Dear Church family,

Jimmie and I wish to express our appreciation for the honor that was bestowed upon us this past Pastor Appreciation Sunday.  We are blessed immensely to have the opportunity to serve New Creation. We are very fortunate to be able to say that this has been one of our appointments that will be long remembered.  Thank you for the many kind expressions that were shown thru gifts, verbal expressions and your presence. May Christ continue to guide us as find our way forward.Blessings for the Journey

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Please consider contributing an extra $500 above your current tithes and offerings for apportionments by January 5, 2018.

We have almost finished the race.  We have paid $15,218.30 towards our apportionments.  This includes your gifts and the $2,448.75 raised as a result of your hard work during our Fall Festival. We thank you for your generosity. This leaves New Creation UMC with a balance of $16,979.70

The world celebrates "Giving Tuesday" on November 28.  Many gifts are exchanged on December 25.  We would like to ask each of you to give an additional $500 above your current tithes and offerings towards apportionments by January 5, 2018.  We understand that some of us will be able to contribute more than others.  Please prayerfully consider this request.

Thanksgiving Feast Shopping List


As it is our tradition, we will give away Thanksgiving turkeys and the trimmings to our neighbors and friends.  Thanks to your gifts to the Good Samaritan Fund, the church will purchase the turkeys.  We need you to purchase the trimmings.  Please purchase the items listed below, place them in the shopping bag, and deliver to New Creation UMC before Sunday, November 19th.  We'll add a turkey so that a needy family can enjoy a Thanksgiving feast!

  • 1 box instant mashed potatoes
  • 1 large can yams
  • 2 cans corn
  • 1 large or two small jars or cans of turkey gravy
  • 1 box of stuffing
  • 1 can of cranberry sauce
  • Appropriate holiday cookies and candies for dessert! 

For green bean casserole:

  • · 1 large can green beans
  • · 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • · 1 can French fried onion rings

Once you’ve place all of the above items in the bag, feel free to add any other special foods/treats of your choice that will make it more like your own Thanksgiving dinner.
I tell you this: whenever you saw a brother or sister hungry or cold, whatever you did to the least of these, so you did to Me.  Matthew 25:40



Our apportionments may have gotten a little more complicated since John Wesley's time, but the impetus remains the same: making mission and ministry possible.
