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]
Summer pulpit supply: On the three Sundays that Rev. Robinson will be vacationing this summer, the pulpit will be filled by Rev. Bob Cassels (July 3), Rev. Deb Ebling (July 10), and Rev. Susan Scott (July 17). Come hear a new voice as we worship together.
Mark your calendar: The New Ark will hold a church-wide workshop on Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 1. "Taking Our Spiritual Temperature: A Wellness Check" facilitated by Rev. Glenna Shepherd, is a strategic workshop that will prepare the NAUCC to move into a future that is focused, missional, and connects with the community. One of the tools used to gather information for the workshop is a series of surveys about various aspects of the church's programming and identity. Please take a few minutes to complete the first survey:
Sign up for interviews for our church-wide fall workshop: There are 17 in-person interview slots available on Friday, Sept. 30, as well as 12 phone/Skype/Google hangout interview slots available on the evenings of Sept. 12 and 13, and Sept. 19 and 20. Please check your calendars and sign up quickly to have your opportunity to speak with our church consultant, Rev. Glenna Shepherd.

Strengthening our Foundation
To help defray the cost of necessary foundation repairs in Wells Hall, the Finance Committee has created a "wall of envelopes." Marked with varying amounts, donations can be placed inside and given during the weekly offering. The "wall" will be in place in our fellowship hall through the month of July.
