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.
Join us for a morning of worship and gathering with friends throughout the Missouri Mid-South Conference online!
"Doors" open at 9:30 a.m. so that you can enjoy fellowship time with each other. Worship will include a celebration of the churches and ministers observing significant anniversaries, an installation of the Conference Council, a litany of farewell for our departing Conference staff, a sermon and the sacrament of communion. This is an informal gathering and will not include Conference business.
Come as you are and let us worship together!
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Opportunities to give to the
Missouri Mid-South Conference
David W. Poe, the Pastor of St. Peter’s UCC, New Haven, Missouri, is giving away his current stock of original oil paintings to those who contribute to the Missouri Mid-South Conference. For a gift of at least $150 you will receive a 9x12 original oil painting and for a gift of at least $300 you will receive a 12x16 original oil painting (while supplies last).
The paintings are being donated 100% as a way of calling attention to the need to continue to support our Missouri Mid-South Conference with our financial gifts. Monies raised from this special promotion will be considered gifts to the Friends of the Conference Fund. David hopes this will inspire other UCC artists in our Conference to consider doing something similar in the months ahead to show our love and appreciation for the ministries of the Missouri Mid-South Conference.
Purchases can be made by accessing the Missouri Mid-South Conference donation site and selecting the category of ‘ART SALE BENEFIT’ at the bottom of the list of available donations. Once you have made your donation, please send an email to David Poe at email@example.com advising him of your top 3 painting choices and the address you would like the painting sent to and he will mail you your painting. Gifts of at least $150 will receive a 9x12 painting. Gifts of at least $300 will receive a 12x16 painting until inventory is depleted.
The paintings can be viewed on David’s website at www.davidwesleypoe.com. A few samples of David’s work are shown here.
