New Ark United Church of Christ

300 East Main Street

Newark, DE 19711


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]

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

NAUCC to host Dining for Women
Beginning in September, a new chapter of Dining for Women will meet on the fourth Sunday of each month. We "dine in" together, each bringing a dish to share, and send our "dining out" dollars to international programs for women and children living in extreme poverty. The first gathering will be at 5:30pm on Sept. 28.
