The Missions Team is committed to connecting the congregation of Newark First UMC to mission opportunities in our community, nation, and world. This dedicated group strives to increase awareness of various missions, to connect those seeking a way to give back to organizations needing support, and to increase congregational support of missions through their time, talents, and offerings. Open Door Mission Meals brings together community and congregation to hear qualified speakers share mission experiences. The team provides ongoing mission opportunities throughout the year. Special mission opportunities are supported by this team when church or community voices a need. Here is the place to find encouragement and support for those who wish to start a new mission..
Highlights for the upcoming year include:
Ongoing local missions include Newark food closet, Vacation Bible School (VBS), hospice programs, emergency response teams, and the free lunch program.
