Imagine What's Possible, Florida!

A special giving opportunity now.
A special dinner July 2, 2011.

Welcome!  You've reached the registration site for "Imagine What's Possible, Florida!," a fundraising dinner to be held in Tampa, Fla., on July 2, 2011, during the 28th General Synod of the United Church of Christ.  The dinner will cap a $200,000 campaign celebrating Florida's welcome of the UCC's national denomination meeting.  Funds raised will support a "God is Still Speaking" media campaign in Florida (50%), expenses of hosting the General Synod (25%), special mission projects (15%) and the UCC's national Strategic Initiatives Fund (10%).

The gala reception and dinner will honor campaign donors, mark our impact, and celebrate "being the UCC."  It will feature special entertainment and an opportunity to meet UCC General Minister and President Geoffrey Black.  It will be held on "Sun Coast Saturday," an entire day of Synod devoted to worship, learning, fun and celebration.

Registration is now closed. You may check in person for availability shortly before the event.
