Welcome to the Southern California Nevada Conference Web Site!

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given
us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world
to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message
of reconciliation to us. So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making
his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God”
(2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

We are the United Church of Christ, Southern California Nevada Conference, where “God Is Still Speaking” a message of love, grace, acceptance, and hospitality. We want you to know that “no matter where you are in your life’s journey” you are welcome here! This same spirit of hospitality and acceptance is given by the congregations in our Conference.

These are exciting times in the life of our Conference. We are a Conference that celebrates cultural diversity and where all of God’s children are welcome. Each local church has its unique identity and call to mission, but together we work to proclaim Christ’s message of love and respond to the Gospel’s call for justice and peace. Our three mission priorities of New and Revitalizing Churches, Building Community in Diversity and Youth and Young Adult Ministries guide our call to service. We are fully engaged in serving the world. To that effect we work together with our national office in support of wider church ministries (http://www.ucc.org).

We pray and hope that as you explore this website, you, too become excited and energized by this ministry and join us in proclaiming the Good News to the world! Do not hesitate in contacting us with your questions, feedback or concerns. Above all, keep our people in your daily prayers.

In Christ,

Felix C. Villanueva
Conference Minister
