Alex Dumm:
I joined PUMC in 2019.
I was drawn to PUMC by the friendly people I encountered from the first day I worshipped here. However, it is the variety of ministries and learning opportunities that offer us so many ways to share in God’s love with so many others that was the sure draw for me. What a blessing for us all.
Sheri Hilty:
I joined PUMC in 2015.
What I appreciate the most about Powell United Methodist Church are the people I’ve met who have helped me deepen my faith in Christ and grow my knowledge about the Bible. I treasure the relationships I’ve built through both worship participation and through volunteering with our Children’s Ministries program. I love that PUMC has so many opportunities to serve and to give back both to the church and to our community.

I love that PUMC is such a welcoming place. I feel uplifted when I go to church on Sunday morning and see so many smiling faces. I am also grateful to be a part of the effort the church puts into serving the community.
Kathy Perry:
I joined PUMC in 2002.
Being connected with hope-bringing people is what I like best about PUMC; there is a familial sense of belonging. I particularly love the wide ranging variety of small group opportunities where relationships are created, fostered, and deepened.
Julie Piper
I joined PUMC in 2015.
PUMC is a big enough church that there are lots of people, but not too big that you feel lost. My husband, Matt, and I also like that there are kids and families so that our daughter can meet kids her age and also attend church with kids from school. I really appreciate all the book studies and bible studies to keep my spiritual being fed.
Chuck Ring:
I joined PUMC in 2018.
My wife, Mary, and I were both raised in Christian homes and have always enjoyed becoming deeply involved in all aspects of our church families. Powell UMC is a strong, family oriented, faith-based community that allows us the opportunity to be part of sharing what God has done in our lives with others through a strong outreach programs while creating a warm sense of belonging with our wonderful friends in this congregation.
Mark Scott:
I joined in PUMC 2002.
That there are so, so many ways this congregation, from the leaders, to the members, to the children, serve as living witnesses and servants to the faith, joy and love of Christ, and yet still open to expanding our reach. It’s truly humbling.
Faith Williams:
I joined PUMC in 1997.
The warm welcome we experienced from members drew my husband and me to join PUMC, and the focus on missions locally and around the world is one of the things we love most about the congregation. It is a privilege to work along side so many others who are dedicated to being the hands and feet of Christ in our world.
Terry Troutman:
I joined PUMC in 2007.
The church family helped me through the loss of my wife and the friendships I have formed at PUMC are a major part of my life. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunities our church offers to be involved in mission work here at home and in the “ world” as we spread Gods word.
