First Church is a family oriented, spiritually based congregation, who care deeply for its members as well as members of the surrounding town communities.
Our world and community is ever-changing. We are learning and growing as we explore new ways to experience God's love and to share that love with each person we meet.
Worship Service takes place Sunday mornings at 10am, followed by community sharing for all ages.
Sunday School Faith Formation Classes serving children pre-school through 8th grade run from September through June. Summer Faith Formation is based in the worship service through hymns, prayer and sharing the stories of our faith with each other.
"Keep loving each other like family. Don't neglect to open up your homes to guests, because by doing this some have been hosts to angels without knowing it."
[Hebrews 13: 1-2, Common English Bible]
God has called us together as a community to demonstrate kindness and love to all of God's people.
We gather in worship weekly to renew our relationship with God and with each other as a church family. Our excellent music program is an essential part of our worship service, whether hymns and service music played with joy and mastery by our Organist, anthems sung by our Chancel Choir or played by the Handbell Choir, or pieces presented by choral or instrumental ensembles and soloists. The stories of our faith come alive to us in sermons and other presentations, helping us to see how timeless lessons resonate in the 21st century. We leave worship prepared to love and serve God in all that we do during the week.
We make it our mission to respond to the needs of those close by in the Mount Washington Valley, those further away in New Hampshire and throughout the United States, and those who may be half a world away.
