We're glad you've decided to find out more about our Faith Formation program.  Please join us on Sunday morning or for one of our special events scheduled throughout the year.  Whether it's an intergenerational worship service or a traditional Christmas pageant, there's a place for you at the Congregational Church of Laconia. 

Faith Formation begins in mid-September with Rally Sunday and ends in late May or early June.  Each Sunday morning, Bible stories are read and discussed and children engage in a variety of activities including music, arts & crafts and games.  Throughout the summer months younger children are invited to the nursery for supervised playtime.  Older children are encouraged to remain in the sanctuary for the full worship service. 


Families worship together in the church sanctuary beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.  The first 15 - 20 minute of the worship service includes an organ prelude, choral introit, morning announcements, singing of a hymn and "Time with God's Children" (a short message).  Following the message, children and their parents are directed to leave the church and walk to the Parish Hall for Church School.  Parents return to the worship service which concludes between 10:15 and 10:30 a.m.   Parents are expected to pick up their children from their classrooms. 

All are invited to coffee hour in Fellowship Hall (lower level of the church building) following the worship service.
We hope you can join us on Sunday morning!


The Congregational Church of Laconia is a big place!  All classes meet in the Parish Hall located across the driveway from the church building (brown 2-story structure).  The high school class meets on the first floor in the Youth Room.  All other classes meet on the second floor.  There are people and signs to help you find your way. 
Church School Superintendent:  Diane Tinkham
