We are back!  Please come join us at the Nevada City United Methodist Church as we now are having a live Worship Service each Sunday at 10am. The Service is Live Streamed at 10am on Sunday as it occurs. Thus, it appears on our website at live while it happens. A video of the Service is also made available for viewing on our website.

This began Sunday July 4th at 10am with our new Pastor Gail Chiew. You are always most welcome to join us in church at 433 Broad Street! The Services will continue to be Live Streamed on our website as they happen at 10am Sunday so those not able to attend in person may view the Service on-line on their computers just as been done in the past. As noted above, videos of the Services are available for viewing on our website at any time you choose.

Like you, we have been most anxious for this to happen and welcome this return to normalcy!

Climate Change
From The Tidings
At some time during our lives, we most likely experience a loss of a family member or friend, sickness or some other tragedy. Having prayers lifted up for that person would be welcome. Our church has such a ministry. Our Prayer Chain Ministry is comprised of folks in our church who, when notified by email, will hold that person in prayer. If you would like to join this ministry or if you or someone you know is in need of prayers, please contact and you will be put on our prayer request list or added to our prayer chain ministry.

Report on Interfaith Food Ministry

by Eleanor Kenitzer


At the July Board meeting, we received great news about more grants received, totaling $124,000. These grants were awarded to cover the cost of the new heating/air conditioning and staff expenditure—which means all of OUR donations can help to feed our community! During COVID, IFM has been able to give out more food (clients have been able to come three times a month instead of two) and better food (more protein, veggies and fruit). The IFM gardens have helped to supplement with even more fresh, local vegetables.


Phil Alonzo, the Executive Director, continues to expand with new partnerships and also with educational and nutritional efforts that are made. Because of our new partnerships, IFM has added more families to our numbers, for a total of 11,320 people being fed! The average income for an IFM family is $14,452—$1210 per month.

To date in 2021, our church has donated $10,490.78.


The NEED IS GREAT~! I thank you for your continued generosity, your prayers, care and concern. These are our immediate neighbors who need us to help supply the necessities of life as we answer Christ’s call to care for his children!

Since we are now “in person” at church, we will resume our kids cart on the first Sunday of the month, collecting canned goods and money. There is also a basket in the Narthex, every Sunday, for good donations that you bring in.

What’s Up with Family fun Night?


I get it! We all want to get back to normal and back to our fellowship times together. But, I also get that we have to be extremely careful in this time of pandemic, with all of the new exploding virus numbers.


So--saying this, we’re planning to have our Family Fun Night on Sunday, September 25th, beginning at 5:00 PM, as usual. However, we will not have a taco bar, but a served plate (thus, no one will be touching your food except ME!). Menu to be given later.
