NUMC Community & Church Programs
Fostering Connection In Our Congregation and with Our Community Partners
NUMC offers a wide array of opportunities for encounters with God, such as: spiritual reflection and renewal, Christian education and service, and growth and challenge in discipleship within the context of the life of the church.
Music & Arts
Celebrate and share God’s Word through the music and performing arts from choirs and handbell ensembles to instrumentalists and vocal soloists.
A week-long music/drama camp in August, Music Factory is a fun-filled, enriching opportunity for children from our church and surrounding community to nurture their faith through music and drama.
Our mission is to connect children and their families to Jesus through fun and inspiring ministry activities.
Every week, kids and teens hear about God’s love through hands-on learning designed to engage every personality and learning style. Then they learn to connect these lessons with their real lives, biggest struggles, and most pressing questions through practical application and honest discussion.
We offer Sunday Kids Church and small group activities during the 9:30 service for Pre-K to High School-aged children.
We also provide a nursery for babies 8-weeks to 4-years old.
We follow Safe Sanctuaries policies. You can find more information on that policy HERE.
Youth between the ages of 13 (currently in 8th grade) and 18 (not completed 12th grade) are invited to join us for our weekly gathering.
We will have food, fun, discussion & reflection.

College Student Ministries
The Wesley Foundation Campus Ministry is our student fellowship at the University of Delaware and hosts Bible study, small discussion groups, a prayer service, other events throughout the week, and an annual mission trip.
Adult classes on Sunday mornings include opportunities for traditional Bible study, topical faith issues, book/author studies, and short-term studies.
Our bright and inviting room provides print materials for all ages, including picture books, pleasure reading recommendations, DVDs, and nonfiction books.
Celebrations are a cornerstone of our faith journeys. Send us a message if you are looking for more information.
We affirm the sanctity of the marriage covenant that is expressed in love, mutual support, personal commitment, and shared fidelity between equal partners. Couples wishing to be married in our church should plan to inquire at least 6 months in advance to begin planning and scheduling pre-marital counseling.
Baptism is a symbol of new life and a sign of God’s love and forgiveness of our sins. We baptize by sprinkling and accept persons of any age for baptism.
Memorials/Celebrations of Life
The loss of a loved one is usually a difficult time, especially for the family of the deceased. It is during these times that it’s important to celebrate the life of the person who has died but also to come together as a community for mutual comfort and be reminded that in resurrection, Jesus conquered death.
