Thanksgiving Baskets

It’s hard to believe but it is time to begin preparing for our Thanksgiving baskets.  This year, we will be preparing 5 baskets for people connected to NUMC as well as basket for Newtown Social Services and the Interfaith AIDS Ministry in Danbury.

Please take  home a leaf or two and help us fill Thanksgiving baskets for those in need.  All donations should be back to the church by Sunday, November 12th.


Spiritual Gifts Workshop

Following the 10:00 a.m. Service on Sundays, October 29th and November 5th, Jim Willis will lead a two part workshop on Discovering Our Spiritual Gifts.  Jim is a Lay Servant currently completing his certification.

When we choose to follow Christ, God gives each of us spiritual gifts designed to help build up the church.  We’re all a unique blend of gifts and we have an opportunity to discover and use our gifts – otherwise the church is not as healthy and complete as God desires.  This workshop will help the attendees learn more about the Gifts God givers, include the spiritual gifts they have been given.

Every Christian has a gift and this is a great opportunity to find out what yours is! There is no charge and child care will be provided.


Join Pastor Lori in Prayer

Beginning September 18th, Pastor Lori will be in the sanctuary on Monday mornings from 6:30 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.
