Dear neighbors, 

I hope this message finds you safe and well. Right now, we are all experiencing an unprecedented crisis with the spread of COVID-19; and each of us are facing different challenges in our homes and lives. But we are reaching out today to let you know that you need not face them alone. New Market is a close-knit community, full of caring people ready and waiting to help in any way we can. To that end, we have assembled a team of volunteers to offer resources to help others navigate this pandemic in multiple ways:

1) Grocery pick-up and delivery; 

2) Prepared meal delivery;

3) Medication pick-up and delivery;

4) Weekly phone or FaceTime check-ins.

If you, or someone you know are in need of assistance—particularly seniors, those who are immunocompromised, or those living alone—or if you are interested in volunteering with us, please contact our coordinator Ashly Wright at wright.ashlytaylor@gmail.com or call 415-810-2744. As we are just beginning to embark on this ministry, we are working with limited resources. 

If you would like to contribute to the cause, you can donate to us on our Give Online Page, and include the line item “New Market Community Care.” 

We are also cooperating with the New Market Rotary Club and the New Market Lions Club to meet the needs of our community.   

The Grace Episcopal church (5740 Green Valley Rd.) has also set up food donation bins and a food distribution pantry that is available 24/7. The bins and pantry are located under the eave on the left hand of the sanctuary doors. Undistributed food will be donated to another local pantry.

And if you or someone you know are experiencing anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts, please don’t hesitate to call the Maryland crisis hotline at 1-800-422-0009. Supportive listening and crisis intervention for children in grade 5 and below is also available at 301-694-8255. 

You are not alone. Thank you for reading, and be well!

Daily Devotions Beginning May 18

Monday 5/18- Exodus 20: 1-21

How does the Ten Commandments make u

Daily Devotions Beginning May 25

Monday 5/25- Exodus 40: 1-16

In this description of the tabernacle it is designed to move along with the people and was to be set up again at each stop. How has this time taught you to take the tabernacle (sanctuary) with you wherever you go? How can you continue to do this even after we are able to gather together in the house of the Lord?

Tuesday 5/26- Exodus 40: 17-33

How can you mentally wash your feet and hands as you prepare to approach the Lord in worship? Is there a place in your home that you can consecrate as a place of prayer? Set a place apart in your home that you can dedicate to meet the Lord everyday.

Wednesday 5/27- Acts 1: 1-11

Why was it important that Jesus departs from his disciples and sends the Holy Spirit? How have you experienced this Holy Spirit in your life?

Thursday 5/28- Acts 2: 1-13

How is this story the reversal of the tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9)? How does the Holy Spirit join believers instead of separating them?

Friday 5/29- Acts 2: 14-28

What power enabled Peter (a mere fisherman), to proclaim the hope of the Gospel message so eloquently? How can you invite the power of the Holy Spirit to enable your tongue to proclaim the Gospel message with love and power?

Saturday 5/30- Acts 2: 29-41

The scripture tells us that the people heard the message and were cut to the heart. Was it Peter’s words or the power of the Holy Spirit in the words, or both? How can you remember your baptism today? Place some water on your forehead in the shape of a cross and remember the great and mighty acts of the love and grace you have received by God’s Holy Spirit.
