New Gosh is a combination of human beings who live & work, who love & suffer, who worry & hope. No two people are alike. The one thing we hold in common is our faith in Jesus Christ.
New Goshenhoppen lives as a firm foundation for the Christian faith and shall continue to serve God by sharing the light, faith, and love of Jesus Christ with all people guided by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Wednesday Lenten Services
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. The date of this special day this year is February 17th. In contrast to recent practice however, the location of the service schedule will reflect a plan similar to our Sunday morning services, with one service set to take place online in the evening.

News of this has been very upsetting, but in the midst of it all I harken to the words of Harry Emerson Fosdick’s hymn:
