Covenantal Partners

As a United Church of Christ (UCC), Faith UCC has covenantal partnerships with the various settings of the church.

We are covenantal partners with other regional UCC churches and Disciples of Christ churches in the Western Area Churches in Covenant. This partnership enables us to share resources, meet together as faith communities, and explore our faith with other residents of Western New York.

Faith UCC is also in covenant with our conference, the New York Conference of the United Church of Christ (www.uccny.org) with offices located in Syracuse. The New York Conference provides staff, resources, and communication support. The New York Conference meets annually with delegates, clergy, and visitors, for workshops, worship, election of officers, budget approval, and the study and exploration of social issues.

Our national covenantal partner is the UCC (www.ucc.org) based in Cleveland, Ohio. Through the national office we receive spiritual and informational resources, support for local and global missions, support for local church development, and an ongoing relationship with the larger church. The national church meets biennially for workshops, worship, elections of officers, budget approval, and the study and passage of resolutions.
