April/May issue of Celebrate Florida

In the following, the LUCC Ash Wednesday service gets top billing with a stunning photo taken by Yoko Nogami.


Greetings, Florida UCC:

Here are the links to the April/May issue of Celebrate Florida. You will find two versions of this document; one is the standard PDF, and the other is the interactive version, which requires that your computer has a Flash player.

Standard version | Interactive version

Please set aside some time to read about what has been taking place or will be happening among the brothers and sisters in our larger church family. We are in covenant with one another, and one way to demonstrate our caring is through this sharing.

As always, this issue is full of great ideas to inspire ministries in your congregation. Here is some of what is inside this edition:

  • How our churches observed Ash Wednesday and Lent (and Mardi Gras!)
  • Plans for 3 Great Loves
  • Coalition of Immokalee Workers Fair Food rally in Gainesville
  • UCC responses to the New Zealand shootings and the debate within the United Methodist Church
  • Unique ministries
  • Noted scholar appearances
  • General Synod is coming!
  • Church policies on sexual harassment, bullying and abuse

Thanks to all those churches that share information about what has been happening in their congregations. Please make sure we’re on your mailing list, either electronic (celebrateflorida@uccfla.org) or hard copy. Yes, we do want to know what you are doing — there is always room for more good news

We especially appreciate your providing the Celebrate Florida link information to church members via your Sunday bulletin, newsletters, e-communications and on your website. Please help spread all the good news about the United Church of Christ in Florida among your church members.

May this Easter season bestow you with blessings of love and peace.

Rick Carson
