WELCOME to the online registration page for the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Michigan Conference UCC. We have a special event planned and we're excited to share all of the details with you!

The theme of this year's Annual Meeting is:  Rejoice! Living Your Passion
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice."  Philippians 4:4

We have two (2) wonderful host church's this year; St. Stephen's Community Church, UCC and First Christian Church - both located in Lansing - and very close walking distance between the two.

Parking:  There is ample parking at both locations.

We are changing our format and doing things a little differently this year. This year's events will begin FRIDAY EVENING, October 13th - with the Friday Night Award Banquet.  The evenings festivities include a wonderful dinner buffet, the introduction of new Authorized Ministers, the recognition of Retired Clergy, Open and Affirming congregations, OCWM "Thank You", special awards and grants, and the presentation of this year's recipient of the Murdale Leysath Award.
The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. and will be held at the Old Town Marquee, located at 319 E. Grand River Avenue, Lansing.

Saturday, October 14th - we will gather at St. Stephen's Community Church, UCC, located at 1007 Kimberly Drive, Lansing. The morning will begin with worship. Lunch will be served at First Christian Church, located at 1001 Chester Road, Lansing. The afternoon will bring workshops (at both St. Stephen's and First Christian), Plenary #2, Budget presentation, Resolutions and the Friends of the Conference kick-off.
