Faith Formation Walks the WOW Trail
The UCC is calling on all our congregations to join in an initiative called the "3 GREAT LOVES". It's about engaging the UCC Churches to take action and show the impact of working together for A JUST WORLD FOR ALL!! We need your energy and vision of what is A JUST WORLD FOR ALL!!
On September 23 we went on a Nature Walk on the WOW trail during Faith Formation.  We expressed our LOVE OF CREATION by identifying wonders of nature as we walked and did a scavenger hunt as well as picked up trash.
In the months to come we'll be engaged in activities for 
LOVE OF NEIGHBOR and LOVE OF CHILDREN as we love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and our neighbor as ourselves.




Faith Formation 
 
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. 
 


OVERVIEW
 
 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.  
 


SUNDAY MORNING SCHEDULE

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 across the "Faith Bridge" to the Parish Hall for Faith Formation.  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!


CLASSES AND TEACHERS
 
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.
