Welcome to New Creation!

In the name of Jesus, welcome to our church family’s website. Grace and peace to you.  We’re a growing church community in Hagerstown and we’re part of something amazing God is doing in the tri-state area. We’re part of a movement of solid, Gospel-preaching, Christ-exalting churches practicing a new-yet-old way to be Christian. Have a look around  – I think you’ll find New Creation to be a very welcoming group of people and a very unique church community with a great sense of mission in and to the Hagerstown community. We look forward to meeting you soon (in fact, why not this Sunday?)!

Exalt the triune God. Disciple together. Love our neighbor with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

— The Rev. Justin Clemente, Parish Pastor

Seek God for the City (40 Days of Prayer)

As New Creation continues to take its place at the center of our city, we come back to an emphasis on the need for repentance and prayer. Both for ourselves, and the community the Lord has called us to serve in the Gospel. We’ll be using a WayMakers.org resource called “Seek God for the City.” You can get your free copy at New Creation this Sunday.

Biblical Stations of the Cross (6:30 pm, March 25th)

Join us for the Biblical Stations of the Cross.
The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion for many centuries because they enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus.
They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to Calvary. They would pause for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.
– Common Worship: Times and Seasons
This “Scriptural Stations” service is presented here as an alternative to the traditional stations and as a way of reflecting more deeply on the Scriptural accounts of Christ’s passion.

Good Friday 2020 (April 10, 6:30 PM)

The Good Friday liturgy is the second part of the Triduum (the sacred three days). This most solemn of all days is appropriately marked by fasting, abstinence, and penitence, leading us to focus on Jesus and the meaning of his cross. Some churches do not use musical instruments or bells on this day. The church is often darkened. The bare, stark appearance of the church serves as a reminder of the solemnity and the sorrow of the day. The Lord of Life was rejected, mocked, scourged, and then put to death on the cross. The faithful are reminded of the role which their own sin played in this suffering and agony, as Christ took all sin upon himself, in obedience to his Father’s will. By the cross we are redeemed, set free from bondage to sin and death. The cross is a sign of God’s never-ending love for us. It is a sign of life, in the midst of death.
