Service @10:30 AM
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.

Persons are encouraged to mail their contributions to the church office rather than bringing them in, and envelopes should be sealed with an adhesive or water rather than saliva. You may also donate online via the website home page or by selecting New Goshenhoppen on the GivePlus app, which also allows for recurring payments to be set up.
The pastors will continue to be available, predominantly through phone calls, emails, and video chats.
I recognize it may seem trite to say, "Keep calm." but the reality is, doing so is the best policy. To calm any anxieties or fears, pray. Meditate on the Scriptures. Call friends and communicate the "old fashioned" way by telephone. Reach out to the pastors by phone or email. Know that God is still on the throne, and that for most people, the coronavirus will not be life-threatening.
Thank you for your flexibility and understanding with the many changes happening quickly. We know and trust that God is still at work in the midst of all this chaos to bring about good.
One Last View from the Pulpit...
Dear New Goshenhoppen Family:
Anyone who spends much time around me knows that I am rarely at a loss for words. I always have something to say, even when people wish I didn’t. So it is remarkable indeed that I am having great difficulty knowing what words to choose for my final Steeple column. Let me start by saying “thank you.” Thank you for your wonderful hospitality ever since I arrived in October 2018 – and even before, when I was going through the interview and candidating process. I have found the people of New Goshenhoppen not only to be warm and generous, but also mature in the faith – people committed to truth and kindness. Every congregation has some level of gossip and discord, but I can honestly say that the people of New Goshenhoppen largely refrain from such corrosive habits. It’s a great credit to you, and any pastor should be grateful to God for the opportunity to serve as your shepherd (I am)...
