In-Person Worship and Groups Canceled

Beginning on  June 15th 2020 Newman United Methodist Church entered into phase 2 of our reopening plan (linked below). In-person Sunday worship services are still being held online only. The church office remains closed. Only authorized staff and volunteers are working in the church. Essential services are continuing to operate (HIV Alliance, Red Cross Blood Bank, and 12-Step Groups).  Some NUMC groups are permitted to gather outside for meetings. Masks/face coverings are required in church buildings unless working alone in an enclosed office space.  NUMC is working hard to implement and follow all Oregon Health Authority, CDC, local, and denominational guidelines. We are committed to the safety of our congregation and the community we serve. Please help slow the spread by keeping your in-person contacts minimal and by staying home whenever possible. 

The Church office will be closed during this time.  If you need to get in touch  with us please leave a message and we'll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.  

ONLINE WORSHIP:  Join us Sunday's at 10am on Facebook for a livestream worship opportunity. The video will be available for viewing later on Newman's Facebook page and it will be available by Monday afternoon on the website under the WORSHIP ONLINE tab.

  • Video Message from Rev. Ryan

  • Giving

    Even though we are not worshiping together in-person, it is still important that we share in our gifts. Newman's staff, facility, utilities, and ministry still go on and require funding to operate. We would ask that you continue to support the church during this time as you have generously done so in the past. 

    You can give online by clicking HERE!

    Or, you can give to the church by mailing a check to our mailing address:

    Newman UMC

    106 NW F Street #951

    Grants Pass, OR 97526

    Or, you can give electronically via the GivePlus mobile app for smart phones. Go to your app store (google play on android) and download the GivePlus app. Once you download the app you will be able to search for Newman United Methodist Church.
