Ministries

 


At New Tazewell United Methodist Church, we strive to meet the needs of people of all ages, backgrounds, and situations.  We sponsor both a cub pack and a scout troop of the Scouts of America.  Our active committees include Hospitality, Community Education, Seniors Ministry, Care Giver Ministry, and the Sew-N-So's.  These groups seek out the needs of their various focus groups and create and sponsor classes, activities, and events to meet those needs.  Our church also features such activities as Bible study series, covered dish dinners, Memorials (see our collection of stained glass windows), Trunk-Or-Treat night, Thanksgiving baskets, and Christmas and Easter cantatas by our choir.  One of our more popular outreach programs is our Timely Topics series.  These are sessions of general interest which are open to the public.  Near the start of the COVID pandemic in 2020, NUTMC began working with other churches in the community in bringing Second Harvest food banks to families in Claiborne County.

NTUMC regularly supports the Red Bird Mission in Kentucky (http://rbmission.org), the Claiborne Hunger Ministry, and the Inner City Slickers (https://innercityslickers.com/) program.  We also support international relief efforts to a church in Cuba (https://www.cubaministry.org/) where our church helps supply food, medicine, and general toiletries to the pastor and the members of our sister church in Guatao, Cuba.
