welcome you into participation in the UCC Student Association at ANTS
and even provide you with food! Free! It just doesn't get much better
that that - Just RSVP below - Easy!

We've planned this time for you to network and make connections - an
especially important opportunity to get grounded if you're just
starting seminary. We'll also have resources and lots of information
about upcoming programming sponsored by the Massachusetts Conference of
the United Church of Christ to which you are all invited. Even if
you're from outside the Massachusetts Conference, we want to
connect with you while you're in the area - we look forward to
welcoming you all on September 13th!

Join us to say hello to friends new and old! Join us to find out the
first steps in becoming in-care with the United Church of Christ! Join
us to find out about the great events happening throughout the
Massachusetts Conference!

Blessings as you begin the school year,
