Now is the time to gather the church and to celebrate and recommit to our shared covenant as The United Church of Christ in Florida comes together at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, 9700 International Drive in Orlando, Oct. 12-14 for the 2023 Annual Gathering of the Florida Conference of the United Church of Christ. This year's theme is "Dancing in the Dark: We Shall Prophesy!" (Acts 2:17-20). In addition to other invited guests and friends, we are honored and excited to be joined by the Rev. Dr. Karen Georgia Thompson, recently elected as the 10th General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ at the 34th General Synod. -> Register today! -> Get Agenda -> Proposed 2024 Budget -> 2022 Minutes ->
The Florida Conference will be underwriting a "Clergy Burnout and Self-Care" online workshop on Oct. 27 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET. Together we will acknowledge the very real risk of clergy spiritual, physical and relational exhaustion, and we will explore how to recognize the red flags of unhealthy ministry relationships and practice self-care so as to avoid burnout. Florida Conference clergy who attend will earn one unit of boundary training credit. Registration is required, but there is no cost to participate for clergy who have their standing in Florida. Cost is $40 for clergy who have their standing in another conference or association. The workshop will take place via Zoom video conference, and links will be emailed to registrants the week before the workshop. Register today!
