Faith Formation

Today's church is an evolving community.  The building that houses the community may be traditional, but what happens within and without vital congregations throughout our state is ministry and mission for the 21st century.

There is a constant flow of information from valuable sources concerning the priorities, strategies and contexts for effective faith formation.  Even our language has changed to reflect a holistic and lifelong approach.  As one national educator said, "This isn't your grandmother's Sunday school!" 

The CT Conference United Church of Christ serves the members of local congregations seeking to develop leadership skills and deepen vitality within their ministry.  The resources on the Faith Formation pages of our website reflect the thinking of practitioners and partners who offer experience, knowledge and resources as we support one another, achieving greater interdependence.

Welcome to our faith formation pages where tools, tips and ideas are just the beginning of a library of resources available to all.
