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.

AN EVENING AT THE TABLE: Join the congregation of the New Ark United Church of Christ on Sunday, March 8 for evening supper worship. "An Evening at the Table" will begin at 5pm when we will share a meal prepared by our youth, worship at the table with songs, prayers, readings, discussions, offering, and Communion and Benediction. Our Youth Group will be ending their 24 hour-plus fast on that day, too, all part of gaining experience in the daily struggle of one in eight people in the world who lack adequate nourishment. All ages are welcome at the table and will be included in all aspects of our worship. Invite your friends. Join in the fast. Add your good vibes and prayers that this service will be a night to remember. For more information, contact the church office at 302.737.4711. Childcare will be provided throughout the evening.
