Welcome to the Penn Northeast Conference



The United Church of Christ seeks to be:

  • united and uniting church
  • multiracial and multicultural church
  • church accessible to all
  • open and affirming church
  • peace with justice church


We are a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions: from the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree to live together in communion. Our motto—"that they may all be one"—is Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church. The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian churches in the United States.   


No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.   

General Synod Delegate Nominations Wanted


At this year's Penn Northeast Conference Annual Meeting, we will be electing delegates for the 2017 and 2019 General Synods.  We need lay delegates, ordained delegates, youth delegates (anyone under 30), female delegates, and male delegates.  The next General Synod meeting will be in Baltimore, Maryland, June 30th till July 4th of 2017.  Anyone wishing to nominate someone please submit their names to the PNEC Nominating Committee via Barbara Jennings (  If you are nominating someone other than yourself, please make sure you have contacted that person and secured their permission.  Self-nominations are fine and encouraged.  If you have never attended a General synod meeting, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the depth, breadth, and diversity of the United Church of Christ.
