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.

Sermon: Pass It On

Our Scripture focus was Matthew 13:33-35

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Week 42 of Coast to Coast readings.
  • CONNECT with Boun Thorne’s story.
  • DISCOVER Jesus’ teaching for you through this parable. 
  • SERVE as a channel of God’s love.
  • Pray: God, show me how I can share your love with someone this week.

“Make me a channel of your peace, Where there is hatred let me bring your love,
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord, And where there's doubt, true faith in you.” 

-Anonymous text usually called the Prayer of Saint Francis

 


Our theme verse is 

But he answered, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone,
    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Matthew 4:4 (NRSV)

 

  Please remember those that are home bound in prayer
