Announcements 

PENTECOST SUNDAY is May 20. Again this year we will celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit with a joint worship event and a special guest - our new South Central Conference minister the Rev. Dr. Don Longbottom. Strengthen the Church Special Offering. 

STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH OFFERING

As we enter into the season of Pentecost, let us rejoice in the Holy Spirit which guides and energizes our ministries. During this season, let’s remember the covenant which binds our congregation with so many local churches and communities dedicated to building a just world for all through our love of God and neighbor.

Support the Strengthen the Church Special Mission Offering. This offering, supports the expansion and vitality of the United Church of Christ.  The first half of this offfering funds ministry within our local conference while the second half goes strengthens the church nationally!

The Strengthen the Church offering will be received on May 20, 2018!  Our beloved denomination needs our support to fulfill on its commitment to creating a just world for all by investing in new ministries and practices that meet the emerging needs of local communities. Please prayerfully consider making a gift.  Thank for your support.

THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST has a vision of a just world for all. In this world all are welcomed, everyone is loved and justice is inherent. The 3 Great Loves is the denomination’s opportunity to express how our Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, and Love of Creation work together to address the inequities in our current world.


3 Great Loves is a denomination- wide effort that is about engaging the UCC to take action and to show the impact of the UCC, working together as one church, with one voice and one vision – a vision of a A Just World for All.


Beginning at Synod 2017 and ending at Synod 2019, through the lens of the 3 Great Loves, the United Church of Christ in its many settings of ministry will discern and lift up how we act upon these 3 Great Loves. As we do so, we will tell the story of how we are impacting and transforming the world, as covenantal partners united in common purpose and mission.
During these upcoming two years, there will be moments of special invitation to participate in this denomination-wide undertaking. One by one we will focus on each of the 3 Great Loves in service to our communities.

There’s never been a greater need for love – 3 Great Loves is how we can partner together as one voice, one church to live into our vision:  A Just World for All.
