Annual Meeting 

Every year the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences of the United Church of Christ (UCC) gather to make important decisions regarding their ministry, business, and future. It is also an important time for us to learn, grow, and celebrate! Depending on the year the three Conferences gather separately or all together.

In 2022, we will be gathering jointly on the afternoon of October 9th through the morning of October 11th. The event will be hybrid, offering ways to participate in person or online. The in-person form of the gathering will take place in Sioux City, IA. The event will be centered around the theme “Loving Is Who We Are” and will include workshops, a keynote speaker, worship, mission work, lots of time for connection, and of course the business meetings! Early bird registration is now open! Until July 10th, you can register for a discounted rate. Registration for online participation will open on July 1st. Stay tuned for more details!
