Stoking the Fires of Justice: A Revival for Social ChangeNovember 8, 2014
Justice & Witness Ministries with the Central Pacific & Pacific Northwest UCC Conferences invite you to a time of inspiring worship, preaching, and training to fan the flames of justice in the Northwest. We seek hearts aglow with the fire of the Holy Spirit. We come together to pray and proclaim, to sing and rejoice, to receive an abundance of grace in our lives, our ministries and our churches. Like the disciples after Pentecost, we gather to be re-inspired to be Christ’s Church in the world. Join us!
Unveiling of Antoinette Brown Blackwell markerNovember 9, 2014
The First Church in Oberlin UCC, in partnership with the United Church of Christ, will host an unveiling of an historical marker honoring the Rev. Antoinette Brown Blackwell, the first woman ordained (and by one of our predecessor bodies, the Congregational Church). Antoinette Brown attended Oberlin, and while she did not initially receive a degree from them after completing her coursework, this was eventually rectified. This historical marker will share about her life, ministry, connection to Oberlin and to our denomination, and is paid for in large part through gifts made to the UCC for this purpose.
