Association churches have responded positively to the cluster meetings! 

Our Cluster meetings have been a great success – helping to nurture the vitality of the Central churches, and strengthen the covenant between them, the Association and the Massachusetts Conference! The Board of Directors will continue Cluster meetings this year with a twist – we will have speakers at each meeting to address issues YOU have expressed interest in. Each church is encouraged to attend at least one cluster meeting a year. We ask that 2 to 3 church representatives attend, and if the pastor is available, they are invited too!

The Rev. Dr. Jonathan New will be participating in the April cluster meeting and will be talking about Stewardship-Best Practices. People’s giving patterns and motivation for giving are changing and we are feeling the direct effects. Rev. New is the Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship and Financial Development and will share stewardship best practices responsive to these changes that still remain true to who we are as people of faith. Each church that is represented at this meeting will receive a complimentary copy of "A Church Finance Handbook".

We are asking that you register for the meeting so that we can plan accordingly. You can register by using the link to the right or you may contact Deb Holmes at holmesd@macucc.org or 508-963-8106.
