Welcome and thank you for visiting the new NAUMS website.  As stated in our mission statement we are a support organization to several programs that help the local church grow through the relationships with the youth if the tyioyth programs using the church.  We strongly support the PRAY program which the church may use to develop the understanding of faith of the individual youth.  We recommend the use of the approach and programs that are presented in the "Guidelines" publication of the church.  Also as a special program we provide bibles to the BSA high adventure centers at Philmont, Northern Tier and Sea Base.
