Sundays @ 9:30am
The New Ark United Church of Christ is an inclusive and friendly congregation dedicated to being open to persons of every age, race, sexual orientation, ability and religious background. We are a faith community that values diversity, respects freedom of thought and celebrates the gifts that each person brings to the table. We value individual growth in our faith journeys, offering worship and Christian education to all ages.
We are dedicated to God's call to "do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God," reaching out with compassion and service to those suffering injustice or who are in need in our community and throughout the world. We strive to live peacefully, love fully, and act as faithful stewards of the physical and spiritual universe. [LEARN MORE]

"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 UCC Coffee Project is a way for this congregation to join hands with communities in the developing world. As Christians we can address a consumer dilemma by buying coffee and other commodities that are fairly traded. Through the project, small farmers and their families gain more control over their lives, earn a fairer share of income, have access to credit and technical support, and gain a trading partner they can trust, a fair trade organization called Equal Exchange. And, through the project, we can learn about consumption habits that support small scale farmers and workers throughout the world and encourage careful stewardship of God's creation.
