Our Nurture Group offers a number of services to our church members, including visits to those unable to get out, we host several parties throughout the year for our Joyful Shephards, as well.
Prayers: The Main Street United Methodist Church has a "prayer chain" which is our speedy email system of alerting our group of interested participants that someone from the church or a family member, a friend, neighbor, co-worker or themselves would like to be lifted up in prayer. To do this, please contact Cynthia Morrissey by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meals: We are thrilled to be able to offer to church members and those in their immediate households our "Meals to Heal" program. This is a short term program we have set up specifically for those who are or have a family member who is hospitalized, is recovering from surgery or otherwise unable to provide meals for themselves or their family. Our volunteers cook a lovely meal and deliver it to your home - with deliveries made every 2 or 3 days. If you are a church member and this is something you need, please do not hesitate to call our office to set this up.
Rides to Appointments: Sometimes a church member may need a ride to an appointment. We encourage you to contact Caregivers, Inc. an agency that is fully set-up to do this in the great Nashua area - for further details contact: www.caregiversnh.org or 622-4948. There is a registration process, and they do need 2 - 3 weeks in advance to provide a ride. While this service is free and provided by their wonderful volunteers, it is always nice to offer to pay for gas, when possible.
