The 2018 Conference Annual Gathering Planning Team led by co-Chairs Rev. Rick Oberle and Jane Porchey is excited to announce that 2018 CAG registration is now live!  2018 CAG will take place at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO, Thursday, June 7th - Saturday, June 9th.

This years theme, "3 Great Loves: Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, & Love of Creation" is rooted in scripture, 1 John 4:11.


The origin of this year's theme comes from the national setting of the United Church of Christ, who has a vision of a just world for all. In this world all are welcomed, everyone is loved and justice is inherent. The 3 Great Loves is the denomination’s opportunity to express how our Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, and Love of Creation work together to address the inequities in our current world.

We have an exciting three day's scheduled featuring keynotes from the UCC General Minister and President, Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer.  We will also feature MMSC covenanted ministry teams through various workshops to highlight the very important work and ministry that is taking place throughout the Missouri Mid-South Conference.  


This year MMSC will offer two continuing education workshops the day before CAG
