  • PUMC 101

    PUMC101 is an opportunity to connect with others as we learn a bit about the history of the UMC (and what are our core beliefs), how to get more involved in the mission & ministry of Palmdale UMC, and what is involved in joining the church (should that be of interest to you). This 2-hour session is geared for both newcomers and longtime worshippers.  Whether you're new to PUMC or have been part of our community for a while, we'd love to see you here! This will be an online ZOOM event... but there can be "in-person" options for those not able to connect online.
