What Matters


What Matters includes a variety of resources to connect your questions of faith with the deep faith expressed by the UCC.  Discover what matters through reflection, stories from UCC congregations and members, stories from history, Bible study, prayer, worship, and service.

Explore on your own or with others. There are plenty of suggestions for seekers, new member classes, baptism preparation or membership groups, or pastor classes.
