    Egg Drive Thru Canceled

    03/30/2020 - Pikeside Friends & Family, I regret to inform you that the decision has been made to cancel this event. After watching the news today; I don’t think it is feasible to move forward with this event. Earlier today, both the Governors of Maryland and Virginia issued stay-at-home orders. I have a feeling that West Virginia won’t be too far behind. That puts me in a little bit of a pickle; having states mandate people stay home and then I invite these same people to leave home and join us in our parking lot just doesn’t make much sense. So, to ensure we are keeping everyone safe, I thought it best call them off at this time.


    Thanks, God Bless and keep safe! Pastor Bill

    Prayer Shawl Ministry

    Created in the convenience of our homes

    Distributed from Pikeside UMC

    This ministry creates warm and cozy wraps representing the love of God and those that give it. We pray a blessing over them before the shawl is given, asking for God’s hand of healing on the recipient. The recipient does not need to be a member of our church, we reach out to all who need to know they are not alone—man, woman, or child. We also make “Chemo Caps” to keep the heads of chemotherapy patients warm. Contact the church office if you know of someone in need of these blessings or if you would like to volunteer for this ministry.
