Current News from the United Church of Christ
  • Voices, actions throughout UCC call for strategies to end police violence

    From Atlantic to Pacific, United Church of Christ congregations, clergy and Conference leaders have marched and spoken out in response to the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. They have called for prayer and action – and for Americans to recognize the stubbornness of racism and police brutality.

  • General Synod 33 to be a virtual experience

    For the first time ever, the United Church of Christ General Synod will gather virtually in 2021. The biennial gathering is moving entirely online next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The United Church of Christ Board made this historic decision this week after considering a number of factors.

  • Clergy of color lead marches in Minnesota, accompanied by white colleagues

    UCC clergy from the Twin Cities and across Minnesota took to the streets on Tuesday afternoon in a silent march and a prayful protest, first in Minneapolis and then in St. PaulThe action took hundreds to the block where George Floyd was killed in police custody.

  • UCC Board: We condemn racist actions

    The United Church of Christ Board issues a statement of solidarity with National Officers, Conferences and local churches condemning systemic racism and pledging to build a strong anti-racist commitment in the church to show Black Lives Matter in the kingdom of God.

  • Racism a deadly virus that white people must help eradicate, UCC panel says

    The virus infecting the killers of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and other Black people in America is much older than COVID-19. It will stop killing people only if society, the church and especially white people focus relentlessly on a cure, over the long haul, using resources that are already available. That was the word from a May 31 UCC online panel discussion, "The Cross and the Lynching Tree."
