WORSHIP IN THE PARK
Treadwell Park - Philo Curtis Road - Sandy Hook
ONE SERVICE - 10 A.M.

Come dressed in your “play clothes and you may want to bring a comfy chair. After worship we will fire up the grills and spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying food, fun & more! Join us for a re-match of YOUTH vs ADULTS Basketball! Charcoal, paper products and silverware will be provided. Simply bring your main dish and drinks as well as a side dish and/or dessert to share.
JOIN US FOR THIS FUN DAY!!
The bears and angels and flowers have been transformed into a compost destined for the memorial that will be built for the students and teachers …. so what do we do before this tragedy fades from the national psyche until the next tragedy?
Consider at least two things:
- First, that you, personally and institutionally, address the larger cause of social justice that includes access to mental health resources, diminishing gun violence and lowering the tolerance of violence in our society.
- Second, our prayer in the New Year is that God will rekindle our United Methodist membership vows for prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.
- We ask that you find some way to honor a child of your congregation or community within those vows.
- Then let us know what you’ve done.
We have established a page on our website at www.numc.us/she/ for you to let us know what you did and that we can share it with the world.
“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can,
At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”
~ John Wesley ~
Wesley Covenant Prayer
I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,
exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
