Ministry of Christian Education

Ministry of Christian Education Mission Statement

 

The Ministry of Christian Education at Colchester Federated Church celebrates all people as children of God embarking on their own faith journeys. We strive to offer safe and comfortable Christian experiences for everyone at all stages of development to experience God by connecting real faith to real life through the messages of the Bible. 

We work to provide resources and support that help all members of our congregation to grow in their faith. 

Guiding us in our mission are our core values:

 

Embracing diversities of faith and life;

Worshiping  and learning together;

Growing  in our relationship with God;

Growing  in our relationship with each other;

Making a connection between church and home;

And relying upon our faith in dealing with the challenges of everyday life.

 

The Ministry of Education consists of six members plus a Chair and Vice-chair, including UCC, ABC, and whenever possible, Federated members. It has general oversight of the entire field of Christian Education and shall advise and coordinate the various groups under it. Responsibilities of the ministry include Adult Christian Education, Christian Education for children and youth, Discipleship Classes, and Youth Ministry. The ministry also consults with other ministries on their educational programs.  Our Director of Christian Education is Nicole Hosford.  Feel free to reach out to Nicole with any questions you may have!

Discipleship Class

We offer a Discipleship Class every other year that helps our high school students explore their Christian faith as they journey to become adult members of our congregation.  We meet twice a month on Monday evenings and have special events throughout the year including service opportunities and retreats.  The class is led by our Pastor and Christian Education Director, and we're fortunate to have mentors from within our congregation who work with our students as well.
