OUTREACH PROJECT – for Gammon School Supply Closet begins today.  For the second year, our Gammon partnership is focused on increasing availability of high-demand supplies for classrooms, teachers, and individual students from families with economic challenges.  Over the next four weeks, we invite you to contribute dollars toward the Gammon School Supply Closet.  One of the most socially- and culturally- diverse public schools in Wichita, Gammon is located two miles northwest of UCC.  During the past year, supplies purchased by our dollars were used before the year ended, so we’ve targeted our 2018 goal to $5,000!  You may leave a check at the Outreach table in fellowship fall or mail it to the church office.

PLEASE JOIN US on September 28-29 at University Congregational Church for the Richard Greene Lecture Series – Jesus Seminar on the Road: The Political Jesus led by Arthur J. Dewey and Celene Lillie

The Jesus of history resisted the political and social realities of his day. Early Christians did the same. Neither one was necessarily successful in their aims, but what do we know about their attitudes toward the economy, immigrants, and war? How did Jesus and emerging Christ communities express concerns for justice and peace? Looking at the world today, what would they say about American politics?
