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.

Jesus' Parables: The Great Banquet

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Our Scripture focus was on Luke 14:15-24.

We took a look at Jesus' Parables: The Great Banquet

Listen here: 


Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Psalm 36, Luke 14 and Matthew 22.
  • CONNECT my life to God’s Great Banquet.
  • DISCOVER life as one who accepted Christ’s invitation.
  • SERVE so that the “least of these” can attend God’s Great Banquet.
  • Pray my life reflects Jesus’ love.
