Connect in Worship
Worship is our opportunity to bless God in community, to give thanks, and to hear God's word for us today. In worship we seek to experience God's presence and offer ourselves to God in prayer and praise, living in hope in all that God is doing and will do in and through our people.
We have 2 services that help to meet the needs of the community; from those appreciate a come as you are feel, contemporary music, and relaxing yet worshipful atmosphere to those who experience the Spirit through more traditional liturgy, organ music and hymn singing in a more formal environment. Both services offer topical preaching utilizing sermon series' that connect the scripture in practical ways for daily living. Come and connect to God and neighbor as we worship together.
8:30 AM informal and fresh contemporary worship with praise band and singers
10:30 AM intimate traditional worship featuring dynamic choral and organ music following a traditional worship pattern
Both services offer an opportunity to encounter the Holy Spirit, receive a fresh word, and the challenge to grow in our faith.
Current Sermon Series Revival: Faith As Wesley Lived It April 19th-May 24th
John Wesley's message and his faith continue to speak to 21st century Christians--calling for a revival of our hearts and souls so that our world might be changed. How we put it in terms of our purpose here at Newkirk FUMC would be to say to come to know Christ's love, to share Christ's love, so that lives would be transformed, our own lives transformed and lives in the community would be transformed. Sometimes we go through the motions of faith, we look out in the world and wonder if we can make a difference, we get overwhelmed and begin to feel the burnout. John Wesley, who began the Methodist revival felt that way sometimes as well. We'll go on a 6 week journey through England, we'll see some videos and pictures that will take us through John Wesley's life, ministry, and teachings. We'll see some highlights and some of the struggles in Wesley's story. His story is our story, it defines who we are as United Methodists and in seeing ourselves in that story we will be challenged to rediscover our spiritual passion and experience a breathe of life in our discipleship, and in our awakening be energized to share new life with others.
