You are welcome here!
The Eastern Association of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ welcomes you! Try saying that five times fast! Our association is made up of 37 local churches from Santa Ana in Orange County all the way to Las Vegas including most of the Inland Empire. Our task is to support the local churches in our region and to grow our collective impact to make our world more just.
What does the Association do?
One of the biggest ways we support our local churches is through the work of our Committee on Church and Ministry, often called a Committee on Ministry in other parts of the United Church of Christ. Section A of the Committee has the responsibility of discerning with those considering ordained ministry or serving as a minister in the United Church of Christ as well as discerning with local churches considering covenanting with (becoming a local church in) the United Church of Christ. Section B is responsible for oversight of ministers and local churches and maintaining connection and relationship with them. Section N is responsible for all of these duties in Southern Nevada.
Our Association gathers biannually in the Spring and Fall for a time of required business, worship, fellowship, and growth.
