Outdoor Ministries

Outdoor Ministries are the programs that are offered though the New Hampshire Conference Outdoor Ministry Board. While many of these programs take place at our site (Horton Center), they also can and do occur at many different sites. Each of these programs is planned, run and evaluated by both seasonal staff and year round staff and volunteers. The mission of our Outdoor Ministry program is to invite all God's children to experience Christian community in the natural world.

Horton Center is the Outdoor Ministry site owned and operated by the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ. Horton Center is a seasonal site, located on Pine Mountain in the Northern part of the White Mountains, just outside Gorham, NH. During the summer months, we operate a program for children, youth and families. In the non-summer, warmer months (May- June and Aug - October) the facility is available to rent for church groups, colleges, schools, or other groups whose mission is in line with our mission.

Horton Center Sunday - February 27, 2022

Remember February 27th is our 'official' Horton Center Sunday so look for online materials 2 weeks before to use in your Sunday worship that day (or a different Sunday if that one doesn't work). The theme for the day is: "Going Out on a Ledge"! Your church can either use parts of the Horton Center worship in your regular worship, or use the whole thing as your worship, your choice!

Materials will be available at: www.hortoncenter.org
