In-Person Worship Sign-Up (through May 23)

If you would like to attend worship, please sign up online.

Helpful things to know about online sign-up—

  1. Quantity? is the number of half pews that you will need.

  2. How many attending? is the number of people sitting in the pew.

If you don't have access to the internet, please call the office and a staff member can sign you up. Need help with signing up online? Check out the video below that shows how to do it step by step.

The service will still be livestreamed on Facebook and will be available on the Live tab and later on YouTube for viewing anytime.

In-Person Worship with No Reservations (starting May 30)

Church Council met on Tuesday, May 12, and developed new protocols for worship. Starting Sunday, May 30, we will no longer have a reservation system or taped off areas on the pews. We will instead rely on the ushers to seat people at a distance of six feet. Masks will still be required, and ushers will still dismiss rows starting at the back.

Just a reminder—we are social creatures, and it is so nice to be back in church to see and worship with one another. Everyone has a different comfort level for getting close to others, though, so please keep your distance and wait until you're outside to catch up with each other. This goes against our normal human instincts, so it's something we need to remember to do for each other.

Sunday Worship—9 a.m. Live Streamed and (past Live Streamed services) on Facebook

You can find our live stream (and past Live streamed) worship services on our church Facebook page on the "Live" tab.

If you don't have Facebook, you can still watch live (and see past live services) by going to https://www.facebook.com/Nevada-First-United-Methodist-Church-801001673281648/live_videos/

All are welcome!

Postponement of General Conference Explained

Here is a link from Pastor Mike to an article written by Bishop David Bard, Interim Bishop, Minnesota Conference that more fully explains the decision of postponing the General Conference until 2022.

Giving Back to God

Since we are not passing the offering plate, we encourage you to continue to remember your church financially during this time. Offerings can be mailed to 1036 7th Street, Nevada, IA 50201 or dropped in the mail box by the staff entrance on the north side of the building (the door that faces the public library.).

This might also be a time to consider electronic direct giving. Automatic Debit Forms are available from the office or click this form. Or, if you do online banking, you can set up your own one-time or recurring offering. Even after we resume services, the offering plates will be located in the back of the sanctuary for a while.
