Thank you to all churches that participated in the "Be the Church of the Month" contest!
This monthly, church-wide contest, which began in June 2016 and continued through January 2017, invited all UCC churches to participate by living out statements from the UCC's popular "Be the Church" message.
Each month, a statement was announced and churches were invited via email to submit information, stories, photos, and videos of things they were doing to make that particular statement a reality. The results were truly inspiring!
All winning churches earned the “Be the Church of the Month” title for the month after their entry was chosen. They have been featured on UCC social media and ucc.org and received a "Be the Church" banner of their choice from UCC Resources' "Be the Church" collection.
