Happy Thanksgiving

November 2023

Dear Friend,

A very special Thanksgiving. Greetings from the USCCA!

We bring you and your families our sincerest wishes for a happy, healthy, and blessed Thanksgiving! May the Lord bring you joy and peace as we prepare to begin the season of Advent. The USCCA is thankful for you and your steadfast support of the USCCA over the years.

As we begin this Advent season and prepare for Thanksgiving, the Board of Directors of the USCCA reflects upon the 35 years since its founding in 1989. We are grateful for the support of our friends, partners, and patrons.

We especially look forward to 2024, when the USCCA will celebrate its 35th anniversary at its 29th biennial conference in Chicago

  • on Friday, 2 August 2024 to Sunday, 4 August 2024

  • with our theme, "Our Hope is in Christ"

  • to be held at DePaul University Lincoln Park Campus, Chicago.

We hope many of you will join us in this extraordinary celebration.

We would like to share with you a letter from the Board with updates on USCCA and an invitation to continue your support.

May the Lord bless you and your family abundantly this Thanksgiving and beyond!

From all of us at the USCCA …
