32nd General Synod of the United Church of Christ ~ June 21 – 25
Every two years, General Synod brings together thousands of faithful members of the United Church of Christ for formal church witness, inspirational worship, and fellowship with friends (new and old).
The Moderator, Mr. Norman Williams, the Assistant Moderator, the Rev. Penny Lowes, the United Church of Christ Board of Directors, the Collegium of Officers and the members of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ will welcome delegates, visitors and guests to General Synod 2019 that will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June 21-25.
The theme for the General Synod 2019 is based on the scripture Matthew 5:16,
In the same way let your light shine before others …. “When we light just one candle in the darkness, it illuminates dimly, but when many candles are lit, and all let their lights shine, together we can bring brightness to the world,” shared The Rev. Franz Rigert, Wisconsin Conference Minister.
Always an extraordinary event in the life of the church, delegates and visitors will experience dynamic workshops, generative plenary sessions, inspirational worship, engaging youth activities, special banquets, and luncheons. Delegates, including Pastor Mary Beth, will conduct the business of the denomination and set priorities for our ministries. Keynote speakers will offer illumination and insight into challenges that face our congregations and communities. And delegates and visitors alike will stand up for issues that demand a faithful witness, worship together, and participate in local community service projects.
