With all that is happening in this nation, it was good to have this boost.  May we all do God’s work.  God bless us all,”
Susan Grim of UCC Congregational Church of Norwell, MA, wrote during the first official Annual Meeting of the Southern New England Conference, UCC. She may have been talking about the boost of a (virtual) gathering, but these words capture the blessing that is our unified Southern New England Conference!

From pandemic to political unrest to continued racial injustice, our strength has been tested more than ever this past year. While this windy and obstacle-laden path may not be the route we were prepared for, perhaps it is the road we were meant to take. Standing up for our beliefs. Learning and adapting. Caring for the most vulnerable. In response to all that is happening in this nation, we have witnessed many small wonders that remind us that we are in this together:

  • Clergy members teaming up with SNEUCC staff members to develop an Easter service used by many others in the weeks that followed.
  • The launch of the Faith in Our Future Together program, under which up to $1 million in Conference assets will be offered to selected local churches in the form of recoverable grants, recognizing that the disruptions may be magnified by systemic racism in congregations of Black people, indigenous people and other people of color.
  • National UCC and the SNEUCC collaborating to get the word out to churches regarding the CARES Act and Families First Act.
  • $200,500 raised by SNEUCC churches and individuals to help eradicate approximately $26.2 million in medical debt for the most vulnerable people in CT, MA, RI, and Brooklyn, NY.
  • Congregations and clergy from both UCC conferences and our ecumenical siblings throughout the country benefitting from extensive pandemic resources on the SNEUCC website.
  • Pastors and lay leaders committing their time to learning valuable new skills through their participation in a variety of webinars offered by the conference.

We will continue to support you, the members of our Southern New England Conference.

We will listen together. We will learn together. We will live the Love of Justice and Jesus together.

 

Please consider a gift to the Friends of the Conference appeal 
so that we can continue to support UCCers and congregations together!
