Annual Meeting - October 24: Christ's Love in Action:  3 Great Loves

This year's Annual Meeting will center on the 3 Great Loves campaign of the UCC which will wrap up at the 33rd General Synod of the United Church of Christ. Our focus will be on how we can uniquely continue to tell and live out the story of Christ's love through expressing love to neighbor, children, and creation.   We hope to inspire you and your church to continue to impact and transform the Church and the world in a common purpose of creating a just world for all.
