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.
Lenten Medical Debt Relief Initiative
In our latest Ginny's Gems video, MMS Conference Minister Rev. Dr. Ginny Brown Daniel shares her love for
Ash Wednesday and invites us all to a spiritual practice of reflecting on our health and wholeness made in God’s image with a medical debt relief initiative with the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference.
During Lent, we reflect on how we are created in God’s image and the places where we can grow into God’s image in our lives. During Lent, I invite you to a spiritual practice of reflecting on our health and wholeness made in God’s image with a medical debt relief initiative with the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference. As we kick off our co-hosting responsibilities, we wanted to ground our work together with service to our community neighbors. Therefore, both conferences will collect money for a medical debt initiative for 4 regions in each conference. The Conference Council will decide which regions they will be for the Missouri Mid-South Conference. This will include a balance of rural and urban settings. Our priority will be to find the poorest areas of our Conference so that we can help the most people. May God’s grace and mercy inspire our generosity for our neighbors in Arkansas, Memphis, and Missouri!
