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

The Sent

Sunday, April 22, 2018

Our Scripture focus was on Colossians 1:1-14.

We took a look at Faith Sharing: The Sent

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Psalm 145, 1 John 4 and Colossians 1.
  • CONNECT with those that have been Sent in the name of Jesus.
  • DISCOVER partnering with those who have been Sent.
  • SERVE as one who has been Sent by Christ.
  • Pray that I allow God to send me where He wills.

Sermon Slides: Faith Sharing: The Sent


Our theme verse is Psalm 145:4-5
"One generation commends Your works to another; they tell of Your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty and I will meditate on Your wonderful works."
  Please remember those that are home bound in prayer:

  • Bob Koontz
