Welcome

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.

February Program - Where Are You on Your Faith Journey?

The February Women’s Fellowship meeting will be held on Monday, February 3, 2020, at 1 pm in the church kitchen. The program is “Where Are You on Your Faith Journey?” led by Rev. Travis. Our Pastor will lead us in a time of Bible study and devotions.

This program is open to the entire congregation.

The View from the Pulpit...

Jesus answered Peter, “If I want him to live until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me!” – John 21:22

One thing I appreciate about the Bible is that it doesn’t portray its prophets and apostles as perfect people. The Bible shows us the whole person – warts and all – and in doing so allows those of us who read it all these years later to identify with our forbearers.

 

We are weak and broken people and so are those who came before us. We would consider the apostles to be fairly holy people, wouldn’t we? If the very ones who were in Jesus’s immediate presence – the ones whom he taught directly and who received their power and commission from His very hands – were prone to stumbling and moments of doubt, then we know we are in good company.  Such apostles and prophets are our allies and friends. We can’t possibly be any holier than they were, so we can at the very least accept the fact that we, like them, are flawed creatures. But even though we are flawed, we are made whole through God’s grace in Jesus Christ.
