If you’re here you have figured out that the website looks different. Our old site became unusable. So I am in the process of learning a brand new program and building what will hopefully be a wonderful new site. Please be patient with me as I learn to navigate the program. As I’m not sure what I am doing, prayers are appreciated. As with any new program, there is a learning curve, no matter how simple people say it is. As soon as I get an element in place or something figured out I will update the site, so check back to see how we are doing. If you have comments or suggestions, you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to this website for the Newport United Church of Christ! It has been 112 years since the founding of Hope Congregational Church, which later merged with Memorial Methodist Church to form the Newport United Church of Christ.
Throughout our history, a number of “givens” have characterized the life and work of our church. First, that we are a people who seek, not just to give lip service to our faith in Jesus, but instead, to actively follow in the footsteps of Jesus, as disciples, wherever we go in life. Second, that as followers of Jesus, we seek to welcome other fellow pilgrims along the way, wherever they find themselves on life’s pathway. And finally, that we consider it our primary mission to share the love of God in Jesus for everyone, as we open our facilities to the community, as we reach out to work with other Christians in the community, and as we move beyond our doors to walk with those in physical and spiritual need, both locally and on the larger world.
If Newport United Church of Christ sounds like the kind of church of which you might like to be a part, please contact us for more information or join us for one of our services or activities. You will always find a warm welcome!
The Peace of Jesus be with you,
