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]
