Newtown Congregational Church, UCC
The Head of Newtown Congregational Church is Christ and we as a church choose to follow his lead.
Our congregation understands that to enhance a life of faith a deep commitment is needed beyond the Sunday morning worship time and therefore they support and participate in all areas of the church. Our lay leadership provides many areas of important and much needed work through endless volunteering of time, talent, and treasure.
NCC is a thriving church because of the dedicated involvement and participation of its congregation. The organizational structure is based on volunteers filling positions in each of five Ministries and Core Leadership Team (oversight group).
The Ministries, with the exception of the Foundational Resources Ministry, have one Liaison and two Coordinators who serve as the leadership. Foundational Resources Ministry is broken into a building maintenance team and a personnel team. Once a month, the Ministry liaisons and the Foundational Resources Manger gather with the Core Leadership Team to communicate about our spiritual health and growth, our activities, and any issues needing attention.
Each Ministry focuses on specific aspects of the church:
CORE LEADERSHIP TEAM (CLT): Long & Short Range Vision, Oversight, Stewardship, Finances, Personnel, Annual Meeting.
CONGREGATIONAL CARE MINISTRY (CCM): Care for the NCC Congregation, Visitations & Care Cards, Prayer Groups, Fellowships, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Parish Nurse Program, Social Gatherings.
FOUNDATIONAL RESOURCES MINISTRY (FRM): Building Maintenance and Usage, Finances.
GLOBAL COMMUNITY MINISTRY (GCM): "Care for Our Neighbors", Mission Groups, Cornerstone Thrift Center.
NURTURE MINISTRY (NM): Spiritual Formation and Education for all ages.
WORSHIP MINISTRY (WM): Services, Music Ministry, Altar Flowers, and Connection Time.
