Founded in 1798, NUMC is an exciting and vibrant community of believers, seekers, and skeptics in the heart of downtown Nicholasville, Kentucky. Our congregation is made up of people from all different walks of life and with a wide array of gifts and talents; each time we gather, it is a truly unique experience!

NUMC is young and old, moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, singles and couples, families and friends, students and teachers, lost and found! We welcome hundreds each week from Jessamine and Fayette Counties and we’re also home for many students and faculty from Asbury University and Asbury Theological Seminary, both located just a few minutes down the road in Wilmore.

We invite YOU to come, see, and be a part of what God is doing in our community!

Join us for “Passion: The Amazing Intentionality of Jesus the Christ”
When you think of the Passion narrative of Lent and Holy Week, what do you think of?

PASSION is a kind of waiting and watching… waiting and watching for what other people are going to do. Jesus went to Jerusalem to announce the good news to the people of that city. And Jesus knew he was going to put a choice before them: 1) Will you be my disciple? or 2) Will you be my executioner?

That is the great drama of Jesus’ passion… He had to wait upon how people were going to respond. How would they come? To betray him or to follow him?

If you think about it, all action ends in passion because the response to our action is out of our hands. That is the mystery of work, the mystery of love, the mystery of friendship, the mystery of community – they always involve waiting. And that is the mystery of Jesus’ love. God reveals himself in Jesus as the one who waits for our response.

Beginning Sunday, February 22, we are going to look at the amazing intentionality of Jesus the Christ and the decisions he made connecting every moment to the cross. Will you take this journey with us?
