Community Garden


NRUMC’s community garden is located across the street (overflow parking lot) from the church. Lease a 5’ X 10’ raised bed ($25) or a full size 5’ X 20’ ($50) raised bed with complete discretion of what vegetables to grow with the understanding that at least 50% of your harvest will go to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.

Garden members participate twice a month in Wednesday/Saturday/Sunday group harvesting activities and perform an additional 4 hours of community workday labor during the year. What a great way to experience community and friendship with your fellow church members! Individuals, circles, and families are all welcome to participate in this ministry. Green thumbs are helpful, but not required! If you are not interested in leasing a garden bed, we can always use volunteers to help with the picking.

Each year, our garden volunteers grow and donate about 6,000 lbs of fresh vegetables to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. The Food Shuttle provides fresh vegetables and fruits to local individuals/families in need. Visitors to the garden are always welcomed!

For more information, email Julie Barnes or Pam Hartigan. Space is limited.

Mexico Mission Trip


NRUMC has been in mission in Mexico since 2003. The connection is with Faith Ministry in McAllen, Texas. The ministry was started by a Mexican American business man with retail stores in Texas. He recognized a need for affordable housing and medical care needs for people migrating to the border. He sold his business interests and founded Faith Ministry. The ministry is faith-based and centers in churches and first-line medical clinics along the border. The barrios (colonias in local language) are where people leaving bad living conditions in other areas of Mexico migrate hoping for a better life for their families. The ministry builds 12′ x 24′ concrete houses for families who contribute 8 months of labor for others who have been approved for houses. They also provide first-line medical care in the communities they serve and feeding programs for the children. To date we have financed and built 39 houses for people in need. In addition, we have sent a medical team to help in the clinic, helped support vocational programs, supported children with scholarships for school and provided funds for Christmas season programs that provide gifts for children and funding for food during the holidays. If you are interested in more information, please email Jay Mackie or Julie Bass. For more information about Faith Ministry go to faithministry.org.
