New Gosh Moments

Do you love your church? Has New Gosh had an important impact on your faith and/or life? Would you be willing to tell others? Please let Pastor Bonnie or Pastor Cydney know if you’d be willing to share your story during worship one Sunday. Your "testimony" will enrich our worship, help us get to know each other better, and broaden all of our understandings of how God is making a difference in people’s lives at New Goshenhoppen UCC.

 

"Moments" should be personal and brief (2-3 minutes max), and should answer any or all of the following:

 

             how New Goshenhoppen UCC has shaped your life and faith,

             why New Goshenhoppen is important to you, or

             why you support New Gosh with your time, talent, and/or money.

 

Thanks for giving prayerful consideration to sharing your story!

Rejoicing Spirits Inclusive Worship

Rejoicing Spirits reaches out to enrich the spiritual lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, along with their families, friends, and other supportive community members through a meaningful inclusive worship that shares Gods’ word and message of love.

 

Rejoicing Spirits worship:

        • Begins with arts and crafts based on the message for the day

        • Is built on lively music and joyous singing along with brief, meaningful messages

        • Features hand-held instruments for participation in and open, expressive environment

        •  Is shush-free – people can be themselves without being told to "be quiet"

        • Offers alternative worship and fellowship opportunities for people who already belong to a faith community

        • Is inclusive of all ages, faith, and abilities

 

Concludes with social time .

 

We are grateful that through New Goshenhoppen Meadows Project, we are able to offer this special worship service, which models spiritual inclusion as 1 Corinthians 12:25 says, "So that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other."

 

If you would like to know more about Rejoicing Spirits please contact Sandy George or Jamie Moyer.

 

The next services are on the following Sunday's at 4 pm:

       

        October 22   

        November 26

 

Looking forward to rejoicing the Lord every 4th Sunday of the month at 4 pm in the Roberts' Room. Or saying it in another way, see you on the "fourth at four."

 

New Meeting Time for Quilt Knotting

The "Quilt Knotting" group is a group that meets once a month in the Recreation Room to knot quilts. They also make crib size quilts that are blessed and given to babies that are baptized. The group meets at 9:00 am on the second Monday of each month unless the Monday falls on a holiday. In that case, the group meets the next day.

 

No experience is necessary. During the monthly meeting, they simply gather to knot the quilts and enjoy the fellowship of other women. Come and join the group at 9:00 am.
