The UCC Disaster Ministries and SWC Conference Disaster Ministries stand ready to support and assist your congregations and your communities in time of disaster.

I can tell you all the grand and challenging resolutions we tackled, all the breathtakingly inspiring worship and sermons from great speakers we heard, all the information from a denomination hard at work we received.

Our three Great Loves – Love of Children, Love of Neighbor, Love of Creation.
Active and retired clergy, specialized ministers, parish ministers, and members in discernment are invited to attend the SWC Annual Clergy Retreat held at the beautiful Redemptorist Renewal Center in Tucson, October 30 - November 1.
