Ministers’ Moments: A Space for Authentic Conversation About Ministry

Are you an actively serving authorized minister or lay pastor? On the first Tuesday of the month at 12:00pm CT you can join a Zoom call to connect with your Ministerial Staff and fellow clergy through a book study! These are public, non-confidential conversations for our active church leaders to check in and hold each other in a peaceful space, ask questions, and pray together in the midst of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. In June we will be starting Atlas of the Heart by Brené Brown. 

Clergy Coffee Hour

A program partnered with Ministers’ Moments, Clergy Coffee Hour is a time for clergy in our Conferences to connect and visit via Zoom on the first Thursday of the month at 12:00pm CT. Sessions will be hosted by ACM Rev. Kendy Miller. All Clergy in our Conferences are welcome to join the Zoom call.

Clergy leaders in our Conferences can meet for online discussion with our ministerial staff at 12:00pm CT on Tuesdays and for fellowship/coffee hour on Thursdays/ Visit www.ucctcm.org/calendar for the Zoom link.

Make yourself at home here, reply to a story the insight you gleaned from it, and if you feel inspired to add and grow our ministry, find the Donate button in the main menu to make your contribution! We are glad you are here!
