"That We No More May Die"
Hark! The Gospel in the Carol
This Sunday Pastor Bob will continue our Advent sermon series Hark!, based on "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” with a sermon about resurrection. Charles Wesley reminds us in verse three of his carol that Jesus was "born that we no more may die,born to raise us from the earth, born to give us second birth." As we celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus, we are reminded of Easter and the resurrection to come. This week’s devotions, posted at devotions.tlumc.org, will explore what it means to be resurrection people.
- Monday: Mark 16:1-8 - He is Alive
- Tuesday: John 20:24-29 - Do not doubt but believe
- Wednesday: John 11:17-27 - I am the resurrection (Lazarus Story)
- Thursday: 1 Corinthians 15:12-21 - First fruits
- Friday: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 - Our resurrection
- Saturday: John 6:35-40 - Raise them up

Pastor Bob Kaylor
Pastor Joe Iovino
NorthGate United Methodist Congregation held its first worship service on March 10, 1991, in an abandoned truck stop at Exit 158 and Baptist Road. The service was conducted by the Rev. Don Bloor, the organizing pastor. We were chartered as a United Methodist Fellowship on August 11, 1991.
Three years later, on March 10, 1994, we were forced to move, because the truck stop was sold to Brookhart's Building Centers. Two area churches offered to church-share with us. The offer to move to the Church at Woodmoor was accepted by the Fellowship, since they were willing to let us use their church building on Sunday afternoons. We met for worship and Sunday School from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. each Sunday. In time, the desire to move worship to the morning hour was instrumental in the congregation seeking another location for the church
