Are you wondering how to keep giving to the church? You can continue to give your offering to NBUMC in several different ways: 1)by mail: NBUMC, 1800 S. Northern Blvd., Independence, MO 64052; 2)by dropping off your check during regular office hours (9am-2pm Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday); or right here on our website by clicking on the PayPal button. You don’t have to give THROUGH PayPal, you can go to the option of giving by debit or credit card, which is also on the PayPal button. If you have questions, please call the office and we will help you learn how to do it. (816-252-7977). Even though we have been unable to worship in the building, we are having to keep up the insurance, utilities, trash pickup and salaries, as well as our missional ministries. Every bit you can give helps! And remember, “God loves a cheerful giver.”
The hottest place to volunteer (literally on some evenings) is Project Suppertime food pantry. Our regular volunteers have really stepped up to meet the increased need, and have recruited more people, including extended family members, coworkers and neighborhood and community residents and business owners. We also got a huge donation of money from the owner of Mugs Up restaurant to help us keep ministering to our community. Watch for pictures on Facebook and if you can’t volunteer, keep not only our volunteers but the clients in your prayers, as many are furloughed workers. We’re making a difference!!!
We are having an informal prayer service in the Chapel each Thursday night, from 6:30pm-7:00pm. You can come and go, take communion if you wish, and be anointed too, if you feel led. All you have to do is come to the Chapel between 6:30pm and 7:00pm.
The Project Suppertime Food Pantry is open every Thursday evening from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.
During this period of social distancing we are working our best to keep everyone safe by providing a drive-thru style of pick up.
Please keep in mind that during the winter our food pantry will be closed due to inclement weather any time the Independence School district is closed.
