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]

"Dreams happen when your heart is open, and cannot happen when your mind is closed. Dreams are about the heart's calling to find itself."
                                                        - Dan Gottlieb, The Wisdom We're Born With

We celebrate the gifts of prophets in our time.
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.
