Mission of the Month

Each month, the NUMC Outreach Team chooses an organization or initiative to support through monetary donations collected weekly. We call this our Mission of the Month. At times, you may hear these missions referred to as the “Advance Specials,” which is the historical term in our church. We use them interchangeably, so whichever term you use will be understood.


Through the Mission of the Month, our Outreach Team highlights and partners with ministries locally, nationally, and internationally to strengthen their work growing God’s kingdom. Our partnerships gained in 2023 were Lahaina UMC in Maui, Family Promise of Bucks County, The Syrian American Medical Association, A Woman’s Place, the Wrightstown Food Pantry, and much more.

February Mission of the Month:

The Mission of the Month (Advance) for February will help local families in need pay for food and heating. We have worked with now-retired Newtown police chief Martin Duffy for over 20 years. He is aware of local families who are struggling right now, and our Advance offering can make a big difference in the lives of these families during one of the coldest times of the year. Please consider giving whatever you can so we, as a congregation, can help these families by sharing God’s love. You can use the blue envelopes located in the pews in the Sanctuary and put them in the offering plate, or you can send a check to Newtown United Methodist Church, 35 Liberty Street, Newtown, PA 18940. Please mark your check or envelope “Advance for February.”
