PUMC PRAISE BAND – The PUMC Praise Band has made a CD of 14 of our favorite songs to commemorate the Contemporary Service held at PUMC from autumn of 2016 through the summer of 2017.  The CD features 8 Praise Band members.  The CD is entitled “We Believe!” and there is a limited edition available for a donation of $15.00 with all proceeds going to the Portsmouth United Methodist Church.  Please call the office at 683-4005 to obtain a CD.




The Downeast Mission Wreath Project.  These are fresh, high-quality, hand-made, fragrant Balsam Fir wreaths from Maine.  This project supports our PUMC Youth Group and the Down East Maine Missions in economically challenged Washington County, Me. (see flier on bulletin).   24” wreath (door size) decorated with a traditional red bow for $24.  A true ‘taste’ of Maine for the holidays! Wreaths delivered to PUMC the Sat. after Thanksgiving.  If you have ordered a wreath you can pick it up from Beth Velzis after Worship or during office hours.

Contact Beth Velzis or the church office with any questions.
