The Southern New England Conference announces its classes for the 2021-2022 program year of the Faith Formation Leadership Program.

This year’s excellent slate of instructors will teach the various faith formation and youth ministry classes, and address adaptations for faith formation and youth ministries in these (post-)pandemic times.

The two sessions offered for each class are identical other than that the first is offered via Zoom and the second will be offered on-site at Hadwen Park Congregational Church UCC in Worcester, MA. Each class session is from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
