Three Great Loves Initiative

The Three Great Loves initiative of the United Church of Christ is both invitational and inspirational. It invites us to share the impact we are making as we live out God’s love through the lens of Three Great Loves. It invites us to connect with each other and the wider church in transformative ways, inspiring and encouraging each other in our faithful work. And it invites us to share the inspiring and collective impact we are making as the hands and feet of God, making a more just world for all.

We all have a story. We are all part of God’s story. What’s your story? Please take part and share your story! If you have questions about the initiative, our PWC (Penn West Conference) contacts on it are Jill Marie (marieje@comcast.net) and Jim Neatrour (jabez1924@gmail.com).

Three Great Loves:

  • Love of Neighbor

  • Love of Children

  • Love of Creation
