PUMC

Welcome to the web presence of the Prospect United Methodist Church. The “real” presence of Prospect Church is in the world – being individual instruments of God’s love wherever our members go. Called to service, we are centered in worship. We worship on Sunday mornings at 8:30 in the chapel and 10:00 in the sanctuary. Prospect is known as a family and child-friendly church. Children attend the opening portion of the 10:00 a.m. service with their families, come forward for the children’s message, then go to their Sunday School classes. Nursery care is provided for infants and toddlers. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month at the 10:00 a.m. service and each Sunday at the 8:30 service. We invite you to check out the “real” presence of Prospect church. A warm welcome awaits. (more)

Health Kits

Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act”

Health Kits are collected annually by our New York Annual Conference as a tangible mission outreach program. May is the time to bring your kit to church. Last year our conference collected 3500 kits which were taken to Mission Central, in Mechanicsburg PA. Mission Central is a mission warehouse that is an outreach resource for disaster response, mission outreach and mission education and part of the UMCOR relief network. They are in constant need of supplies so our donations are a way to keep them stocked. (Click here for Health Kit  Instructions.)

We will accept Health Kits until June 1. Look for the collection bin in Sessions Hall. They will then be taken to Annual Conference in June, and taken from there to Mission Central. Mission Central volunteers will process the kits for distribution around the world.


Water is Life Giving

Clean Water for Nicaraguans. 2Cor:9-6 “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously”. Thanks to your bountiful goodness  we are able to give 13 water filters to the Connecticut District Mission project. 13 Nicaraguan families will have clean water soon because you have answered the call.  Prayers have been answered. Thank you for your generosity.


NYAC Sandy Recovery Ministry

In the recovery phase of the disaster the NYAC Sandy Recovery Ministry has assisted over 500 families through a Red Cross Grant, and over 175 families through an UMCOR grant. The ARC grant provided for many basic necessities while the UMCOR grant supports more extensive volunteer and rebuild efforts. Despite this work, and the collaborative efforts of other organizations, thousands remain in need and the recovery is anticipated to continue for another 10 years.
