General Synod

Wisconsin hosted General Synod!  June 21-25 2019

“When we light just one candle in the darkness, it illuminates dimly, but when many candles are lit, and all let their lights shine, together we can bring brightness to the world.”
― The Rev. Franz Rigert, Wisconsin Conference Minister.


Communion sets for General Synod are being created by our own Rev. Colleen Kwong

For the first time – ever! – the General Synod of the United Church of Christ is going to convene in Wisconsin. We’re very excited!

We are pleased to announce that longtime UCC couples, Revs. Deborah & Tom Payden and Ms. Bonnie Andrews & Rev. Tim Perkins have enthusiastically agreed to serve as 2019 General Synod Local Arrangements Committee Coordinators!

While the national UCC handles most of the General Synod meeting details and lodging preparations, the Wisconsin Conference is responsible for several hospitality and local logistics tasks.  Stay tuned, as we’ll be keeping you updated on the planning effort via email, web and the Wisconsin Conference Life newsletter.
