A warm welcome to our community church
We are a kind, caring, small rural Christian community located in the villages of Etna and Hanover Center, New Hampshire. Our "yoked" single congregation includes members from the American Baptist Church, the United Church of Christ, and a range of other Christian backgrounds.
Our regular 10 AM Sunday worship service follows Protestant traditions and includes Nursery and Sunday school for elementary/middle/high school children and a post-service coffee/fellowship time.
Weekly announcements and upcoming events:
*Souper Bowl Sunday was a success!!! We donated 144 cans of soup to the Haven.
*The ANNUAL MEETINGS for both our churches are coming up soon: First Baptist Annual meeting is following worship Sunday March 3 and the First Congregational Church Annual meeting is after worship on Sunday March 10. Please send your committee updates for the annual reports.
