Christian Education & Youth Ministry

Christian Education

Do you want to be connected with people in other Maine Episcopal churches who do ministry with kids and teens?

1. Email your questions about and get support for Christian Formation to Emily Keniston, Diocesan Consultant for Christian Formation or call (207) 210-7500. Do you want to visit another church's Sunday School?  Or drive to visit other leaders?  We will reaimburse you for gas and coffee. Contact Emily.

2. Join the Christian Ed Collaboration. Start by joining the Christian Ed Collaboration Facebook Group.  This is one of the ways that people connect. The Christian Ed Collaboration is a network of people (laypeople and clergy, volunteers and employees) from Episcopal congregations all over Maine, who are dedicated to sharing resources and ideas.  We support and help one another.

2. Subscribe to the DioLog (our diocesan newsletter).  That's where to find notices of Christian Ed Collaboration meetings, Maine Episcopal Youth Events, continuing education opportunities, etc.

3. One of the best ways to connect with Episcopal Christian Ed leaders from all over the country and beyond is to join the FORMA facebook group
