PUMC is looking for a Youth Director!!   

Providence United Methodist Church is looking for a part-time Youth Director to serve the church youth (grades 6-12)of our church. Providence is a community church needing to increase our overall attendance on Sundays. Our youth attendance is low in that many have graduated in the last year and our last youth director moved to Florida! Presently our group is about 5 teens, but has great potential to grow if a youth director came on with us!

Another Fund Raising Opportunity


Although you may not want to think about it yet, Christmas shopping is just around the corner. If you plan to do some or much of your shopping on Amazon, you can also help the church at no additional cost to you. Amazon has a shopping option called Amazon Smile that makes charitable donations to many non-profit organizations. Providence UMC is one such organization. While the amount donated for each individual purchase may seem insignificant, multiple purchases by multiple shoppers can lead to meaningful assistance to the church – and as noted earlier, the process is totally painless to you, the shopper. To enroll, you must first have an Amazon account. Once your account is established, go to smile.amazon.com. When queried for the organization you wish to support, type “Providence United Methodist Church”. From the list that drops down, select the first choice (Monrovia, MD). That’s all you need to do. Amazon Smile is not just limited to Christmas shopping; it’s available all year. Why not give it a try?


How do I sign up for Amazon Smile?

1. Go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/52-1931585
