The Florida Conference will be underwriting two "Ministry Burnout and Self-Care" online workshops, one for clergy and members in discernment on Jan. 27 from 1-4 p.m. ET, and another for UCC lay leaders Feb. 5 from 2-5 p.m. ET. Florida Conference clergy who attend will earn one unit of boundary training credit. Registration is required, but there is no cost to participate. The workshops will take place via Zoom video conference, and links will be emailed to registrants the week before the workshops. -> Register today ->
Scam artists are once again sending emails to UCC members in the Florida Conference (and other conferences) that appear to come from the conference minister, the former moderator or other church leaders. The emails say something like "I need your help with something urgent. Please reply at your earliest convenience." Or they may say something like, "Are you busy? I have a matter I need you to handle discreetly, but I'm going into a meeting, no calls, so kindly respond via email." Those who reply are typically asked to purchase and send some form of gift cards, for which they will supposedly be reimbursed. You can read more about these phishing scams -> here ->.
