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]
White Privilege, Let's Talk: Our Second Sunday Studies continues with session two, "Whiteness as the Norm" on Feb. 12 starting at 11am. We will probe the binaries of white and black and how whiteness became the norm. You may read essays on the topic by five theologians on SLACK but it is not a requirement for participation. We have several video clips and can share some of our thoughts on the essays to stimulate dialogue. Join us for this important discussion.

Delaware Interfaith March and Rally to Support Refugees: A march and rally to support refugees will be held on Sunday, Feb. 12 from 2-5pm. We will begin at the NAUCC and march up Main Street to the University of Delaware Green. This is a gathering in support of refugees. Our Interfaith Community stands in solidarity to make our faith voices heard peacefully in support of the families who have come here and those who hope to come here. Refugees are welcome here. This event is a sister action of the HIAS Jewish Rally for Refugees - NYC. Find out more at the Facebook event page.

Lectionary Divinia: On Feb. 26 we will continue our version of a Biblical study called Lecto Divina, using the following week's lectionary (March 5). Rather than a theological analysis of the passage, the participant reads and re-reads the passage in order to enter the meaning of the passage as a personal and spiritual experience.
