Help Support the Nehemiah Mission!

Nehemiah Mission Fundraiser: April 21

Nehemiah Mission, located at W. 65th and Bridge Ave. in Cleveland, serves the homeless and indigent on the near west side of Cleveland. They also provide safe housing for a number of immigrant families. Several churches participate in Bread on the Bridge, a free hot lunch provided every Tuesday afternoon. But the kitchen is in need of significant refurbishment: the commercial stove and refrigerator being the most important. 

On Sunday, April 21st from 4-6 pm, North Olmsted United Methodist Church will be hosting a fund-raising event for Nehemiah Mission. 

Appetizers, desserts and beverages will be available while listening to our gifted pianist and organist, Javier Gonzalez. Rev. Mike Parisher, Director of Nehemiah Mission, will share his hopes for the Mission. 

For additional information about Nehemiah:  www.nehemiahmission.org 

Donation is $25.00 with the check payable to Nehemiah Mission and sent to:

North Olmsted, Oh 44070

We will deliver the tickets to you.

It’s from the cross that Jesus’ full humanity draws us closest to him.” Contact sundayschool@noumc.org with any questions.

Chair Yoga Starting in April

Chair Yoga for the Faithful will be offered the third Sunday of each month starting in April following worship. Restore body, mind, and spirit through breath, movement, and meditation.

Claudia Taller, YA 200 certified instructor, will lead you through 30 minutes of renewal.

Adult Bible Study: Revelation: Extravagant Hope Begins April 16th and 18th

What if the Book of Revelation isn’t meant to scare us or to be a mystery? What if God saved the best for last?

What if His final word is really a rescue plan? From numerical signs and monsters, this final book of the Bible can be difficult to wrap our minds around, but the Book of Revelation reminds us of God’s power and promises and its message is intended to bring us hope! Join us as we study the book apocalypse, beginning April 16th on Tuesday evenings at 7:30PM and April 18th on Thursday mornings, at 11AM. The study booklet cost is $16, and includes access to the accompanying streaming video. The study is 6 weeks long and will conclude at the end of
May. Please email Wendy at sundayschool@noumc.org for more information or to sign up. There will be a sign-up sheet on the welcome table in Fellowship Hall as well.

Technology Trainees Needed

Do you know how to push a button?  The booth crew is looking for some backup!  We would like to invite people to train with us to learn how to run the audio-visual booth.  Training will consist of a brief session to familiarize you with the equipment and procedures, and plenty of opportunities to stand with us in the booth during services to learn hands-on.  Contact John or Phil Wolter or email webmaster@noumc.org.
