The mission of Outdoor Ministries in the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ is to invite all God’s children to experience Christian community in the natural world
The Outdoor Ministries programs, as part of the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ, helps to fulfill the mission of the Conference by offering programs for youth, adults and families where people can experience the love of God, through our work, worship, praying and playing with other members of the United Church of Christ Congregations and those of other denominations and groups. All outdoor ministry programs are open to all who wish to experience this joy.
Horton Center is located outside of Gorham, NH, on 100 acres covering the top of 2,400 foot tall Pine Mountain. We offer programs that may include hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, intermixed with reminders of God´s presence and activity in our lives. We find the presence of God in the beauty and inspiration of the natural world, in community, in scripture, prayer, and within one another.
THE MISSION of the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ is to worship, work, and pray with the congregations of our Conference and with mission partners in our denomination and throughout the world, so that together we practice the love of Jesus Christ.
OUR VISION is a world that seeks compassion, justice and peace for all people, a faith that celebrates the Holy Spirit as the source of joy, growth and healing, and a church that offers to all a dwelling place with God and for God.
