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.

June Mission of the Month:

The Mission of the Month (Advance) for June is A Woman’s Place. Founded in 1976, A Woman’s Place is the only domestic violence organization in Bucks County. The staff provides a free 24-hour confidential hotline, and a full range of assistance and support services for victims of abuse and domestic violence. They and their children can live in a full-service residential shelter and receive individual and group counseling, legal and medical advice, and prevention education. There are children’s programs available. A Woman’s Place hopes everyone can live in a society where all individuals are safe in their relationships.

If you would like to help A Woman’s Place, you can use the blue envelopes located in the pews in the Sanctuary. You can also send a check to Newtown United Methodist Church, 35 Liberty Street, Newtown, PA 18940. Please mark your check “Advance for June.”
