CONNECT WITH THE NEW ARK ON FACEBOOK
The New Ark UCC 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 see the weekly email announcements for links to the online surveys or contact the church office.

Cynthia Robinson on Sept. 30 at 6:30pm. This event will be an opportunity for fellowship with each other and with Rev. Shepherd If you are a Trustee, chair, committee member, or consider yourself a lay leader, please plan to attend.
