Four UCC clergy from the Missouri Mid-South Conference are plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the State of Missouri, with the help of Americans United for Separation of Church & State and the National Women’s Law Center. They argue that the State’s ban on abortion access infringes on their religious freedom, and violates the separation of church and state.

In early 2022, the Missouri Mid-South Conference announced that our churches and members have forgiven an additional $3.9 million in medical debt, impacting 2,950 households across Arkansas and Tennessee.

We are the only UCC Conference to have pursued a second campaign for medical debt relief. In 2020, the Missouri Mid-South Conference partnered with the Deaconess Foundation and the national setting of the UCC to abolish $12.9 million in debt for 11,000 households in the St. Louis area.

This second campaign sought to focus on debt relief in struggling rural areas across our three states. At the time of our purchase, no debt was available in the State of Missouri.
