All are invited to join us at the Conference Annual Celebration June 7 and 8 at Elmhurst College. In this exciting time of new possibilities, the Conference Council extends a wide welcome to the full Illinois Conference of the United Church of Christ.
We will gather together to worship and to be inspired. We will enrich and encourage each other as we dream and take the actions that will define the next Chapter of life as the Illinois Conference UCC. You will hear from the Interim Conference Minister, Rev. Justo Gonzalez, II, who is working diligently to free the Conference from its moorings, and move us boldly into the open waters, enabling us to bring the love of God to an anxious world, in new ways that the world can hear.
You will be exposed to the energy and enthusiasm of the Sustainability Committee, and you will have a chance to inspire them with your dreams, and guide them with your feedback. If we would move purposefully into the future, we count on the gathered community to discern God’s will. We desire action, but we are most effective when we are moving together and speaking the truth with love.
