Thank you from Pastor Kristy:

I am back in the office officially this week, after two weeks of medical leave and three of working remotely.  I cannot tell you how wonderful it feels to drive across the city and pull up at the church to work with and in this community that I so dearly love.

I want to thank you for the myriad of blessings that came to me during my time apart.  While I have been prayed-for many times and in many situations, this time was different--I literally felt drenched in prayer from before the procedure through my recovery.  I have never experienced anything like it before!  Thank you for praying for me!

In addition, thank you for the calls, emails, cards, text messages and social media check-ins, the flowers, the food and the expressions of care.  I deeply appreciate all of it, and am so happy to be back with you again. 

Grace and Peace, Pastor Kristy

Please also take some time to visit our small library in the Vestry and see if you are interested in taking one home or sharing with someone.

On Saturday, June 24th, the United Methodist Men will host their 21st Annual Golf

Scramble & Fundraiser at Amherst Country Club. This is our major fundraiser of the year and provides money to fund Scholarships for our Youth to Wanakee Summer

Camp, Snow Removal from church facilities, and other maintenance and replacements that are not in our church annual budget.

Since the tournament is only TWO weeks away, we encourage church members and friends to support this fundraiser in one of several ways:

  1. Register to play golf or host a foursome for the tournament if you aren't a golfer.

  2. Purchase Hole Sponsorships for your business or family.

  3. Or simply donate some money to support the tournament and our fundraising causes.


  • Playing golf is $75/player or $300/foursome; includes golf cart.

  • Family/Personal Hole Sponsorship $50

  • Corporate/Business Hole Sponsorship $75.

    • We will create signs to place on one of the 18 Tees:

      • Your family name and/or a message can be placed on your sign.

      • Your business logo/business information can be placed on your sign.

Trophies will be awarded to the winners of the tournament and there will be

prizes or gifts for each foursome who participates. This day has always been a great

way to enjoy fun and fellowship for all who participate and ALL are welcome.

Please contact Mark Morissey, 603-244-0738, Kent Swanson, 603-880-6289, or

the church office, 603-882-3361 to participate and forward your money to Paul

Curtis at the church office as soon as possible. We really need your

participation to make this event successful. God Bless You and thank you for

your support!

Summer keynote event: The Seven Deadly Sins of White Christian Nationalism: A Call to Action.

At Unitarian Universalist Church, Concord, NH

We are SO excited to welcome the Rev. Dr. Carter Hayward to New Hampshire on August 29th. In a time of rising hate activity across our state, Rev. Dr. Heyward is going to talk with us about her book, the Seven Deadly Sins of White Christian Nationalism. Together, we will learn about action steps we can take in our own churches and communities as we grow our muscles in this work together. 

There will be opportunity to spend time together in both small and large groups, and to connect with other voices of faith from across the state who are also interested in doing this work. Registration, and more details about our book group accompanying this event coming next week!

Thanks to our partners at the NH Conference of the UCC, and Episcopal Diocese of NH who are working with us. We hope you will save-the-date, and join us.
