|A Word From Tim Downs - July|
GS28 | A Family Reunion
Avery Post, former President of the United Church of Christ, once described the UCC as a "heady exasperating mix...." Every two years this "mix" gathers to do business, worship, offer a witness to the world, and have a family reunion. Our reunion took place in Tampa, Florida at the beginning of July, with seven delegates from the Southeast Conference and over 50 visitors.
The United Church of Christ is joining in the transformation of communication through Facebook, Twitter, and dynamic web presence. Take a minute to check out the General Synod and video highlights on the UCC website.
