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.

Sunday school is held at 9:00 a.m. for all ages with Worship at 10:00 a.m.

Hope in the Now and Not Yet

Sunday, December 1, 2019

Scripture: Romans 8:22-27

Sermon:  Hope in the Now and Not Yet

Welcome to the season of Advent!  

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Week 49 of Coast to Coast readings. 
  • CONNECT with the now and not yet of salvation.  
  • DISCOVER watchful, expectant waiting in this season of Advent.  
  • SERVE the Lord through worship and song—come for an evening of instruments and praise tonight at 6:00.  
  • Pray for the Spirit to help give voice to that which we cannot articulate but hope and long for in our inmost selves.

H.O.P.E. -
Hold On, Pain Ends

 


Our theme verse is 

So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

         2 Peter 1:19 NRSV

 

 

  Please remember those that are home bound in prayer
