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]

NOVEMBER HAPPENINGS: The Social Concerns committee, on behalf of the congregation, will donate Thanksgiving baskets to five area families who would otherwise lack a nice holiday dinner.

Everyone is invited to an Interfaith Thanksgiving service starting at 7:30pm on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at First Presbyterian Church, 292 West Main Street, Newark.

"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

STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY: How have you been blessed? Do you have good health (at least no debilitating illness)? Do you have a warm, dry, safe place to sleep at night? Are you part of a loving family? Did you have enough to eat this morning? Are you part of a caring faith community? Do you have adequate income (job or pension)? Can you take a warm shower whenever you want? Many people can't answer YES to these questions. This year's stewardship theme is 'Blessed to be a Blessing'. Take this moment to reflect upon how your own life has been blessed - what that means to you - and how and why it happened. Do your blessings enable you to be a blessing to others? How could your blessings enable you to be that blessing?
