Welcome to our Sunday Worship Service for March 7, 2021. We will be continuing on in the Lenten worship series entitled, Purple Theory. Today we will be discovering the importance of fasting as a spiritual practice, which makes us draw closer closer to God by sacrificing things that we enjoy. People have been fasting for thousands of years. Let us understand the reason why!
Please support us by giving online: https://tithe.ly/give?c=1377216 or https://paypal.me/newtonumc Your support is vital, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. You can also write and mail a check to First UMC of Newton, 111 Ryerson Ave., Newton, NJ 07860. If you are from another church that is not able to host online worship, we would strongly encourage you give to YOUR church and support them. They no doubt need that support as much as we do. God bless you all for your generosity.
