WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE MOST TO CHURCH GROWTH? The effect of the degree of involvement from church members can have a dramatic impact on church growth. In fact, when 90 percent of church members become committed and involved in a church growth plan, the effect can be profound.

So, we are hoping that a significant number of our members will take a more involved role in church growth. In the following weeks and months, we will provide suggestions and plans that you can embrace without getting out of your “comfort zone” to help create growth for UCC.

Church Growth Committee members are: Linda Burnside, Gary and Karen Nye, Jonnie Rhea, Mark Stoskopf, Connie Buckley, Mike and Anne McCoy, Pat Snyder, and Robin McGonigle. Any of these committee members can answer any questions you have or discuss how you can help.

PLEASE JOIN the Lieurance Woodwind Quintet from Wichita State University for a special performance at University Congregational Church on Sunday, May 6, at 3:00pm, in the sanctuary.
