New Sharon United Methodist Church
Where Friends Become Family
A Message From the Pastor
Hi! Welcome to the website of New Sharon United Methodist Church! I came as pastor to NSUMC in July 2011 and have discovered for myself that NSUMC is a warm and diverse Christian community of members, regular attenders and friends who are committed to living out the message of God’s unconditional love and the teachings of Jesus Christ in the church, in our community and in the world.
As disciples and followers of Jesus Christ, we firmly believe that the core of our mission and ministry as a community of faith is rooted in the Great Commission: “Go therefore into all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Simply put, we affirm and believe that God has called us to “find them, bring them in, grow them up and send them out” and that we are to accomplish this through worship, growth, and service - to God and others.
On behalf of the members and friends of New Sharon UMC, it is our desire to both serve and be of service to God by ministering to and with you.
So, our website is one of the many vehicles through which we are able to accomplish this task. I hope that you will find our website informative, inviting and inspiring!
In every way, my hope and prayer is that you will always be open to and allow the Spirit of God to speak to your heart and that the warmth, welcome and atmosphere of love and care that you encounter through this community of faith will restore, refresh and renew your spirit as we seek to glorify God “in spirit and in truth.”
Know that you have an open invitation to join us for worship every Sunday and that we look forward to sharing and celebrating the journey of faith with you.
Grace and peace,
Pastor Terry Pollard
