Introducing our Speaker!


We are please to announce that our General Minister and President, the Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer, will be joining us for our communion service as both a participant and our keynote speaker. We are all in for a real treat as the Rev. Dorhauer will lead us in thinking about our UCC identity and future.


A just world for all, and a promotional video for all!


We are very excited about this year's Annual Gathering of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ! Try saying that five times fast!! In preparation for this year's gathering, we have produced a video to share with your congregations.

Workshop Tracks


Immigration

Immigration is a hot button topic in our current political climate. This track will have workshops on the Sanctuary movement as well as conversations on refugees and other groups who are still making their way into the United States.

Justice

Justice is integral to our denominational DNA. It is a key part of our new UCC vision and mission which are the basis of our theme for Annual Gathering this year. These workshops will speak to who we are and how we can engage the world around us.

Spiritual Life

We are spiritual beings, life breathed into us by our God. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives us the power to live our lives in response to Jesus' call on each of us. These workshops will strive to reach our deepest part of ourselves as we realize the gifts God has given to us all.

Administration

Running a church is detailed work! Financial statements, bylaws, Roberts' rules…sometimes it can overwhelm us. These workshops will focus on the basics of church admin for both lay people and clergy alike! Think of this as Moderator 101 for all.

Accomodations


We are pleased to offer dormatory housing at Chapman University as a registration add-on. The rates this year are the same as last year, $55 nightly per person for double occupancy, and $90 nightly per person for single occupancy. Linens are provided.

Chapman University is located near the Anaheim Resort District, thus hotels in the area can be a bit pricey—especially in early June. There are plenty of nearby options should you prefer hotel accomodations. We do not have any arrangements for group bookings at any of the nearby hotels.

Register through May 15 for the Early Bird Rate!

Registration this year is $140—up $5 due to increased costs. Before May 16, pay only $125!
