MEUCC ALIVE!

MEUCC ALIVE! is an on-going series published in our weekly All-Conference E-mail (ACE) about the many vital and vibrant ministries of the churches of the Maine Conference, UCC. We welcome submissions and suggestions of articles (send us your pictures too). Our focus will be on those churches that are doing a new thing! Let’s share our stories, good ideas, and talk about experiments that have succeeded (and those that have failed!). Send your articles or ideas to Beth Campbell at conference@maineucc.org. We can’t wait to see how your congregation is alive!

National Youth Event Scholarships Available

The quadrennial UCC National Youth Event is coming up in July in Orlando, Florida, and for the first time, families are invited to participate along with teens. Check out all the action by clicking here.

Already, the Maine UCC Resourcing the Local Church Committee has been asked to help fund our youth to go to this event. Because we wish to make sure that the youth in all our churches have an equal opportunity to attend, and because we wish to treat all interested youth fairly, the Committee has set a special deadline to receive all applications for scholarships to the National Youth Event.

That deadline is Monday, February 15.

Applications should come from the Christian education ministry of each church; no applications from individual parishioners, please! Evidence of fundraising on the part of the young people who wish to travel is absolutely essential. Application forms and further instructions are available on the Maine UCC website.
