Spotlight: The Newtown United Methodist Church

Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors

The Newtown United Methodist Church (NUMC) has an extended fellowship, study, community action, and worship history. It also emphasizes lay involvement and lay leadership. This emphasis on the community means that everyone in the church is a “minister,” gifted and empowered to do good work.   

 Our goal is to bring grace, mercy, justice, and healing to our hurting world. To that end, NUMC sponsors an array of programs during the year.

This past autumn, NUMC sponsored a series of wellness seminars, “BECOMING A BETTER YOU,” conducted by therapist Richard Yahn.

Our United Methodist Women provide the components for a complete holiday dinner twice a year at Thanksgiving and Easter to local families in need. The food baskets are distributed to families in need in the local area with the help of a local retired police chief.

The United Methodist Woman also supports A Woman’s Place, the Bucks County Family Services Group, and Libertae. These organizations help women and families in need.

Each year the United Methodist Men select a significant mission project and work together to raise funds to accomplish our mission goal.

 NUMC has participated in Family Promise of Lower Bucks Mission in the past.

NUMC decorated its Angle Tree for the Philadelphia Methodist Home for Children at Christmas as part of a decades-long tradition. Members of the church donated gifts and gift cards to help brighten the holidays for children in need.

We encourage you to visit us and learn about our programs.
