Build Community By
Serving Your Community

One of the things that we are called to do as individual believers and as part of Newark United Methodist Church is to serve others, locally, and globally. We are also called to work towards social justice and challenge injustice in its various forms in our world.

Local Ministries

Newark United Methodist Church has a long history of impacting our local community through service. We are a compassionate congregation, serving others in response to the need we see around us. Programs we support include:

“If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you.”

John 13:14-15 (NASB)

Global Ministries

The mission reach of Newark United Methodist Church is global. We support the connectional agencies of The United Methodist Church through local church-based projects, funding, and missionary work, including:

Social Justice

In his Letter from Birmingham Jail on April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” As a faith community, we can help change the systems that either exacerbate or perpetuate the needs associated with the compassion we give by taking action.

Among the Issues We Address Are:


  • Environmental stewardship
  • Death penalty abolition in Delaware
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer inclusion
  • Promoting fair and affordable housing
  • Working for peace in Palestine-Israel
  • Ending racial/cultural discrimination
  • Promoting morally responsible consumerism
