Why this Gathering is important for you and your church

National ONA Gathering is the signature annual event for the UCC’s nationwide ONA movement. With inspiring worship and music, unforgettable preaching, informative workshops, and opportunities for rest and play, an ONA Gathering is an opportunity to renew your congregation’s passion for ONA ministry, mission, evangelism and advocacy. We’ll meet just five months after the inauguration of President Trump, so this Gathering will equip your church to respond effectively to new challenges both locally and nationally.
