General Synod News

Resources are available to help UCC members and churches act on recent General Synod resolutions on climate justice: two videos of encouragement from famous scientists, plus ways to take action to support concrete solutions.


The United Church of Christ's General Synod has called for a review of "the processes for birthing, admitting, strengthening, revitalizing, and releasing congregations."


Across the U.S., more than 200 UCC congregations are providing hospitality, accompaniment, and support for the resettlement of newcomers. Here's one example. Through Eden UCC and Ministerio Latino in California, The Good Shepherd UCC in Arizona, and Park Avenue Church, NYC, working together, the light of Christ just got brighter.


The Rev. Amy Butler brought the 32nd General Synod of the United Church of Christ to a rousing close Tuesday night June 25, exhorting worshipers to “lift up your eyes. Don’t look behind you. There’s a new future dawning right ahead of you.”

 


Twelve UCC members believe that changing the resolution process could make the General Synod more effective in its Christian witness. So they just proposed a resolution  with very specific instructions for creating an action team to work on that.
