What is GUCCI?
GUCCI stands for Granby United Church of Christ Interrelated. It is the name given to the group that is spearheading our current effort to explore a new future for Granby area UCC churches, particularly First Church and South Church. In May 2017 a group of eleven folks from each of our two churches met to identify core values of the two congregations, to do some visioning of what headlines might be for First and South Churches five years in the future, and to identify next steps. Shortly thereafter the Senior Ministers, Moderators and Assistant Moderators from both churches began meeting regularly to map out the process of exploring ways to increase collaboration between the two congregations and continue the dialogue about the potential for a shared future. In the spring of 2018 this group, working with the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, designed a survey which was distributed to all members of the two churches. Based on the feedback received from that survey and in response to the declining membership and financial support that both churches are experiencing, the church leaders agreed to explore more deeply the possibility of joining together as a new church entity. To assist with this effort, in the spring of 2019 the churches hired Rev. Dr. Claire Bamberg, an ordained minister and consultant who specializes in assisting churches in transition. The GUCCI group was expanded in late 2020 to include three additional at-large members from each congregation.
