When You Visit

Welcome!.  We are really glad you have checked us out!  We know that coming to a new church can sometimes be uncomfortable, so here’s what to expect.  We have two buildings – already sounds confusing, right?  The first building you come to is our Nurture building which houses the nurseries for young folks up through Kindergarten.  Or you are most welcome to have your children accompany you to worship in the sanctuary building. We love kids!

About the sanctuary….when you come in, there will be a greeter to meet you at the bottom of the staircase at the Welcome Table, which has a visitor packet for you with information about the church.  The sanctuary is upstairs; there is an elevator for your use.  At the top of the stairs an usher will give you a bulletin and help you find a seat.

We want you to worship at your comfort level.  Sit or stand, sing or not;  we gather to praise and listen to God’s Word, to pray and love God, each other and all who come to worship, accepting and welcoming them just as they are.  We want all who come to know and follow Jesus.

Sometime after the worship service, you will receive a letter from our pastor as well as a gift bag from our Bread of Life team.  We are a church of relationships and connections and we hope you will join us at one of our worship services.

The “Need to Knows”

Welcome to White Clay Creek! We are so glad you’ve found us, and we hope to meet you soon. Below are some “Need to Knows” that should answer some immediate questions you might have. Feel free to browse around the rest of the website to

How is White Clay Creek different than other churches?

White Clay Creek has been located in Newark for almost 300 years! We are located on the corner of Polly drummond Hill Rd. and Kirkwood Highway.
One of the distinct things about our church is that we’re an all-generations community of faith. There’s a place for you here, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

What can I expect on the weekends?

We have two worship services with distinct voices. One traditional (8:30am) and one more contemporary in feel (11am). In between the services we have a Sunday School hour for all ages.

What do you have for my kids?

The White Clay Creek Children’s Ministry provides quality programming, ministry and care for children of all ages.We strive to create environments that are both safe, encouraging and fun for the child’s age and stage of life. Our teachers and staff undergo background checks and regular training and equipping to ensure that the very best care is being provided for the children at all times. We love what we do and the children we get to work with!
Junior high students grades 6-7 have a special program for them designed to explore the core values of what it means to know, love and serve Jesus Christ. Students in 8th grade participate in a special process to help them explore what it means to be a disciple of Christ as a Covenant Partner (member) in the life of the church. On Sunday mornings High school and college students are encouraged to explore their gifts and calling as they are given the opportunity to come alongside others by using their gifts in service or they can participate in one of our adult classes. For more information on all of our programming for certain ages, please click the links below.
