Take Part in a UCC Survey!

UCC Seeks Input on Mission and Vision
The United Church of Christ’s new General Minister and President, the Rev. John C. Dorhauer, has asked church members and friends from around the denomination to help focus the church’s mission and purpose as the 21st century begins. He writes, “The United Church of Christ is seeking to declare a Purpose, a Mission, and a Vision that is consistent with our historic commitments and our current calling; that is large enough to inspire our covenant partners at every level to give themselves fully over to a gospel that changes lives; and that is particular enough to answer the question, ‘Why the United Church of Christ?'”
Later this summer, we will invite Church of the Holy Cross members and friends to gather together to discuss the questions in a group setting, but everyone (whether they plan to participate in that group or not) is invited to consider the survey and respond on their own. The survey is at this website link: https://www.research.net/r/UCCPurposeMission
