NOW UMCs N.O.W. Info!
The NOW Parish Missions Committee is a group that is present in each of the 5 churches: Brewster, Drew-Carmel, Holmes, Lake Mahopac and Purdys. Its mission is simple:
Nurture our current congregations, parishioners and attendees at the 5 UMCs. Outreach to the community, the unchurched or the de-churched. Witness the love of Jesus Christ.
These are the 3 pillars of N.O.W.
- Nurture our current congregations, parishioners and attendees at any of our churches
- Outreach to the community, the unchurched or the de-churched.
- Witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
Parish Missions Committee
Our churches are active in many missions, nurturing, outreach and witnessing opportunities. The Parish Missions Committee is open to anyone in our congregations who have ideas for new opportunities. Please join us!
These are just a few of the ministries in which we are involved. Our world and communities need us to share Jesus's love!
