DID YOU KNOW FOR January 26th 2014.

Welcome to the NEW Moyock UMC. We are so glad you decided to join us in our new ROUND worship space at our 1030 am service. We’ve been expecting you!
We truly hope that you will experience the Fresh Wind and Fresh Fire that has ignited this congregation since we became The New MUMC in August of 2011.

Our God is an awesome God and we are being obedient to Him. Ask a church member to tell you the rest of the story. And yes, there is a wonderful amazing story of how God is working in our lives and the life of the church.

We are In ministry together and we need you to help us Serve in His name right here in our Community So That…… Pastor Bill Masciangelo 252 455 7117 cell.

Worship services at the New MUMC are faithful to scripture, historically conscious, relevant to God, Christ-centered, and engaging for worshipers in the 21st century. Come and see…

Can you identify these elements in today’s worship service? We suggest that you keep a copy of each weekly issue of Did You Know on file and use them to review and grasp what God truly wants us to do when He calls us here to Worship. Another option? Come to Bible Study on Wednesday night at 7 PM and learn even more about worship. A simple dinner is now being served each Wednesday night from 6 to 6:45 pm. Join us..then stay.

Worship: Starting last week began to focus on the Biblical elements of Worship. We are in the Round. The four foundation walls (verbs) around which we plan our worship service are:

Prayer Chain: If you would like to be a prayer warrior or if you have a prayer request, Kathy Henderson is coordinating this ministry for us. You can reach Kathy on her cell phone at 757-705-5770 or email her at khenderson6741@gmail.com.

Wednesday night Bible Study started Wednesday January 8th at 7 PM. Worship: Why and how God wants us to worship. Worship: Then and Now. Please join this great group of disciples desiring to learn more about Jesus. We have also started serving a Simple meal from 6 PM till 6:45 prior to class. Join us for dinner and study7 pm.

Having a meeting, practice or gathering at church? Please consider these ideas: Did you think to pray to open and close? Did you lead a short devotional from the Upper Room monthly devotional sharing the Word of God? Were you sensitive to new folks or old friends and their need for Spiritual Healing? All these things should come before a meeting, practice or gathering gets underway. We are part of a movement!

Vital Worship: Some signs. People are welcomed and cared for. God’s story is always told. Jesus is experienced as present and center. People are active in singing, praying and responding. There is passion not only from the Pastor but from the Congregation. Things like pictures, videos, candles, decorations are used to point to the presence of God. Worship space is arranged so people can be together and see one another. Worship matters. There is energy. Worship reveals the planning, gifts and participation of the people. We are giving God our honor and glory. We want what we do to be pleasing to Him… It is not about us…but To God!

Worship can take place anywhere. Our sanctuary on Sunday is where worship takes place for us. How does space reflect how we worship? We need to hear the Word of God. We need to be able to move and to participate and to touch and share. We need intimate concentric space when God is with us. We need space to move and respond, pray, baptize, share His table, bless, pass the peace, offer ourselves and so much more. A place for the body of Christ to gather, hear, respond and then go. Our new space to worship seeks to give a sense of hospitality and intimacy of sharing in the worship experience.
Worship Bible Study Review: Lesson #2 Moses hears from God how to build the tabernacle. Key words: Tent meeting, Dwell among, fellowship, communicate. How do sinful people approach a Holy God? Exodus 25: 8-9, Exodus 40: 17-33 and Exodus 40: 24-28. Then look at John 1 vs 1-2 and 14. Then 1 Corinthians 3: 11. Worship space designed by God. How to worship came from God. God is looking for us to come to Him humble, with praise and giving Him glory Why? For what He has done for us in his death and resurrection. Come and see how they are all connected: the Old and the New the Then and Now.
