We were recently graced with Laurie Prinzivalli giving our morning message.  Thanks Laurie for all you do!
BPUMC Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich

Laurie Prinzivalli gave our Sunday message to the kids and congregation, based on being rich in the Lord.  She explained first to the children that being rich is not all about money, jewels or possessions. We have more possessions than we need.  We should instead look at being rich in the Lord.  Every morning we get up out of bed is a gift of God.
We welcomed two little babies into the world this week to members of our church family. Leah Cynthia, daughter of Suzanne Heggie and Jeff Phillips was born on 10/7/16.  She is the granddaughter of Russ Heggie and the late Cindy Stickney Heggie, and the great-granddaughter of Helen Stickney.      Caden Jacob Wilmott was born on 10/6/16 to Britni and Jacob Wilmott, grandson of Sandy and Brian Wilmott.  Congratulations to all, and anxious to someday meet these precious ones!

Thanks to everyone who helped with the 54-A adopt a highway road clean up on 10/5.  With 10 of us working together, we got the job done in just about an hour, on a sunny autumn day.

Many of our church members will be singing patriotic songs at our area nursing homes on Sunday 11/13, and the Keuka Comfort Home to celebrate Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, beginning at 2:30 at Clinton Crest.  Please consider joining us.  The residents really enjoy our voices, and often join in on the familiar songs.

Don't forget to sign up for the Turkey Walk!  It is on October 30th at 1:00pm beginning at the Penn Yan Presbyterian Church.  Walkers and sponsors are needed.  Monies collected provide Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys for food baskets given out around these holidays.

Lastly, please help us ring the bells on November 23 from 9a-5p at Tops market in Penn Yan.  The bell ringing is the largest fund raiser for "Yates County Christmas".

Our snowbirds are beginning to depart for warmer climates.  Safe travels and look forward to your return in the spring!
