2017 Annual Gathering of the Florida Conference

Now is the time to gather the church, to come together for fellowship, learning and fun, and to celebrate and recommit to our shared covenant as we converge on Daytona Beach Oct. 12-14 for the 2017 Annual Gathering of the Florida Conference United Church of Christ. 

The United Church of Christ in Florida is a progressive Christian movement that represents the great diversity that is the United Church of Christ. No two congregations are exactly alike, each a reflection of their individual culture, theology, setting and heritage. Yet, while we are very different from one another, we are connected and share in common a love of our neighbors, a concern for stewarding the gift of creation, and a desire to create a just world for all.

This year's theme is "Make Glad the Deeper Waters," and our scripture will be Genesis 1: 1-3. We hope you will join us, as lay people, musicians and clergy gather to worship, deliberate, learn, serve and Make Glad together.

Registration is $99 per person and includes lunch and dinner on Friday. Oct. 13, at the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort / Ocean Walk Village. A registration option with no meals included is available for $49. You may purchase lunch and dinner seperately, for $25 and $30 respectively, either through this registration form or with cash or check at the event.

In addition, there will be a free reception with heavy appetizers, drinks and entertainment Thursday evening, Oct. 12, at Seabreeze United Church of Christ. The reception is open to everyone, and whether you are joining us for the rest of the Gathering or not, we hope we'll see you there.

The 2017 Annual Gathering will conclude at noon Saturday, Oct. 14, after a closing worship service at Seabreeze UCC.
