This Sunday: Gathering in the Lord’s Name

Sermon: 31 January

This Sunday we’re going to think about people gathering together. What different reasons do we gather together for? What changes when we gather together? How can we gather together in the Lord’s name?

This Sunday: You Must Be Born Again

Is it possible to really change? At the beginning of the year, it’s a question we may find ourselves asking. The startling answer from the Lord’s Word: both yes and no. According to the Word, we have two “selves” or “wills” at the same time: a fleshly one, and a spiritual one. The fleshly will…

This Sunday: Seeing Patterns

This Sunday we will be hearing a sermon by Eric Carswell called “Seeing Patterns.” It takes a funny and not very well-known story from the Old Testament and uses it to explore how we can come to see negative patterns in our lives, even when we don’t particularly want to.

This Sunday:The Son of God

Joseph was told that the Child in Mary’s womb had been “conceived of the Holy Spirit”; Mary was told that the Child would be called “the Son of God.” He would also be “Immanuel,” that is, “God with us.” How could He be both the Son of God and God Himself? It can seem like…

This Sunday: Carol Sing

Bring a picnic and your family and get in the Christmas spirit by singing Christmas songs with the New Church Westville band. There will be a short, family-friendly worship service in the church and then we’ll move into the hall to sing and eat.

This Sunday: Betrothal

This Sunday: Holding On

This Sunday: Letting Go

Some of the most important decisions we make in life are about what we choose to let go of and what we hold onto with all of our might. Holding on can be a good thing or a bad thing, likewise letting go. This Sunday we’re going to explore what the Word teaches about what to let…

This Sunday: What does money mean to the Lord and about the Lord?

Over the last two weeks we’ve talked about what money can mean to and about us as individuals, and what money can mean to and about other people. This week we conclude this series by talking about what money means to and about the Lord. Does the Lord give people money as a sign of…
