Scammers are again targeting members of Florida Conference churches, this time with a calendar invitation sent via email from a compromised gmail account. The invitation is for a "FL Conference Worship Service @ Sun Jan 10, 2021 10am - 2pm (EST)". There is no such service, and the links in the email invitation likely lead to viruses, malware or attempts at identity theft or fraud. If you received this email, please disregard it and do not accept the invitation or click on any links in it. If you already have, you should run anti-virus or malware scans on the computers or devices from which you accepted the invitation or clicked the links. You should also delete the item from your calendar.

Al Sharpton and his National Action Network. -> Read more ! >

Please set aside some time to read about what has been taking place in our larger church family. -> Read Celebrate Florida now! ->
Scammers have been targeting members of the United Church of Christ and The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with emails that appear to come from the denominations or their leaders recently. The fraudulent emails look very similar to those we send out regularly, using our logos and branding, and they may appear to come from Florida Conference staff members and/or what appear to be valid UCC email addresses. -> Read more! ->
