From the Association Pastor:

May you experience and share God’s Love in new and deeper ways ……………………
Do you ever sing to God and imagine Him singing to you???

No matter what is going on in your life today, take the time to sing to our Lord and bless His name.

More Than Anything
(Song by Lamar Campbell)

I lift my hands in total adoration unto You
You reign on the throne
For You are God and God alone
Because of You my cloudy days are gone
I can sing to You this song
I just want to say that I love You more than anything…

I love You Jesus
I worship and adore You
Just want to tell You
Lord, I love You more than anything

Seeing God in Everything…Sing His praises,

Rev. Patricia E. H. Battle
Servant of God

Covenantal Elders

Greetings from your Covenantal Elders.

Due to health concerns our Elders positions and assignments are in flux. We are currently seeking interested folks to join a training class. Qualifications for an Elder are: Love of Jesus Christ and his church, active involvement in a UCC congregation in CSEOA, spiritual maturity, experience with the wider UCC church, ability to listen and report joys and concerns of congregations to association leadership, team players who can link needs and talents, articulate about the association and the role of an Elder. We need both lay and Authorized persons as Elders.

Covenantal Elders are committed to:

  • Contacting your assigned churches monthly via email, text or phone
  • Visiting each of your churches quarterly (worship, social event, meeting, …..)
  • Praying for your congregations and their leadership

Reminding congregations about association meetings and events and the covenantal relationship we all have:

  • Gathering information about the mission, gifts and challenges of each congregation and its leadership and reporting these to the association
  • Monthly written reports of your activities in your role as Elder
  • Attend training meetings and organizational gatherings

Please prayerfully consider your calling to serve and contact Rev. Linda with interest.

Imagining a Different Conference

You are invited to help the Conference Vision Team! Recently, a team of 15 representatives from Associations and Conference forwarded a report to the Board of Directors. That report imagined different ways to shape the Ohio Conference and its Associations.

The Vision Team declared to the Board of Directors that we need to become “one nimble and responsible judicatory that is faithful in mission and responsible in stewardship.” The Board agreed. And that’s where you come in.
