Highlights of What’s Happening Around the Conferences
Our world needs our collective witness now more than ever! I invite you to gather with me financially as well as spiritually, by becoming a Friend of the Nebraska Conference. Joining our gifts together, to celebrate and promote the truth of our risen Savior and the power of Life is a powerful witness to the world! I am hopeful you will prayerfully consider giving to the your Conference this year, so we may continue our good work and ministry together.
We are looking for an epic team member to serve in and on behalf of the United Church of Christ in the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota UCC Conferences. It is an exciting season of formation for the team as we live more fully into what it is to be doing a new thing.
It is my opinion that reopening churches for worship is a worse idea now than it was in March. Infection numbers are rising precipitously. Recent ratings on cases per capita basis having Iowa at #8, Nebraska at #21, and South Dakota at #27. Attending church is considered to be among the highest risk activities.
