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]
LENTEN/EASTER EVENTS: A Lenten Book Study will be held on Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm on March 8, 15, 22, 29, April 5 and 12. We will be reading God Unbound: Wisdom from the Galatians for the Anxious Church by Elaine Heath. She writes, "The church belongs to God. The church is God's idea, not ours," that it is time for us to see and listen to the unbound God and where God is leading the church next. A thin volume full of the Spirit. Make this part of your Lenten devotion.
