Where is parking?
Our main parking lots wrap around our building, and on Sunday mornings people park in any of the lots. To get direct access to the Sanctuary/Worship space, park on the Sanctuary side of the building (East Entrance).
Designated spaces especially for visitors are available near the sanctuary entrance. Parking for those with limited mobility are directly near the sanctuary entrance, and Gutherie Social Hall entrance.
What does "Recognizing Christ in All" mean?
At Newburg Church, we often say that we strive to recognize Christ in all people. This is part of our pledge to welcome all persons, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, culture, citizenship, language, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, economic condition, physical or mental ability, or any other status or condition.
Have questions? Need information? There is a welcome center at the heart of our church and can be seen from all entrances. Please stop by to ask any questions you may have. Staffed by a friendly and knowledgeable church member, this is the place to find brochures about Methodism or information about church programs and activities. If the greeter doesn’t know the answer, he or she will certainly know where to find it.
Worshipping at Newburg Church
You will be greeted again as you enter the sanctuary. An usher will provide you with a bulletin, which will guide you through the service. During the service, a Friendship Pad is passed for all worshipers to sign. Please take a moment to sign it so church members can greet you after the service and so we may send a welcome note during the following week. You will hear an announcement about our Welcome Center and an invitation to receive a special gift for first-time visitors. We invite you to take that invitation seriously and stop by to pick up a a gift along with other information about our church.
What Happens After Church?
Many things! Newburg is a busy and happening place, not just on Sunday mornings. Directly after worship at 9:15am, there is a period of ConneXions (which is like coffee hour. Beyond Sunday, you will be amazed at the diversity of activities you will find each week.
Does the UMC affirm women in ministry?
Clergywomen have been part of Methodism since John Wesley licensed Sarah Crosby to preach in 1761. Although women were ordained in the Methodist tradition as early as the late 1800s, it was the May 4, 1956 General Conference vote for full clergy rights that forever changed the face of ordained clergy.
