CLIMATE AND COMMUNITY: Mission work and community involvement are values important to the New Ark. Sunday, Sept. 21 brings an opportunity for our Earthwise Congregation to participate in the People's Climate March in New York City. A Climate & Coffee Kickoff will be held on Thursday, Sept. 4 at Brew HaHa! on Main Street in Newark. Also on Sept. 21, we will have a table set up on the grounds of the University of Delaware for Newark Community Day. Please plan to help at our table to represent our church to the local community.

"We want to be a good church and a real church, a church where the truth gets told and to which we can bring our whole selves. A church where when we worship together we leave it all on the field. A church where we can laugh all of our laughter and cry all of our tears and ask the hardest questions and feel that the Holy Spirit shows up with great regularity."
-- Rev. Molly Phinney Baskette
FAIR TRADE COFFEE/TEA/CHOCOLATE:
The New Ark joined the UCC Coffee Project many years ago, serving free trade coffee and tea during our conversation time between the service and CE as well as selling products periodically. Since we began our sale of fair trade commodities, the idea has become "mainstream!" Fair trade items are readily available in markets and online. Therefore, we will cease our sale
of the Equal Exchange coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and candies although we will continue to purchase the coffee and tea for congregational gatherings. We highly encourage all our congregants to look for the fair trade symbol
as they purchase for their own households. For more information visit http://www.ucc.org/justice/coffee-project/
