    Cornucopia Food Pantry collection

Members of our congregation provide regular hands-on service and financial support in many areas.  Locally, we support programs such as My Friends Place, CrossRoads House, Families First, Dover Friendly Kitchen, the Goodwin Community Health, as well as our own Echo Community Thrift Shop. Each year we deliver Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas gifts through the Waysmeet Center, United Campus Ministry to needy families. Globally, we maintain a partnership with a mission in Honduras, and contribute to many other ministries. We continue to give through the four United Church of Christ offerings of “Our Church’s Wider Mission.” Increased Mission generosity is an ongoing goal.  Additionally, we continue to explore various justice issues pertinent to our faith such as the environment, immigration, hunger and world peace.

Spend Some Sunday Mornings with Some of the World’s Greatest Kids

We love our kids.  Being with them is one of the great joys of being a part of this church community.  If you like to teach, consider teaching church school on a Sunday morning.  If you like caring for infants and toddlers, helping out in the nursery (“Kinderkirk) during church may be your thing. And if what you really love is the energy and excitement of teens, working with our Pathfinders or high school group may be just the place for you. For more information please contact our Education & Faith Formation Director Kristin Forselius at .

Work a Shift at Our Echo Community Thrift Shop

Echo is our own, very cool thrift shop.  Located on-site and run entirely by volunteers Echo offers great quality, affordable clothing, accessories, small household items, vintage, and books.  We are open Monday – Friday from 10:00am – 5:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am-2:00pm.  Proceeds from the thrift shop support both our work here at Community Church and the work of nonprofits throughout the region.  So if you just want to shop or you’d like to volunteer for a shift, stop by or contact the church office by phone at 603-868-1230 or via email.

Protect the Environment

We have a long history of involvement in efforts to protect and nurture the world that God has created. In addition to programs like the recent “Eco Resource Fair,” we are in the process of developing a “Green Covenant” that reflects our on-going commitment to caring for God’s good earth. For more information or to add your talents and passion to this work, contact our Earth Steward, Maggie Morrison ">via email.
