These facilitators were members of a
task force that studied contemporary controversies and then put forward six
written proposals on “Singleness,” “Marriage,”
“Pornography,” “Illicit Sexual Relations,” “Sex and Gender Distinctions,” and “The Local Congregation and Human Sexuality.” At a time when many Christian groups are fracturing over such issues, these six proposals were each adopted with a unanimous vote, strengthening the unity of the denomination. In this workshop, the focus is not on that particular denomination, nor on those specific issues, nor on any specific positions. The thrust of this workshop is on the process of developing group
consensus on controversial issues in a
way that keeps us faithful to Scripture and strengthens our unity.
Hear an academic dean, a Christian
attorney, and a seminary resident share their experience of leading their denomination
through such controversies in a way that resulted in a business session that
ended with a spontaneous standing ovation.
This three-hour workshop is free of
charge, but seating is limited, and registration is required.

It is the time of year when we update our records with current information regarding your church membership to the United Brethren Association and your subscriber information. This process is necessary as it creates the opportunity to have the most accurate information on file.
These forms have been mailed to the church with January’s invoices. Below are the links to both forms. Please complete the church profile form and return it to the UB Association office. Please notice that it is necessary to identify a voting delegate from your church to participate in the annual meetings on the first Sunday evening of each November. This voting delegate may not be an employee that is a current participant in any of the insurance products because subscribers have an individual vote during the annual session.
Please copy or complete a subscriber profile for all employees that are subscribers to any insurance products.
If a subscriber is enrolled in life insurance, AD&D insurance and/or LTD or STD insurance, you must complete the salary information line. Remember that the salary line should include the value of the declared housing allowance.

Also, please review your invoice(s) thoroughly to ensure that the plan choice and age of member is correctly reflected on each invoice. If any changes/corrections need to be made, please contact our office immediately.
All HSA contributions listed on the January invoice, reflect contribution amounts on record. If there are any changes needed to those contribution amounts, please indicate the change on the invoice before mailing invoice and payment to the UB Association Office. Please also indicate the contribution plans on the subscriber profile form.
