Ministry Groups


Christian Education and Evangelism
Chair, Melanie Baillargeon
Community Ministry
Chair, Barbara Hazzard
Our Sunday School program uses contemporary materials. Our youth often engage in activities with other UCC churches. Adult education includes Wednesday evening discussions led by the pastor or guest speakers. We seek new friends! Join us for theological discussion and personal sharing. We are committed to our role as an active and vital Christian presence supporting the community. Our church members work closely with the pastor to make sure that we support not only our members but others in the community with prayers, emotional support, and other help when needed.


Public Worship
Chair, Bonnie Gardner

Missions

Chair, Liz Zarick
This Ministry Group plans our worship experiences, and involves the congregation in services. Our pastor, Rev. Robert Fellows, takes preaching seriously and provides messages that are grounded in Biblical Scripture and applied to contemporary concerns. Paul Merrill, our Music Director, is a gifted organist and is working with singers at all levels to cultivate their abilities to praise God with music. We recognize that as Christians we are sent forth into the world to engaging in acts of service, justice, love, and peace. Our church has an active Food Pantry and we are a founding host church of Seacoast Family Promise. We provide a monthly Communion service to residents of Clipper Harbor in Portsmouth. Mutema Church is our sister church in Zimbabwe. We support Our Church's Wider Mission through the UCC.

Community Congregational Church Food Pantry



Our Food Pantry in the Parish House is open Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to noon.
Donations to the Food Pantry are always welcome, and may be placed anytime in the
large box by the front door of the Parish House at 44 Post Road, Greenland, NH.

UCC Sister Church in Zimbabwe


Mutema Church is our sister UCC church in Zimbabwe. It is 140 miles south of Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, in a rather remote area where church members walk long distances to church services. Pastors visit parishioners on these new motorbikes that make it possible to visit more people. UCC Missions helped the churches to purchase the motorbikes. On the left is a photo of the former pastor of Mutema Church, Pastor Mutoo.Through our church Missions Ministry, we donated a laptop computer to Mutema Church and we are inspired by the messages we receive from our sister church and from the United Church of Christ denomination in Zimbabwe.
