About Us

We Are Different Than Any Other Church You Have Encountered!

At Newell Presbyterian Church, we seek to be more than people who merely sit on the pews, but to be dynamic disciples of Christ:

  • who actively let people know that they are loved by God,
  • by compassionately showing them that they are loved by us,
  • so that they may be encouraged to passionately follow Christ and respond with love to God and for all of God's people.

Love is the Purpose

Newell Presbyterian Church has been called by the Holy Spirit to worship God, to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, to minister to the community, and to promote peace and justice. Our MISSION is to develop and nurture disciples of Jesus Christ so that GOD’S LOVE may OVERFLOW more and more in our community and in the world.

We believe that God is love and that God’s love was revealed in Jesus Christ (1 John 4:7-11). The purpose of life is for all of us to be united in this love (Ephesians 1:3-10). The greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all of our mind, heart, soul, and strength (Deuteronomy 6:4-8; Mark 12:28-31). The second is similar, to love our neighbors as ourselves (Romans 13:8-10). So, whatever we do, must be do must be done in love. (1 Corinthians 16:14). For, it is the love of Christ that urges us on (2 Corinthians 5:14).

Overview of Opportunities

Newell Presbyterian Church provides several opportunities to abound more and more in God’s love (Philippians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 3:12). This website will help you find areas in which you can grow in your walk with God. We have divided the opportunities into four sections:

1) Loving with our Mind (Educational Opportunities)

2) Loving with our Heart (Fellowship Opportunities)

3) Loving with our Soul (Opportunities to Serve the Church)

4) Loving with our Strength (Opportunities to Serve the Community)

We encourage everyone to attend worship regularly and get involved in each of the four areas. In other words, we invite you to participate in something we like to call “Worship + 4.” Of course, some activities will overlap — Sunday School could count as an educational or fellowship opportunity. We leave it up to you to try to find the appropriate balance of activities in your own Christian journey. It is our prayer that you might discover joy and purpose as you continue to deepen your commitment to Jesus Christ and become enriched in his love.

We Care About Children, Youth, and Families

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs" (Matthew 19:14). We have a full range of programs for children and youth. And, we have a nursery available at all times. There is a children's message during every worship service and children can also participate in a children's chapel. We also have a wonderful Children's Sunday school program in which they learn the stories of scripture in some very creative ways. Click the link to learn more about our ministry with children.

Our youth group (6th-12th grades) is a very welcoming community in which friendships are built and a relationship with God is nurtured. We have several special youth activities like lock-ins and cross-country mission trips throughout the year. Our youth meet regularly for Sunday School, Wednesday Night Fellowship, and Service Projects. Click the link for more info about Youth.

For adults and families we have a wide range of Sunday school classes, Bible Studies, fellowship, and service activities. Please click on the links to Education, Fellowship, and Reaching Out to learn more.
