Adam Hamilton Study:  Moses

Pastor Lori is offering another Adam Hamilton study this fall: Moses. It is a six week study of the life and ministry of the most important person in the Old Testament. We will trace the journey Moses made from his birth to his years with the Israelites in the wilderness, and will learn what lessons we can glean from his life. We will meet Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. and/or Thursday afternoons from 1 to 2:30, depending on interest

Small groups are a powerful way of learning more about scripture and our faith, connecting with God in new ways and connecting with our neighbors here.

If you are interested, please speak to Pastor Lori so she can order you a book.


Pew/Bench Available

There is a 12 ft. bench on the bridge.  Our Board of Trustees are looking for a home for it.   Are you (or any of your friends) interested?     Call the church office 203-426-9998


Join Pastor Lori in Prayer

Beginning September 18th, Pastor Lori will be in the sanctuary on Monday mornings from 7:00 to 7:30 a.m. praying.

She hopes that you will join her as your schedule permits.

Her main focus in this time is to seek God’s direction for our church, its ministries, its worship, its place in the community and world. When folks bring other specific concerns, we will also pray for them!

The work that lies before us is exciting, challenging and BIG. Big things need prayer, most of all!

Live Feed of Church Services

We understand that sometimes you just can’t make it to church on Sunday Mornings.  For those rare occasions, we have begun to live-stream our Sunday morning services.

On the right side of this page, under NUMC Links is a new one called, Church Web Cam.  Click on it anytime Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and you will be able to see and hear the entire service.

This camera is only active on Sunday mornings.  So, if you click on it any other time, you might get the message “This Camera is Missing in Action.”  That just means that it is currently turned off.  Come back at 8:30 and you will be able click Play and see what you are missing.

Please note, this camera is not recording any information.  It is simply live-streaming during the service. If you have concerns or questions about the camera or its use, please contact the Church Office and we will arrange for someone to speak with you.


 Safe Sanctuary Policy
Below is a link to the revised NUMC Safe Sanctuary Policy as of 04/31/15.

NUMC Safe Sanctuary Policy 2015 – Final


  “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”

~ John Wesley ~


Wesley Covenant Prayer

I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing.

I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
