The Minimum Standards have been established by the Newark First United Methodist Church for all ministries. They are mandatory. They are not inspirational, but set minimum standards to protect children, youth, and vulnerable adults from abuse and exploitation. Without exception, these standards apply to all local churches/charges, district and annual conference ministries, and those who serve within. Click here for more information.

Upper New York Conference of the UMC
Faith is more than what happens on Sunday mornings. It's a part of who we are, inside and out. At Newark First UMC, we believe in sharing the joy of the gospels daily, and living a life that embodies the spirit of Christ.
You are warmly invited to join our welcoming United Methodist faith community at any time. We believe in creating a faith community that is rooted in the gospels as we live in relationship to one another through Christ. Join us this Sunday and see how our community comes together to praise God with scripture, message, prayer and music!
