We are HOSTING! the 53rd UCC Michigan Conference Annual Meeting at First Congregational Church Charlotte, October 12 & 13, 2018.
This is truly an honor and we are looking forward to sharing our hospitality with our fellow Michigan Conference Churches. The theme is Be Not Afraid (Isaiah 40:9) “Get you up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good tidings; lift up your voice with strength O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings, lift it up, be not afraid ….”, encouraging us to raise our voices. The keynote speaker, Rev. Dr. Alice Hunt, is an immediate past President, Chicago Theological Seminary, Vice-Chair, United Church board of Directors and starting in July 2018 will be the Executive Director, American Academy of Religion.
Each of our conference local churches is encouraged and entitled to send two delegates to celebrate, fellowship, sing and conduct the business of the United Church of Christ in Michigan. Visitors and guests are also welcome. This year there will also be a companion Michigan UCC youth event at Olivet College.
