Southwest Conference
Annual Meeting

April 17-18, 2015

The Church of the Red Rocks
Sedona, Arizona

Greetings, Members of the Southwest Conference UCC!

The Annual Meeting is a wonderful opportunity to lay aside our crazy busy lives and reflect on who the Holy Spirit is calling us to be. It’s an exciting time for exploration of, communication about, and pride in the work that our churches are doing each and every day. Each of our congregations is special on its own, but together we affirm our strength and interdependence as we lift our voices on behalf of the conference.

Last year’s meeting in Phoenix focused on extravagant welcome and culminated in a vote supporting marriage equality that was prophetic as Arizona became among the many marriage equality states last October! This year’s theme is ‘Restoring Creation’ and the Southwest Conference is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Sedona, Arizona, seems an absolutely perfect setting for this gathering!

As Southwest Conference Moderator, I invite each and every one of you to attend this Annual Meeting! Come, meet new friends and reconnect with old ones through worship, educational sessions, meetings, meals, and fellowship! I look forward to seeing you there!
