Two Opportunities to help with VBS

  • First, this week and next, at 6:00 pm at Aldersgate UMC , there is a group of people gathering to put together decorations for VBS.  Anybody with crafty skills would be more than welcome to stop in and help.
  • Second, on Saturday June 23rd,  one more volunteer to help promote VBS at the  Walltown. Reunion event. Time slots available are either from 10-12 or from 12-2.   The volunteer will help run a game and hand out invitations to VBS at the Walltown Community Center.

Contact the LaNella at the church office (919-688-4578) or via email (secretary@newcreationumcdurham.org) to volunteer.

New Creation is blessed with 5 high school graduates this year..  Teemer Barry, Christopher Cole, Ben Colon-Emeric, Moise Kesse and Jenifer Lopez.  Congratulations to our graduates and their families.  New Creation will honor our graduates on Sunday, June 24th.



This week our article focuses on the "The Four-Fold Pattern of Worship."

"How should you structure your worship services? In many mainline churches that process involves putting together an order of worship that consists of a sequence of prayers, songs, sermon, and sacrament. Congregations that use contemporary music talk more about creating a sense of flow, with one song naturally transitioning to another in a nearby key and with a similar tempo, and then concluding the service with the pastor's message."

It is time for us to live into our Mission statement.  We are in the middle of a community in need of Jesus’ love and attention.  We are to be his disciples and deliver the good news to all. For this reason, we would like to invite you to participate in our 4th of July Celebration; in this event we would like to invite families from our community. We will have activities for youth, kids and adults, Games, Music and good food. 

Celebrating freedom in this country is something that we will like to do together with our Hispanic/Latino brothers and sisters. We encourage you to take a flyer and invite them to this event. Flyers will be available this Sunday.

Please contact our secretary to RSVP and inform her if you will invite someone else.
