If you're in a Small Group, please don't forget to register your attendance on FellowshipOne. It helps us out a lot when reporting for church conference each week!
We don’t anticipate taking any breaks unless we have a lot of people out of town for Easter. Then we may skip April 18th if need be.
We plan to continue to use Zoom for our meetings on Mondays at 6pm. Pastor Leah will lead discussions, utilizing corresponding DVDs. She will provide the Zoom information. As always, we welcome new members.
When you were baptized, your parents and everyone in the congregation promised to love and nurture you, teaching you about Jesus so that you would grow up knowing God's love. Baptism is a way for parents to say, "I believe in the promises God has made in the Bible to love and care for my child, and I want my child to walk in that love." Baptism is also a way of saying, "Yes!" to God's invitation to enter the community of faith.
Our Godly Play baptism story allows us to weave in the trinity (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), the light through candles and the blessing using water. It also grants us the opportunity to present the importance of each of each person and the name that they received. This is a great opportunity for children to recount their baptism and to revisit Jesus' baptism. As our story tellers retell the story, they will recreate the light of God and then, when the lesson ends, the children can take that light of God into the world to share it with their family, friends and neighbors.
For this week’s Sunday School lesson, we invite parents to bring their children to Sunday School at our 10AM service time and let them revisit the gift of being part of a rich history and a welcoming Christian community.
Mark your calendars! There will be a clean up of the Sanctuary on Saturday, January 8th beginning at 9:00am. Contact Nancy Vineyard if you wish to volunteer.
The church office will be closed for the holidays on the week of December 26th and will re-open at regular hours on January 3, 2022. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and will see you in the New Year.
Come to the church parking on December 18th from 7pm-8pm for a live Nativity drive-thru!
If you would like to be part of the event, we are inviting people to stand, wave and wish the cars driving through a Merry Christmas! If you want to dress in your favorite holiday sweater and share some Christmas cheer, please arrive by 6:45 so that you are able to park. If you have any questions, please contact Carey Johnson (email@example.com)

North Scottsdale United Methodist Church is offering the “FIRE & ICE INTERACTIVE SCIENCE SHOW” in the NSUMC fellowship hall at 10am on Sunday, Dec. 19th while the adults are in the sanctuary enjoying the CHRISTMAS MUSICAL CELEBRATION. All children ages 5-18 are asked to join us in the fellowship hall (the large room just east of the sanctuary) for a FREE show that is open to the community. NSUMC is hosting the Mad Science “Fire & Ice Science Experiment Show". The NSUMC “Christmas Musical Celebration” is best suited for children ages 12 and up. You know your child and what works best for them. All are welcome at either experience.
This year the interactive show will be a presentation about fire, ice and snow! This spellbinding S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) special event will introduce children to the power of fire and magic dry ice. Mad Science offers hands-on elementary-level workshops for students that complement concepts they're learning in school. Their interactive approach is sure to give students a deeper understanding of fundamental scientific principles.
