Community Service

Nomads 2019:  Nomads are volunteers who take an RV and go where help is needed.  Click on the following link for information on Rod and Janie Reeder’s 2019 Nomad journey:  Newark FUMC Nomad 2019


Within our faith community our service includes:

Family Promise of Wayne County: A non-denominational organization dedicated to helping children and their families move from homelessness to sustainable independence. This program is new to Wayne County in the fall of 2018.

Praise the Lord:  Our first family has graduated from the program and is living in their new home in Sodus.  A new family is in the program that we are helping.

We need more volunteers to be at the Day Center in Lyons during the day and to support Host churches with meals, hospitality and over-night coverage.  If you are interested in being a volunteer, contact Elsie Dedrick.  Training will be done at our church. (Newark First UMC).

Newsletters can be found at   For more information, please contact Elsie Dedrick.

Caring and Sharing:  The Newark First UMC Caring and Sharing group meets Thursdays at 10:00am at the church.  This group provides cards and prayers to those in need.  Gift bags of personal items are provided for Hannick Hall’s women in need overcoming addiction.
