The mission of this ministry to provide assistance, as we might be able and as funds are available, to any who find themselves with an urgent need on an immediate, short-term basis and/or until bigger and more established charities can be brought in to provide aid should a situation prove to be long term.
Of course, such a ministry is only as effective as the resources at its disposal. So with that, available funds are always an ongoing concern. That is where YOU can help make a difference in this new ministry at the NSUMC. Please consider making a donation from time to time to the NSUMC Benevolence Fund. A dollar here and a dollar there might be enough to help someone where there is no other immediate help available.
To make a donation of any amount to the Benevolence Fund, please donate via our Online eGiving portal located near the top of this page, see the NSUMC Lay Leader, Mark Johnson, the NSUMC Finance secretary, Tom Kinney, or drop an envelope into the collection basket with the words: "Benevolence Fund" written across it so our counters know where to direct it.
Please consider helping this new NSUMC ministry and let us all take part in fulfilling the directive of our Lord Jesus when He said:
"Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it (a kindness) to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’' (Matthew 25:40)

A few weeks ago the Transfiguration of Jesus was the subject of the Scripture reading during a NSUMC worship service. In that week's Call to Worship I mentioned I would publish a commentary addressing the message of the miracle and explaining the symbolic images as I see them embedded within the story. The commentary is now complete, published and available to be viewed. So, should one be interested in investigating the message and imagery of Christ's Transfiguration from a new perspective, please click on the link below.
Since we at the NSUMC have recently returned to live, in-person worship, please take a moment or two to view the video below produced by the First United Methodist Church of Covington, TN. The Pandemic Praise Team of the FUMCC wants all those returning to live worship services to remember 12 simple rules for a safe return to live worship. It is a cleverly constructed message based on the Christmas Carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Please give it your kind attention, and enjoy!
The NSUMC has recently instituted an Online Giving Portal where anyone may electronically make a gift or offering to the NSUMC via Credit Card or directly from a bank through a Checking Account or Savings Account. To make an electronic donation, for any purpose, Benevolence Ministry, Building Fund, Pledge offering or whatever, please click the secure link below and follow the prompts to make a one-time or reoccurring donation.
Thank you ever so much for your support!
...but do you know about God's Week, God's seven day/seven thousand year Week? Consider what Peter wrote in his letter: 2 Peter, Chapter 3:3-4,8-9 "...scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, 'Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.' " And more: "But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness..."
