Moultonboro UMC Visitation Ministry
The MUMC Visitation Ministry has recently received several new persons who are engaging in regular visits with those who are unable to get out to church and are more or less confined to home, nursing facilities, retirement centers, and hospitals.
The purpose of the Visitation Ministry is to provide informal, yet Christian care; much like that which would be experienced in church. If you would like to have some caring person visit with you or you know of someone who could use some kindness and displace a little loneliness, then we have a person who might answer that need.

MUMC sells shopping/gift cards and we receive a donation back for selling them to you. Here‟s how it works. Let's say you buy a shopping card for Heath‟s in the amount of … $100 (Smaller denominations are available). Heath‟s will then donate $10 to our church! You obtain the full amount; the donation comes from the company – not from you!

Come see us. Ask your neighbors to join us and they probably will. We will mail cards if needed so even people in other states can participate.
These gift cards can be used nationally and you will always get 100% of your purchase price. We order on Sundays and we will receive the cards in 5-7 days. You can order and pick up at our church or via postal service. Thank you for your support. 603-476-5152.
