Welcome to Emory Church, On the Square in New Oxford!

Emory Church is working with God in building a caring community that connects, discovers and serves together!


John Wesley is quoted as saying, “The world is my parish”. With Emory Church being right on the Square in New Oxford, we are blessed to have New Oxford as our parking lot. When you visit us please feel free to park anywhere around the square and the town.  We do reserve space directly in front of Emory for visitors and those who might need to have closer access to us.

From this Past Sunday

Discover the Love of Jesus

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Our Scripture focus was on John 2:1-11.

We took a look at Discover the Love of Jesus

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Psalm 97, Isaiah 53 and John 2.
  • CONNECT with the Love of Jesus.
  • DISCOVER how much Jesus Loves me.
  • SERVE from the Love Jesus has shown me.
  • Pray that I allow Jesus to Love me.

Sermon Slides: Discover the Love of Jesus


Our theme verse is Ephesians 4:4-6
"There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
  Please remember those that are home bound in prayer:

  • Phyllis Hull
  • Stan Wannop
  • Peg Wyckoff
  • Dotty Fidler
