Why I'm Glad to be A Part of the UCC

Dear Members & Friends of
First Congregational United Church of Christ:

As many of you know, I attended the
United Church of Christ's 31st General Synod
in Baltimore, MD this Summer.  The theme
of General Synod was "Make Glad."

One of the things that makes me glad
to be a part of the United Church of Christ (UCC)
is the new two-year mission, vision, and purpose
campaign that the UCC has undertaken:
"3 Great Loves: Love of Neighbor, Love of Children & Love of Creation."                                                                                                                                                                                     Local UCC churches throughout the U.S. will be sharing how they are                                                                                                                                                                            transforming local communities through their ministries.

One of the ways we show our love of neighbor
is by working together with other faiths to
promote peace and justice.

Check out this link to the UCC video,
"Trading Places," which emphasizes interfaith unity:

At First Congregational UCC, we are visibly showing
our love for our neighbors by supporting and volunteering to help                                                                                                                                                                                          Rochester Refugee Resettlement Services, the Salem Nutrition Center,                                                                                                                                                                                           the Perinton  Food Shelf as well as our new Job Seekers Support Group.

Let's keep on loving God by loving our neighbors.

Blessings,

Pastor Greg Rupright
