NUMC Choir, Wednesdays at 6:30pm at the Church

The choir room is directly behind the altar. 
We have a wonderful library of anthems (hymns) – over 200. We have accompanying discs to go with each anthem thanks to Margaret Hufstedler who records each anthem as we purchase them. Our choir members are small in number but mighty! We need more so we can really show our special music in full choir fashion. We do enjoy our weekly evenings in the church. The choir is able to practice for two months in advance for worship services. Weekly practice and weekly services can be challenging commitments, but the fellowship and the love of singing together is worth it. Come join us! We need you!

Sunday School

In the summer, Sunday mornings starting at 8:45am is a time for people of all ages to learn, grow and develop a faith that lives and breathes! Learn how you can dive deeper!
In non-summer months, there are several adult classes available. One focuses on Biblical learning, the other is a bit more contemporary and explores books, literature and topics that make us reflect on our daily interactions with our peers, family and workplace.
Teenagers connect in classes that are mentored by young minded instructors who engage them in lively conversations based on current movies, news and hot topics. They may take a quick trip to a local fast food restaurant for their Sunday morning class or engage in a hands on mission opportunity to learn the many ways to connect to the Holy Spirit.
Our younger children have inspiring teachers who engage them in numerous activities to teach them the gospel and to prepare them to go into the mission field.

Men’s Group, Saturdays at 8:30 AM

It’s pretty simple. Our men are a group who love food and fellowship! They meet the first Saturday of the month to do just that – eat and visit. It may be hot outside but these guys fellowship inside and boy can they cook and they sure LOVE to eat! But they equally love sharing their love of the Lord through community projects and helping those in need. Our men whole hardheartedly invite you to join them for breakfast. Then explore the possibilities to share your time, talents and gifts! There is a bigger mission to continuously find ways to serve our church and community to spread the awesome love of our Lord.

Working in Worship

There are a lot of opportunities to be a part of our Sunday morning worship services! Be a Greeter and welcome those coming to worship by handing out bulletins and welcoming them to church. Be an Usher – men, women and youth! Our young Acolytes bring the Light of Christ into church at the beginning of the services. Be a Reader and read the morning’s scripture verses during the service. Like technology? Work the sound room and run the graphics for the service. Are you musical? Share your talents – we have the choir, organ, piano and other musical opportunities just for you!

How Do I Meet People?

Our church is a place for all! Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, or whatever your walk of life, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. 
Summer Vacation Bible School
Volunteer every July as many opportunities are available to help the children.

Mission Work

Our church is indeed a mission church. There are so many ways to get involved!
Watch for opportunities to travel outside of our area to help others affected by flooding, fire, and poverty. We have been to El Salvador, Mississippi, Southwest Virginia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Yes, we often help those right in our own community such as building porches, doing yard work, minor inside home work or whatever is needed to help improve the lives of those in need.
