Announcements and Upcoming Events

 Original Church building late 1800s

 Current Church Building late 1800's

Saturday February 9, 2019  10:30 AM.   We welcome the NH chapter of the American Guild of Organists for their February Program.   This program features our Faucher Pipe Organ with it's state of the art console that incorporates digital technology.   
Laura Belanger, creator of "Organ Symphony Assistant", will lead a workshop on how we can all be inspired to study, practice and even perform the oft-neglected music for organ and orchestra. Laura has created an amazing collection of orchestra-only audio files of both known and not-so-well known organ and orchestra repertoire from the 18th-20th century. "Organ Symphony Assistant" supplies the orchestra part; you supply the organ part!
In addition to her demonstration, Laura will be looking for volunteers who would like to give Organ Symphony Assistant a try. If you are interested, please visit the OSA pages on her website, HTTPS:// . Pick a piece or one movement from the OSA collection, email Laura ( ) and she will send you the corresponding audio file along with more details. The OSA website also provides links to the organ sheet music, most free from the IMSLP website.


There are several positions open for 2018 volunteers. When becoming church members we agree to support our church with our time and talents. The more people who volunteer for church positions the easier the work load is. Please speak with the minister or Karen Lindsay if you are interested in serving on a committee.



Fellowship Hour:

Please consider signing up for Fellowship Hour.  In can either be for between services and/or after 10 a.m. Worship Service!  Starting in March, Birthday Fellowship will be between services and again following the 10 a.m. Worship Service.  Please join us in celebrating each other’s birthdays each month.  This birthday celebration will happen on the First Sunday of each month, but there are other Sundays available for you to host a fellowship hour.  This is a good opportunity to enjoy fellowship time after service.
