to use by serving the community and shifting our focus to "building faithful disciples for Jesus Christ."
Opportunities for volunteers are listed below and as new opportunities arise, they are posted online, in the weekly worship bulletin and in the bi-weekly newsletter.
Another Chance House
Each month, a team from PSUMC provides one home cooked meal for approximately fifty men who have been recently released from a correctional facility. They are making a temporary home in Another Chance House as they prepare to return to life in society. A team prepares and serves the meal.
Volunteers spend one day a week with clients at Jan Werner Adult Day Care. They serve as friends, visiting, listening to, and helping those who are elderly or infirm.
Polk Street UMC members served at The Ronald McDonald House doing Fall cleaning; at Eveline Rivers preparing for the big Christmas push; at Martin Road Lake picking up trash; at High Plains Food Bank packing boxes; at our church sorting food for Snak Pak 4 Kids; and building a ramp at an Amarillo home for the Ramp Build Project.
