The PUMC Annual Fish Fry is back for 2021 on July 30 and 31!
An event the size of the Fish Fry needs a lot of volunteers. Volunteer signups for Fish Fry volunteers will occur in the main lobby on July 4, 11, 18, and 25 following both worship services. Visit pumc.org to volunteer if you can’t stop by the tables and want to volunteer.
PUMC’s annual Fish Fry is one of the largest outreach events of Plainfield UMC each year, welcoming neighbors and friends and serving tons of food (literally — tons!), with the profits supporting missions both near and far. Sunday School classes, youth groups, the PUMC Missions Committee, and other groups directly benefit from volunteering at this event. We are proud of the nearly 200 volunteers each year who participate by baking desserts, frying fish, serving in the main line, and so much more.
From the humble beginnings of welcoming home troops from WWII, the annual Fish Fry has been a staple in the community. The pandemic forced us to go virtual in 2020, but as our world begins to heal, we are ready for the return of the Fish Fry. With a reduced menu and safety precautions in place, we are prepared to welcome people back.
Philippians 4:13 says, “[We] can do all things through him who gives [us] strength.” God has given us the strength to guide us through the past year and a half, and he has given us the power to allow us to join in fellowship again. So, please consider joining us for good food and hospitality at this year’s fish fry.
