What's New, and What's Brief
HARTFORD (01/06/2015) -- The Connecticut Conference has released the 2015 edition of the Primer for Resolutions and Affirmations, which specifies the process for bringing issues of theological, ethical, or social concern to the Conference for consideration.
Approved by the Board of Directors at their December meeting, the primer sets a deadline of May 1, 2015, for "Group A" resolutions to be submitted. The measures may be proposed by local churches, associations, a group of fifteen delegates, or a Conference Ministry Team.
"Group B" resolutions, which should be in response to a compelling or urgent concern, must be submitted by October 1, 2015.

HARTFORD (12/03/2014) -- The Disabilities Ministries Team of the Connecticut Conference is looking for potential new team members who are passionate about making our churches and congregations more aware and understanding of the needs of people with disabilities.
The Disability Ministries Team works to promote the UCC "Accessible to All" initiative, a program which uses study, reflection and prayer to prepare our local churches for extending God's extravagant welcome to people with disabilities.
Team members should have some experience with disability, whether personally or through family and friends. Please submit recommendations to Jacky Schofield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
