NMC Pastors and Staff

God has a plan, and it will be accomplished! Amidst everything that is happening, my confidence remains firmly in Him.
There is GOOD NEWS in what's happening:
More people participated in our services yesterday than would have a month ago. Through various social media platforms (YouTube, Facebook Live, NMC Livestream), ministry thrived.

Small Churches and small groups connected virtually. I was amazed watching the social media interaction of these groups. Leaders are to be commended for pressing forward in spite of challenging times. I also love that our KidMin and Student Ministries continue to use social media platforms to encourage their groups.

NMC is daily providing five teams that are working with WaNee schools and Family Christian Development Center to distribute school lunches through the entire school district. The salt is getting out of the salt shaker!

Niel Diener and some of our Global Impact team friends are working with medical professionals to manufacture masks. A prototype has already been created with the correct materials to filter the air and assure protection from potential threats. The plan is beginning to take shape to bless local medical professionals with these masks. Church, everyone has a part to make kingdom impact!

NMC, thank you for finding ways to financially support the ongoing ministry. Some are doing it through online giving via our website at nmc.church/give or through the NMC App. Christy and I just made our first online gift last week. Others are putting their gifts in the mail. Thanks for your continued generosity!

Here's some INFORMATION that will be helpful to you:
The NMC Building will be closed as of 4:30 PM Monday
In every decision that the NMC leadership makes, we want to be wise and operate under the guidelines set by the Governor of Indiana. Because of the recent shelter-in-place order, the NMC facilities will be closed until further notice.

It's a fireside visit live with NMC senior leaders - Wednesday at 7:14 PM.
We will be live on Facebook, YouTube and NMC Livestream.
It's an all-church virtual gathering. I would encourage you to join us as we unite the NMC family for victory amidst our challenges.

YouTube has been added as a social media platform
In order to stay connected and enhance our spiritual communities, we are quickly learning the art of using various social media platforms. YouTube is our newest platform. You can help NMC enhance that platform by going here. Click the red subscribe button.

We will continue our virtual prayer gatherings nightly at 7:14 PM - Tonight and tomorrow (Monday, March 23, and Tuesday, March 24), we will use the existing room on Zoom. If you have the ZOOM app, the meeting number is 783-201-290, or anyone can simply call 312-626-6799 and then enter the meeting number 783-201-290, followed by #. Wednesday, March 25, we will be a part of Fireside Visit on Facebook, YouTube and NMC Livestream. On Thursday, March 26, we will move to a larger ZOOM room, which also means that we will have a different meeting number. You will receive that information on Wednesday.

I love these gatherings. It's been a delight to have Satyendra Basumata (Little Flock Fellowship in India), Michel Khalil (Greater Middle East Initiative), along with Darin and Laura Arnott (Southwest Indian Ministries) and our friend, Sammy Tippit, join us. There's a spot for you.

KEEP ENCOURAGED in the faith! HOLD TIGHTLY to the promises of God. Be a blessing to others. Resist the urge to feel hopeless. With God's help, we will get through this.

In Him,
Pastor Dave,

"The one who called you is faithful and He will do it!"-1 Thessalonians 5:24

Please understand that technology has limitations and interruptions. Thanks in advance for your understanding and grace.

In the NMC statement yesterday, the situation with the Coronavirus was called "ongoing" and "changing". That has certainly proven to be true.

Shortly after issuing yesterday's statement, our Governor announced a series of steps that would minimize social contact, lowering the risk of infection and the potential of seriously overtaxing our healthcare system. One of those steps was the appeal to limit any non-essential corporate gathering to no more than 250 people. (Governor's Statement)

Because we want to honor our Governor's request, because we have the technology to continue our services online, because we take seriously the health and safety of vulnerable people, we will not gather at the Nappanee Missionary Church building this Sunday. However, thanks to technology and our capable team of staff and volunteers, we can still have church together! All services will be offered online at www.nmc.church/livestream, in the NMC App, or on Facebook Live. These services will be at our regular times of 8:00, 9:30 and 10:45 AM. The services will include worship music, prayer and teaching. During this time, we especially encourage online giving at www.nmc.church/give or in the NMC App.

Future services, travel, programming and events will be evaluated as needed, with the safety of people as priority. This is an ongoing and changing situation. Every effort will be made to communicate clearly as decisions are made.

While our teams are fully prepared to offer an optimally safe environment during our gatherings, this recent development gives us new opportunities to be salt and light. As you plan to worship online this Sunday, consider inviting neighbors or friends that do not have a church home. Use this time of uncertainty to be positive, hopeful and full of grace. We are not shaken. Our God is faithful, powerful and in charge.

NMC is committed to doing everything possible to provide a safe and healthy worship environment and to care for the vulnerable. As in all of life, our trust is in our heavenly Father, who is still in control and will provide for His people. With that trust firmly in place, we commit to responding sensibly, without fear or panic, to all situations.

Considering worldwide developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), a team of NMC health professionals and staff has been assembled to provide wise and appropriate safeguards. This team is regularly monitoring developments and will implement appropriate standards and procedures as they become necessary. You will notice some of these changes this Sunday.

• There will be a concerted effort to keep high-contact surfaces disinfected throughout our service times.

• We will promote a non-touching smile or wave as you greet people. Our door greeters will do the same, and they will open the doors for you.

• Our offerings will be received differently, without passing plates. We will encourage on-line giving at www.nmc.church/give or through the NMC App.

• We will encourage staff and volunteers who are not feeling well to stay home.

• Student Ministries and KidMin have reviewed all systems and will implement additional safety and sanitary processes.

• Many other detailed measures will be put into action, all with the intent of maximizing a safe environment.

• These changes will cause some minor inconvenience, and we ask for an attitude of respect and grace through this event.

This is an ongoing, changing situation. We will give every effort to clearly communicate any changes. All future NMC travel, ministry trips, events and programs will be given a thorough risk assessment. We commit to doing what is best for the health and safety of our people.

If you or a family member have a weakened immune system, health concerns, are above the age of 60 or are feeling unwell, we encourage you to stay home and livestream our services at www.nmc.church/livestream, in the NMC App, or on the Nappanee Missionary Church Facebook page.

For all of us, follow the proper sanitary and health guidelines outlined by the CDC at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html.

Pray for the sick. Pray for wisdom for our leaders. Stay well and stay positive. God is in control. He can be trusted.
