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 over 48,500 members.​ 

 

The United Church of Christ is just that—a united church. That 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.

Second Round of MMS Pandemic Microgrants

Deadline: Sunday, November 15th

 

This past summer, the Missouri Mid-South Conference established a COVID-19 microgrant fund in the amount of fifty-five thousand dollars ($55,000).

 

The purpose of this grant is to allow our congregations to dream and discern ways and opportunities to improve and enhance ministry within their congregations and community. The grant committee, consisting of clergy and laity from various parts of the conference determined that we would not name specifics of how, or what the funds would be use. Rather, we invite you to dream and vision how these funds would best be used for each ministry context.

Listed here are suggestions from the committee as to how the grant could be used; Hardware: iPad, Ring Light, Microphones, Cameras for Livestreaming, Computer Upgrades, Ring Security Devices; Subscriptions: Zoom, Canva Pro; Continuing education; Festival of Homiletics on demand; Upgrades: Websites, Online Donation Portals, Music Licensing for Online Streaming.

 

The initial amount of the grants being offered is five hundred dollars ($500) per congregation

 

The week of 10/26/2020, the COVID-19 Microgrant Committee met to recommend a second round of grants be offered in the following priority:

  1. Congregations that did not apply in the first round

  2. Chaplains/ministers serving in specialized settings, and are in good standing with the Missouri Mid-South Conference of the United Church of Christ (to be used for ministry expenses);

 

Please note, the deadline for this second round is Sunday November 15,2020.
