Focus Groups on New Conference Scheduled for January


Below is a letter from the The Rev. Dr. Jim Antal, The Rev. Barbara Libby and The Rev. Kent Siladi, Conference Ministers of the Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut Conferences.


As we continue to explore the new Together, As One Conference, we invite you to share your voice to help us envision how together, we are called to live the love and justice of Jesus. 

Please prayerfully consider attending one of the several group discussions that are planned between Jan. 18 and Jan. 23 at the various UCC Church locations listed below.  Simply select the date, time and location that is most convenient with your schedule and join us to share your perspective. These groups will be facilitated by Jim Schnurbusch, of the St. Louis firm OrgStory, who has been engaged as a consultant for this process.

We would ask you to use this form to RSVP so that if there is inclement weather forecast and we need to move the gathering online, we will be in touch with information on how you can participate.
