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.

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 starting January 8th at 7 PM and learn even more about worship.

orship: Starting today January 5th we will focus on the Biblical elements of Worship. We will be in the Round. The four walls (verbs) around which we plan our worship service are:

What is this? A Round Tuit…so don’t procrastinate and plan to join us this year to worship.

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.

ednesday night Bible Study continues Wednesday January 8th. 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.

H
aving 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? Many in our church are suffering. All these things should come before a meeting, practice or gathering gets underway. It is all about a Relationship with Jesus and not Religion.

V
ital Worship: Some signs. People are welcomed and cared for. God’s story is always told. Jesus is experienced as present. 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.

W
orship is the Hebrew word Shachah. It means to prostrate one-self or to bow down. In the Old Testament, it is common term used for coming before God in worship to honor Him. The English word means to look at someone’s worth-ship. To worship God is to respect and honor Him for who He is. The first place the word worship is mentioned in ine Bible in Genesis 22. Read Genesis 22. If you desire to understand how a sinful person can come into the presence of the Holy God and to be in a relationship with God as never before, then you will be blessed in the coming weeks as you learn more about the pattern of worship that God has given to Moses.
