Letter from Our Conference Minister

Dear friends,
We are in the midst of the 33rd General Synod of the United Church of Christ, offered virtually this year. It is an interesting, engaging, challenging, and exhausting experience. I miss the close human and collegial interactions that are usually a part of General Synod. Yet, worship has been inspiring and enlightening; option events have been informative, and the first plenary session went well. It is always interesting to engage with United Church of Christ members from across the nation and our global partners.
This week I wanted to share with you something I explored as we looked at the UCC, the World Council of Churches and the UN. I had heard about – although did not know much about – the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (
Hearing members of the World Council of Churches, and the UCC’s own Cameron Trimble (now the CEO of Convergence) share insights about these goals was very enlightening. The discussion broadened my view of the importance of mission and how our local mission intersects with national and global efforts. For your information, the 17 sustainable development goals are:
1.   No poverty
2.   Zero hunger
3.   Good health and well-being
4.   Quality education
5.   Gender equality
6.   Clean water and sanitation
7.   Affordable and clean energy
8.   Decent work and economic growth
9.   Industry, innovation, and infrastructure
10. Reduced inequalities
11. Sustainable cities and communities
12. Responsible consumption and production
13. Climate action
14. Life below water
15. Life on land
16. Peace, justice, and strong institutions
17. Partnerships for the goals

How are your congregation's local mission partnerships and project advancing these goals? Sometimes we can feel all alone during the community work we are doing. Yet, we are not alone. Of course, God is with us. It can be even more comforting to know that all our congregations, all the Church, all the nation and through the UN, a large portion of the world is also working on transforming the world into a place that is safe, healthy, sustainable, and empowering for all peoples.
I encourage you to take some time to review the UN information and become aware of the broad interconnected relationships your congregation has with the rest of the world.


As our world seems to be opening up again, might it be time to dust off (or find) those needles, hooks and yarn again?? The idea of sitting outside on a summer evening and catching up with each other, sounds like a perfect thing to do!

So - - - we will be starting up our Faith in Stitches group THIS TUESDAY, July 20th!!!  Just bring your lawn chair and whatever project you might be working on, and meet at Faith from 6:30 - 8:00!!!  We can also borrow chairs from inside if need be. We are rain or shine!  (I still have my key!)

We would love to welcome any new, interested friends, neighbors or members to join along!! Also glad to teach or tackle any mess...!!!

See you soon!!!

The Fundraising committee is requesting that the items you plan to donate are in good shape and sellable. We would like to concentrate our time on sorting and pricing, so if you think it is worth something please donate it, but if it is bordering on trash please dispose of it and save us time. Thank you ahead of time for your help with this part of the yard sale.
Recycling Starts Again

Beginning August 15, 2021 we will be collecting plastic shopping bags and all other soft plastic bags (#4).  By February 15, 2022 we will need to collect 500 pounds of recyclable plastic in order to earn another
