Our hearts and prayers go out to Cole's family and friends. Those who knew Cole as a part of the youth group and Peru Senior High Mission trip are invited to a special prayer vigil in our chapel tonight at 6 pm. #pvumcperu #seniorhighyouth ... See MoreSee Less

To everyone who is a part of our church family: It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that one of our own, Cole Brecheisen, passed away last night. Cole was a recent high school graduate from our group, and regularly attended many of our youth group activities and programs. He was dearly loved by our entire church family, and will be greatly missed. There aren't many details about the cause of death at this time, but I will do my best to keep everyone as informed as possible. After speaking with Tommy, we decided to go ahead and combine youth choir/bells rehearsal this afternoon. This will not be a typical rehearsal; rather, it will be an opportunity to sing or play or simply process what has happened. Sometimes in times of tragedy it helps to do something familiar. Rehearsal begins at 4pm this afternoon in the choir room. We will be serving a meal at 5pm in the Fellowship Hall for anyone that wants to eat, followed by a memorial vigil for Cole at 6pm in the Chapel. This is a time for people to come and share some of their favorite memories of Cole, and to celebrate his life. Whether you want to speak, or if you'd like to just listen to the stories of others, you're invited to come and celebrate the person Cole was. Anyone connected to our youth group family (adults and students) are welcome to attend. Friends, my earnest prayer for each of us is that we might somehow find peace in this dark hour, and that those who mourn might be comforted. The Psalmist reminds us that "The LORD is a shelter for the oppressed, and a refuge in times of trouble." May we all take some refuge in the spacious love of God. Please let me know if you have any comments or questions. Grace and peace, ---Christopher

We invite you to hear Dr. Charles Fay -- author, consultant, public speaker and CEO of the Love and Logic Institute -- in person at PVUMC. Hear him in worship, and register for one of his teacher or parenting workshops. His high-powered sense of humor and storytelling skills, connected to real-life examples, have compelled many to say, “The time went so fast…a very entertaining speaker,” and “I’m so relieved that he gave us things we can actually use rather than lots of theory and impractical stuff,” and “I first heard Dr. Fay fifteen years ago. I’m still using the skills I learned all those years ago!” Read more and register today! ... See MoreSee Less
