No matter who you are, who you love,
how you identify yourself, or where you are on life’s journey,
you are welcome EVERYWHERE
in the Central Pacific Conference.
Save the Date: Portland Pride – June 17 & 18
All churches of the Central Pacific Conference are invited to march in the Parade on Sunday, June 18th. We also invite you to help staff our booth at the Festival on the 17th and 18th. A sign-up link to volunteer will be available in May. Also watch for a Facebook Event Invitation.
Our presence at the festival will be more important than ever this year as we demonstrate that love conquers hate!
We have registered to have 2 vehicles in the parade for folks unable to walk the route. Would you like to drive your vehicle in the parade? Do you have great ideas for costumes or decorations for our marchers? If so, please contact Karen Kulm at firstname.lastname@example.org.

UCC General Synod, June 30 – July 4, Baltimore MD
Every two years, General Synod brings together thousands of faithful members of the United Church of Christ for formal church witness, inspirational worship, and fellowship with friends (new and old). In June 2017, thousands from across the country (and abroad) will gather for General Synod 2017 in Baltimore, Maryland. Together, we will discern resolutions of witness, church structure, and function. We will stand up for issues that demand a faithful witness. And we will join together in worship each day to lift up the Stillspeaking God. At General Synod 2017, we will “Make Glad!” as we celebrate, debate, worship and witness.
Delegates from around the CPC are sent to represent our conference at each General Synod. To learn more about this year’s General Synod, click HERE or on the image above.
Purpose, Mission & Vision of the United Church of Christ
The Central Pacific Conference is the community of United Church of Christ congregations in Oregon, southern Idaho and southern Washington. We are multiracial and multicultural, open and affirming, and accessible to all.
In this family of 45 congregations our shared commitment is to ministry and mission. The CPC provides spiritual and material resources and encouragement to all our nearly 7,600 members. We put purposes and programs into action by drawing on the experience and talents of all the conference’s members, both lay people and clergy.
The CPC assists and encourages local congregations and their members in working together to explore, communicate, support and pursue the ministry and mission of the church, and provides a channel for effective relationships with the UCC and with other faith communities.
The Central Pacific Conference of the United Church of Christ is one of 39 regional conferences in the 1.5 million member United Church of Christ, a “united and uniting” Protestant denomination in the United States of America.
