The UCC Votes

We are in the midst of a crucial election. It’s important that we, as people of faith, understand our vital role in the process.

We in the United Church of Christ (UCC), as followers of Jesus, and seekers of justice are deeply political. Our love of neighbor demands that we care about the issues being addressed by the politicians representing us.
