Sermon Series

December 2109

There is a certain blessing in not getting what we ask for.

Instead of getting something we expected, perhaps we get something we need, and are thankful for that later.  Occasionally we might get something better than what we asked for. Maybe we receive a complete surprise, something we didn't know we'd enjoy so much.

 

What are you expecting this Christmas? 

Join us as we ponder the players from the nativity scene, and ponder what they may have been expecting on that cold night so long ago. Did they receive the gift they'd asked for?

 

Dec 01 - Mary & Joseph

Dec 08 - the Shepherds

Dec 15 - Christmas cantata!

Dec 22 - the Magi

(plus, Children's Living nativity) 

Dec 24 - What are we expecting?

Mission/ Vision

Like every other Christian church, our Mission is defined for us by Jesus himself in

Matthew 28: 19-20. 

Everything we do is to be geared toward meeting this commission.

Therefore, our mission simply stated is:

To Make disciples of

Jesus Christ. 

How we imagine disciples are formed is our Vision.  At NUMC we are striving to make disciples of Jesus by becoming a church of:

Unqualified Acceptance

welcoming every person

"as they are, or as

they may become."  This means every-one.  Regardless.  

 

Resolute Grounding

promoting faith built upon

the fullness of Scripture,

the witness of Tradition and

the gift of Reason.

Tangible Empowerment

offering the tools needed to change one's life, to think for one's self, to impact one's world and to share God's grace. 

PHW

Join us each Sunday at the pub for Public House Worship - 9 AM at 

Indian Springs Brewing Co.

on the historic Neosho square.

Why?  

Mitch has been meeting all kinds of people he's dubbed "the spiritually independent;" folks who ask hard questions and don’t truck with easy answers. Friends who don’t fit in the boxes they feel placed in by church, but still want to be part of something bigger. Mates who aren’t OK with the status quo, but still pine for real, guided God-connections. Thus, PHW is an expression of church for folks who don’t really “do church.” 

Whatever PHW is, we want it to be generous without too much pre-defining. We desire it to be faithful. And we hope it leads you to make new connections with other folks, with God, & within yourself.  It's intended to be welcoming of all people without qualification; the unsheltered, uninitiated, misfit, red/blue, well-scrubbed or reluctant - we’re all in this thing together (appreciating that may be

our only rule.) 

So if you feel like a square peg, come on out to discover that God is something new. 

 

 

Welcome

If you're new to town or just looking to establish yourself within a worshipping community marked by Unqualified Acceptance, Resolute Grounding & Tangible Empowerment,   you can find a home at NUMC.  We pride ourselves on being a "thinking person's church" who welcomes and loves all persons...regardless.  

We strive to be founded on the best understandings of Scripture,  reason and tradition.  And we work to give you practical tools to think for yourself, change your life, and impact our world through grace.  

Pay us a visit and I'm confident you will be warmly welcomed, appropriately challenged, and will experience the Spirit's presence within our worship.

I look forward to meeting you soon.  

                                        Living Faith!
