Approximately 25 children participate in our "New Beginnings" Sunday School.

 

In 2008, our congregation was proud to became the thirteenth "Open and Affirming" congregation in the state of New Hampshire welcoming all who come in search of God's presence in their lives. Our congregation is one of 27 New Hampshire congregational churches that celebrate their committement to "5 for 5" in their basic support of the United Church of Christ's wider mission and our denomination's four special mission offerings.


 

Our family of faith welcomes all to our church no matter where you are in their faith journey. We meet weekly on Sunday mornings for worship, though our church offers many opportunities during the week to gather for fun and volunteer opportunities. All are welcome.
