Adult Activities

Sunday Morning Adult Study & Fellowship

Why should the kids have all the fun? Join Pastor Lisa, Pastor Tom, and Pastor Mike in the Fellowship Hall for coffee, food, and conversation. You'll hear all about our new Sunday morning opportunity to get to know our PCUMC family better and grow together in Christian discipleship as United Methodists. Enjoy the Worship Service before or after, but be sure to make meeting in the Fellowship Hall with your PCUMC family a Sunday morning priority. Along with Worship, PCUMC Adult Study and Fellowship time makes a complete Sunday experience with God for a terrific start of each week. Ages 18-108 and up are welcome to join in as we grow together in Christ. Sundays at 10:15am.

United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice. Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. Pendleton Center Church has an active UMW Group led by Naomi Laskey, President. The group meets monthly during the fall, winter and spring on the first Thursday of the month at 12:00pm.

United Methodist Men

Come join the United Methodist Men Breakfast Group on the third Saturday of every month (except July, August, December) from 9:00-10:30am for breakfast, fellowship, devotions, and prayer. All men over the age of 18 are welcome! This is an opportunity for men to meet and share with other Christian men in a small group setting with no other agenda. While this group is not service-oriented, we do run the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, support the Community Easter Egg Hunt, and promote other needs in the church. If you would like to receive an e-mail reminder before each breakfast, please send a message to Scott Dabb at Join us!

Watercolor Classes

Have you always wanted to try your hand at a new hobby? Here's your opportunity!

Pendleton Center Church has two Watercolor painting classes that meet year-round in the Art Room (Enter from the back of the church). One class meets on Tuesdays at 1:00pm, the other meets Saturdays at 10:00am. The classes are led by Virginia Kelley who holds a masters degree in education.

Classes are $7 and meet year-round. Each session is two hours in length and the goal is to do a painting at each session. Virginia teaches a lesson each time, both basic skills and advanced techniques! No prior sign-up is required. Try it out!

Certified Lay Ministry

A Certified Lay Minister (CLM) is a qualified United Methodist layperson called to congregational leadership as part of a ministry team under the supervision of a clergyperson, but who often serves the church in many other ways.

A person wishing to become a CLM enters the certification process, which includes training, support, supervision and accountability, while serving in a local church assigned by the District Superintendent. CLMs are laypeople serving out their call as a disciple of Jesus Christ. They are not intended to be reimbursed as either full- or part-time clergy, and are encouraged to have their main source of livelihood beyond their local church.

If you are interested in learning more, talk with one of our pastors to explore the process. Pendleton Center Church has many trained Certified Lay Ministers! And be sure to check out Chuck's rattling's on Certified Lay Ministry!
