VBS 2016 Mission Project Update
Thank you to Senior Girl Scout Troop #297 for leading an excellent VBS Mission Project and letting us participate in your Silver Award Project! We are so excited that our congregation and campers donated over 500 books, dozens of headsets, earbuds and CD's players and nearly $400 to purchase more!
Your leadership shows that there is a reason the scouting community will be honoring all of you young lady's with the Silver Award!
We are blessed that you shared this with our community!
VBS Mission Project 2016
Every summer during NSUMC’s Summer Day Camp, we ask camper families to help us help other children. This year we are asking our camper families to help us support “Save the Family Shelter,” a ministry that helps families get back on their feet. This shelter is an outreach of our denomination’s U.M.O.M (United Methodist Outreach Ministry) organization. NSUMC would like to put our faith into action by collecting a children’s book and earbuds for this project. If your family is not able to shop, we will be grateful for a $10 donation instead. These sweet families at “Save the Family Shelter” do not have the financial ability to purchase books for their children and some cannot read or speak English. The average age at this shelter is 6 years old.
This mission project will allow our Girl Scout Troop #297 to support their Silver Award and many young families at the shelter. These ladies will read and record the donated books onto CD's, and create a library for the “Save the Family Shelter.” We are also asking our congregation members to make financial contributions towards new CD players for the shelter as well.

WOW! Amazing results from our VBS Foster Care Bike mission project! As of 11:00 a.m. on June 28th, the congregation and V.B.S. campers donated over $1,000! These are just the funds that were handed to our mission coordinator, not including the tally from the offering plate! Check Facebook later this week for the grand total! We are so excited to be able to make 10 little foster care girls dreams' come true with BRAND NEW bicycles! Thank you to our wonderful congregation for helping the children support Together We Rise, Foster Care Coalition and the local foster care group home! NSUMC members rock!
VBS Day Camp 2015 Mission Project
Our mission project for this year's vacation Bible school camp is Together We Rise. Together We Rise organization helps children navigate through the foster care system. Our church is so proud to be a part of this project that can impact so many children. We purchased t-shirts from them and wore them during our camp. Additionally, we requested a donation of $10 per each camper so collectively we can purchase bikes for foster care children in the metro Phoenix area. Donations may be made the week of V.B.S. and during the the V.B.S. Celebration worship service.
