2017 Annual Gathering Packet Materials

2017 Annual Gathering Packet Materials


This year’s Annual Gathering will be held at Doane University, 1014 Boswell Avenue, Crete, Nebraska, on June 9 and 10, 2017.  The theme this year is "Imagining the Future:  Bringing Church to the 21st Century".  The Rev. John C. Dorhauer, author and theologian, who currently serves as ninth General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ, will be Keynoting.  This will be a weekend filled with unique workshops, informational meetings and displays, the Ordination Celebration Banquet, a Wine and Cheese Tasting Social Gathering, and the chance to, weather permitting, experience Doane University Campus, which should be quite beautiful.  Make sure you are a part of this uplifting and spiritual weekend by registering today!  All registrations should be received at the Nebraska Conference Office no later than May 22nd, 2017.


The items in the first set below are Annual Gathering Packet Materials, less the delegate/visitor voting card, name tag, etc., that has to be picked up at the Registration Desk, which will be in the Chab Weyers Education and Hixson Lied Art Building (No. 6 on the map).  The second set below are reference materials, and the link(s) are for your convenience.  NOTE:  Links will be "activated" as materials become available.  We encourage you to purchase Rev. Dorhauer's book Beyond Resistance:  The Institutional Church Meets the Postmodern World
