We Want to Keep in Touch With YOU
Your National Association values your membership and wants to provide you with current up to date information. There are several ways to stay in touch with the NACCC:

Continue reading the NACCC News: It is filled with updates from member churches, leadership, missionaries, and staff.

2. Talk to your Year Round Delegate (YRD): Most member churches have a YRD, who is tasked with communicating between the NACCC and the church. If your church does not have a YRD, see our website for more information on the role of the YRD and how to become one.


3. Send a delegate and/or church members to the Annual Meeting and Conference: This experience can be extremely valuable. Missionaries from our "Supported Missions", program are in attendance, exciting workshops are presented and you can enjoy the chance to fellowship with other Congregationalists.

4. Give us a call: If you have questions about NACCC services or need assistance in anyway, pick up the phone and give us a call. We are here to support our member churches in any way we can which includes connecting you to useful resources and other leadership.
