Christian Education and Formation

The Christian Education & Formation ministry in the New Hampshire Conference recognizes Christian Formation as a lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self and others. We seek to serve people of all ages, wherever they are on this journey, by offering resources and on-going opportunities that support developing a deeper understanding of the Bible, applying faith to everyday life, and growing in relationship.
