The United Church of Christ: A Family of Faith for a Global Community
“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” [Micah 6:8]
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” [Matthew 23: 37-39]
Two words are often used to describe the United Church of Christ: freedom and responsibility. We have been described as “a church that is independent and subject to no temporal authority; but equally a church that is the servant of all and minister to everyone.”
Women’s ministry in the United Church of Christ celebrates women in all their diversity. We cherish and work to be advocates on behalf of all women, lay and clergy, the young and the not as young! We see our task as a sharing one: sharing the incredible strengths and resources found in United Church of Christ women so that we may better be about carrying out God’s ministry and mission in the world.
We give thanks that women’s ministries is a partnership with each of you. Part of the partnership is hearing from you, at our annual gatherings or through e-mail or regular mail. Women are wonderfully creative, and we are certain that a great deal is happening in your communities and local churches that would be of interest to other women. We invite you to share that information with us.
