NSUMC Benevolence


The mission of the Benevolence ministry is 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 larger 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 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)

"The Journey”

Our Advent Bible study beginning this week on December 2, 2021, is called "The Journey" and will use videos from Adam Hamilton to retraces the actual path of Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in a fascinating look at the birth of Jesus Christ.  Using historical information and archaeological data, the videos will provide the basis for presentations by Mark Johnson and Rev. Jim Mentzer on the stories surrounding the holy birth. 
We will meet for four Thursdays in December, starting on December 2, from 7 to 8 pm.  You can either join us in-person at North Salem UMC downstairs in the Fellowship Hall, or on-line using Zoom.  There is no need to purchase any materials for this study - all you will need is your favorite copy of The Bible - so we hope you will join us in whichever mode feels more comfortable.

December 2 – we will learn about Mary of Nazareth as we focus on Luke 1: 26-38. (Leader: Jim Mentzer)

December 9 – we will talk about the shepherds' angelic visitation and subsequent visit to the stable as we focus on Luke 2:1-20 and consider what Luke says about Jesus' connection to the priesthood - both physically and spiritually. (Leader: Mark Johnson) 

December 16 – we will explore the visit of the Wise Men as we focus on Matthew 2:1-12 and learn more about who they were; how they knew about the time of the Messiah's birth; and what they revealed about Jesus and his "kingship".  (Leader:  Mark Johnson)

December 23 – we will encounter Joseph of Bethlehem as we focus on Matthew 1:18-24 and learn about Bethlehem and Joseph's roots there. (Leader:  Jim Mentzer)

Come join us Thursday evenings @ 7:00 p.m. as we undertake our Journey to Bethlehem!

There are some things new and enjoyable on our website that all should take a gander at. One is a link below to the Merrimack Valley Life website and to a story about the Stickney brothers of Salem, NH. Anyone who has a history with the North Salem United Methodist Church should find the story presented at the link very interesting. Please check it out and be sure to take note of our own late and great Wally Stickney!

And two, check out the "Happenings" page to see who have just received their first new Sunday School Bibles!

Additionally, click the link below to see an article published on the website

 "The Conversation" that may be of great interest to those familiar with the story of the destruction of Sodom and the rescue from the city of Abraham's nephew, Lot. Both events are depicted in the Book of Genesis. The article is thought provoking indeed. And so with that, everyone is encouraged to give it a read.
