The New Milford United Methodist Church invites you to become involved in the life of our active church. We hope our website gives you a better understanding of who we are as a church family, and the many opportunities there are to get involved with our community of faith.
Worship and Fellowship
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” – Psalm 100:1-2
Worship is at the center of our church life –– it’s the heartbeat of our fellowship and brings us together for renewal and growth as a community of faith.
Together we celebrate life events: birth and baptism, confirmation, marriage as well as death and burial. We celebrate our faith and praise God in both traditional and creative ways always turning to the scriptures to help us understand the personal and social concerns of the day. You can help lead worship by joining the Bell Choir, Chancel Choir, or the Open Door Tech Team.
We have many special events during the year, one highlight is our Spaghetti Supper which is held on the second Saturday each month September through June.
Missions and Outreach
“Love, not in words or speech, but in truth and action” – 1 John 3:18
Worship calls us together as the community of Christ, and sends us out into the world as God’s servants.Our church serves as a conduit where we may put action to the words of our faith.We support missions through our donations and our labors.
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” – Philippians 3:12
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to grow in the knowledge of Christ. Our church takes the responsibility of education very seriously. We offer Christian Education from pre-K through adult, on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. There are short and long term bible study opportunities.
United Methodist Youth Fellowship [UMYF] is a group for seventh through twelfth graders, which meets on Sunday afternoons for fellowship and Christian Formation. There are also regularly scheduled special events.
Sharing the scriptures, communicating our Methodist tradition and values to both our youth and adults is the disciplined study our founder John Wesley encouraged.
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” – 1 Peter 4:8
As the family of Christ, we love and care for one another. During illness, family distress, or personal turmoil we depend upon the care and support of our pastor and our church members through prayer as well as our Membership Care Committee.
