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.
Our regular Sunday morning worship is 10-11 AM. From September to June, services are held at the Etna Baptist church.
During July and August, services are held at the Hanover Center Congregational church on the Hanover Center green.
