At our Fall 2015 Assembly, the Conference passed the Faith and Life Church Together Statement, calling for the formation of the Faith and Life Commission with the purpose of providing space for pastors and credentialed leaders within Franconia Conference to study scripture with one another. This October, the Faith and Life Commission will host four gatherings on different dates and times, including one online. The meetings being planned are for the purpose of establishing and supporting relationships among pastors and credentialed leaders and building ties of friendship and support. Please register below.
