Tired? Just need a break? Looking for a weekend getaway?

Rest your body and your soul in a light filled space perched on a hillside. Enjoy the warmth of friendships and the support of loving community.

No need to drive for miles. Join us at Newport United Methodist Church each Sunday morning at 9:30 am for a little retreat time close to the city.

Sabbath is God’s gift to us – another reminder that we need to care for our bodies, minds, and souls with refreshment of rest and relaxation as well as a good environment and healthy food. Sunday morning worship at Newport UMC is an opportunity to experience community, renewal of the soul, and time away from all the tasks and obligations that fill the other six days of the week.

We look forward to welcoming you.


                             ALICE MUNGER

On April 21st, longtime Newport UMC member Alice Munger passed away peacefully, surrounded by family. Most if not all of our sanctuary banners were created by Alice, besides curtains and valances and the handbell choir’s table pad covers. She is remembered as always having a sewing project going.

Alice was preceded by her parents and siblings, and by husband Noble Munger. She is survived by her children, Judy (Fred) Tegeler, Vicki (Ron) Podpeskar, Nancy (Bruce) Domeier, and Bud (Julie); 10 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and brother Harold Carver. Memorial service is on Thursday, April 28 at 11 a.m. at Newport United Methodist Church, 1596 11th Avenue, Newport, MN  55055-1649. Visitation is one hour before the service at the church.
