Western Association Gathering Set for Oct 26-27

SAVE THE DATE! THE FALL MEETING of the WESTERN ASSOCIATION UCC (formerly the ALA-TENN-MS Association) will take place Friday-Saturday, October 26-27, 2018 at Community Congregational Church UCC, 3481 South Court Street, Montgomery, Alabama.

Our theme will be “Bridging the Gap” based Ezekiel 22:30. At a time of transition in our Conference and Association – and a time when divisions of all kinds are widening in our nation – as people of faith, we are called to fill the gap, stand in the breach, and be God’s bridge to a stronger church and a better world. We will gather for worship and fellowship, to revisit our new Association leadership model and discuss the future of our Conference with Southeast staff and leadership, and to share some of the ways our congregations are “bridging the gaps” in our local communities.

SAVE THE DATE and plan to join us at Community Congregational on Friday, 10/26, for worship and fellowship beginning at 7 PM, and to continue our meeting on Saturday, 10/27, from 9 AM – 3:30 PM. Details of the meeting will be sent out by the end of September.

Please plan now to send clergy and at least 2 (or up to as many as you want) representatives of your church as we gather again at this important moment in the life of our Association, our Conference, and our country. For more information contact Rev. John Gill at [email protected] or Rev. Dorinda Broadnax at [email protected] Thank-you!
