New Goshenhoppen UCC, East Greenville: July 31, 2016

New GoshenhoppenNew Goshenhoppen United Church of Christ is one of the oldest congregations in the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference.   We will be celebrating our 290th anniversary in 2017. We may be old but we are very young at heart.

Our church activities include the normal: Sunday School; Bible School; and two Sunday morning services of worship. During the summer months our 10:30 a.m. service is held outdoors in our own park facility. We also run a Day Camp for children as well as overnight mission/ camping for teens on our 100 acres of property.

Devotional opportunities include: Bible Studies; Fireside Chats; special activities on Epiphany, All Saints, and Ascension Days; and retreats.

The New Goshenhoppen Nursery School has been helping little ones grow for over 25 years.

Our seven choirs take turns offering their talents to praise God on Sunday mornings.

Rejoicing Spirits, a special worship experience for persons with special needs, is offered once every month.

We reach out into the community by participating in providing hot meals to the needy, holding support groups for those families struggling with addiction issues, and for those coping with grief.

We invite residents of various nursing homes and our congregation’s elderly to share in banquet fun and provide a free holiday feast to anyone on Christmas Day.

Our facility has become the site for the PSEC Spiritual Life Committee’s “Quiet Days”. Our meditation wall and natural walking trail provide visitors a space for relaxation and meditating.

We have big plans for celebrating our anniversary along with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by producing historical plays. We are always working at being more open and welcoming.

Most of all, we are thankful to Jesus Christ our Lord for all of our blessings and we hope to continue servicing him as disciples and ministering on in faith.
