Our church is located on Broadway, the main thoroughfare leading into downtown Newport. To the east the population is comprised primarily of middle to upper class Caucasian couples of fifty years and beyond and Generation Y singles. To the west the population consists of a diverse mix of ethnic communities at varying socio-economic and age levels. Scattered among them is a college age population representing those attending nearby universities. Few in our congregation live close to the church, most drive anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to attend worship.
We have strong ties to the military and their families due to military related industries in the area, members who have retired from the military, and the large Naval Education and Training Center in Newport, which serves to enhance the diversity of the area and our congregation.
