Welcome to the Missouri

Mid-South Conference

The Missouri Mid-South Conference is the collection of 139 local congregations in the United Church of Christ denomination.  We cover the geographic region of Missouri, Arkansas, and Memphis, TN.  Within these congregations are more than 48,500 members.​ 

The United Church of Christ is just that — a united church —  which means our 5,287 churches across the country are as diverse as the country as a whole, and we encompass a broad spectrum of beliefs, values and worldviews under the umbrella of a united church. To manage our many autonomous congregations, the UCC is divided into 38 conferences.

Stole Project


The MMS Conference Stole Project needs your help!

We are looking for people to either make or donate stoles for Conference Staff to give to our clergy who become ordained or installed in new church settings. When presented to the clergy, these stoles represent our collective prayers, support and blessings for each pastor as they wear them for worship, public protest and being alongside of those who are transitioning through death. We have been blessed over the years by all who have stepped up to make this project a success. If you are able and willing to make or donate a stole, please contact the Conference Office for more information.  A stole pattern is available for download here or to be mailed or emailed to those who wish to make a stole for donation. You can select a fabric or collection of fabrics to make the stole and send or bring it to the Conference Office when it is finished.


Whether handmade or a donation of an existing stole, we love to know who made them and which church you are part of so that we can share that story when we present them as gifts to clergy, so please include that information with your donation!  Thank you!


May We All Be One through our efforts of love and support.
