Welcome to the Conferences
Welcome friends! As we often say in the United Church of Christ (UCC), no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here! As you navigate your way through our website you will find stories, resources, and connections that are intended to introduce newcomers to our beloved church, provide tools for seasoned leaders on church committees and boards, and offer points of interest to the many others in between. Want to find a congregation? View the IA Directory of Congregations, NE Directory of Congregations, or SD Directory of Congregations. 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!
WHY are we called to be the UCC?
The Boards of Directors of the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota UCC Conferences gathered with our Conference staff at a retreat in April 2019. Together we worshipped and discerned our WHY and HOW statements, naming WHY we are called to be the UCC in this particular time and place and HOW we intended to heed that call in each of our conferences. It was joyful work that now directs our planning and resources. Our staff and Boards of Directors will use these statements to guide our programs and work and to assess our progress in the years to come.
