Update Regarding New Market UMC Ministry

 

May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ center you and encourage you this day.  

At the request of our governor and bishop, we have determined that we will be suspending all in-person worship, small groups, meetings, preschool programming, and gatherings of our New Market and Mt. Carmel and Fairview congregations beginning Sunday, March 15th and extending through April 26th.  While it grieves us not to be physically present with you, we own this action as our responsibility to help minimize the impact of COVID-19.  We will be working primarily from home and we are always just a phone call away. 

If your ministry or team has a particular need to meet, please contact a pastor for guidance.

Today's Focus Prayer: Psalm 51

Worship Services Cancelled until April

Today's Focus Prayer: Psalm 51

1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.  3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. 4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. 6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. 7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;  wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. 9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. 10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

POSTPONED   

All are invited to join the adult Sunday school class at the schoolhouse as we begin a seven week Lenten Study, called On the Road Again – A Faith Journey by James W. Moore. 

“Each year as we move toward Easter, we make a road trip. We join Jesus on the road as he moves to and through the cross. It is interesting to note that some of Jesus’ most powerful and poignant experiences happened on the road. In a real sense, we could say that Jesus spent his whole life on the road. He was born on a road trip. He died on a road trip. And one of his most dramatic post-Resurrection appearances occurred on the road to Emmaus. In this Lenten study, we will explore the significance of Jesus’ experiences on the road, and we will take a closer look at some of the people he met along the way.”

The class will start at 9:30 a.m. starting, Postponed in the schoolhouse.

POSTPONED 

A small group of us experimented with participating in an Advent study at the schoolhouse this last advent season and we enjoyed it so much, we have decided to meet again for a Lenten study.  The decision has been made on the Lenten study, it is called Give Up Something Bad for Lent by James W. Moore.  The study will start on Pending.  We begin at 10:00 a.m. and have a light luncheon after. Between the study and fellowship the meeting usually lasts about 2 hours.  We are still discerning on which curriculum to study, but wanted to get the dates and times out to those who would be interested in an effort to have the study material ordered and ready to begin on the 4th.  There could me a slight fee for the books we purchase of $10 to $15, or they could be free depending on the study, those details will be communicated in the next few weeks.   It is a very enjoyable mid-week get together and we hope you will join us.  A sign-up sheet will be posted in the sanctuary or if you forget to sign-up, feel free to contact Patty Robinson and she will note your request to attend.

The Church Council has decided that in order for the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. congregations to get to know each other better that twice a year we will hold a unity service at 10:00 a.m.

On Mother’s Day, May 10th the men of the church will provide breakfast at the Schoolhouse starting at 8:30 a.m. The services on this Sunday will be combined so that we can all worship together at 10:00 a.m.  There will be no Sunday School; childcare will be provided.  The other unity service will be announced at a future date. We encourage everyone to attend this breakfast and service so we can better get to know each other and to have the body of New Market UMC in combined worship.  If you are interested in volunteering to provide the breakfast, please contact Pastor Scott.
