300 East Main Street

Newark, DE 19711


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]
Exploring Membership: If you're thinking about joining the New Ark or you'd just like information about the United Church of Christ and what we stand for, there will be two gatherings to explore what it means to be a member. We will meet on two Sundays: Oct. 9 at 12pm and Oct. 16 at 11am. During Sunday worship on Oct. 23 new members will be received in covenant with the New Ark United Church of Christ.
Second Sunday Studies - Prophetic Voices: Adults will meet once a month for an extended period of time, 11am to 12:30pm followed by a potluck lunch on the second Sunday of each month. These Second Sunday Studies for fall 2016 will focus on "Prophetic Voices," looking first at a Biblical prophet, Amos, facilitated by Rev. Bob Cassels on Oct. 9, and then looking at contemporary prophets via a book, Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler, facilitated by Rev. Cynthia Robinson on Nov. 13. We hope people will read the book of Amos (short!) prior to our discussion and Parable of the Sower during October before our November meeting (although NOT a requirement) and be eager to discuss how both shed light on how the New Ark can be a prophetic voice in our communities.
