Lisa Harper and Holly Christine Hayes will be speaking at the Ballard Convention Center in Madisonville, KY. Music will be by Rising Life. It is free August 2 & 3. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Conference begins at 6:00 p.m. Our District Superintendent has reviewed it and asked that it be shared by each church in the district.
The Annual Conference is putting together health kits for UMCOR. The goal is 2,000 kits. The Pennyrile District is responsible for contributing bar soap (bath size, 3 oz and up, individually wrapped). If you would like to help, please bring the soap to Petrie by Sunday, June 10 and place it in the box located outside the church office.
Vacation Bible School this year will have a theme of “Shipwrecked”. Get ready for an adventure to an uncharted island where kids are Rescued by Jesus! Your Shipwrecked VBS experience will be where kids are anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms. The hours have changed to 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Call the church office to sign up today. (270) 265-2298
Hello Petrie Memorial UMC!
My name is Joe Cox and I am very excited to join you all in July. I was born in Oklahoma but raised in Elizabethtown, KY. I attended Lindsey Wilson College where I played tennis and graduated with a Bachelors in Christian Ministries. I have spent the last four years attending Asbury Theological Seminary pursing a Master’s of Divinity, which I completed this May. I have been in ministry for 10 years beginning in camping ministry at Camp Loucon. Youth Ministry is my passion and is what God has called and equipped me for. I believe that youth are not just the church of the future, but that they are also an important part of the current church.
I enjoy watching and playing all kinds of sports. I particularly enjoy the Cubs and all Louisville sports. I prefer spending time outdoors kayaking, hiking, fishing and I’m excited to explore Todd County. I look forward to joining you soon and I can’t wait to see what awesome things God has in store.
Camp Loucon is coming right up! This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to have fun and learn about God at a camp that is fairly close to home. This camp is in Leitchfield, KY and offers campers lots of outdoor activities and a week of worship and memory making. Approximately 10 of our kids from Petrie have expressed that they would like to attend this year. The cost is: $219 for 2nd – 4th grade; $369 for 5th-12th grade. The church pays for half of the cost for each child to attend. We are looking for sponsors to pay the remaining half (or a portion of it) for each of the children to go. This would be: $110 for 2nd – 4th grade; $185 for 5th-12th grade. However, any little bit would help. If you would like to donate, please contact Emily Myers or Vicki Ross. We hope to have many Happy Campers this year!!
March is Petrie’s designated month to donate to the Interfaith Center. At this time they are in need of a variety of canned vegetables. They are also in need of feminine products. You may bring donations to the church or take them directly to the Interfaith Center, 602 South Streets Ave. Elkton.

Youth Presentation and Games for Noel
Noel is the young boy the youth are sponsoring through Compassion International. Noel will be 8 years old on February 14. We want to invite you to celebrate his birthday with us. We will have food, bible bingo, a presentation about Noel and an opportunity for you to fellowship with our youth group. You will also have an opportunity to bless Noel with a financial donation toward his birthday gift and monthly sponsorship. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to fellowship with our youth group and contribute to the escape from poverty for Noel.
If you plan to attend and have not already signed up, please contact the church office today or Thursday via email or phone (270-265-2298)
