Pound United Methodist Church is happy to announce that they are planning to open for regular worship service Sunday, February 14. The message will be brought my Pastor Randy Carter, who is very excited to welcome everyone back to church for worship! Please remember that social distancing and masks are encouraged to protect the congregation and community as a whole. 


So many families are suffering from grief at this time. Please be with all those families who have lost loved ones, and who have loved ones battling illness during this time. Please also remember the family of Christopher Tompkins, who passed away February 5 surrounded by his loving family. 

all in this together

Let’s all be much in prayer for all of our front line, and essential workers as we continue to battle COVID 19. I pray that we all remember that everyone is doing their best to navigate all the changes that we are seeing to our day to day lives. Please be patient and kind to those around you, and remember that everyone you see is dealing with a battle you know nothing about. Be kind, be patient, and be a light to others during these trying times. 

Remeber that the Blessings box is available for anyone in need and is located beside Napa at the Pound Food Bank. Any donations that you would like to make to the Blessings Box are greatly appreciated!
