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.

From this Past Sunday


Sunday, December 25, 2018

Our Scripture focus was on Isaiah 40:21-31.

We took a look at Hope.

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Psalm 62, Jeremiah 33 and Isaiah 40.
  • CONNECT with the Hope of Jesus.
  • DISCOVER living a life filled with Hope.
  • SERVE so that those around me experience the Hope of Christ.
  • Pray that my life reflects the Hope of Jesus.

Sermons Slides: Hope

Listen here: 


Our theme verse is Isaiah 9:2 "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” 

  Please remember those that are home bound in prayer:

  • Phyllis Hull
  • Stan Wannop
  • Peg Wyckoff
