Perhaps You Have Been Seeking a Place Where...............
Your desire to serve others will be stimulated....
Your need to laugh will be well-received and shared...
Your grieving is comforted...
Your sorrows are lightened...
Your doubts are respected...
Your children are received and welcomed...
Your talents are nourished...
Your love or art and music is expanded...
Your reasoning is appreciated...
Your friendships are strengthened...
Your personal conscience is treasured...
and you receive respect just for being who you are.

Message from Pastor Michael Graham...
Churches come in a variety of shapes and sizes; what makes each place unique is the people gathered.

Churches are one of the few institutions where people of all ages play an important role. We share life toge Pastor Michael Grahamther and make the passage from childhood to adulthood in the presence of others. How wonderful it is to make the passage through life with people who care for you.

I love the intergenerational flavor of the Gilford Community Church; where young and old regularly come together, where children arenít spoken "to" but are invited to join in the wonderful conversation of faith. The enthusiasm of our children, the idealism of our youth and young adults, and the wisdom of our elders, all blend together to make this a vibrant, hope-filled community.

The first Sunday of every month Communion is celebrated during worship.  The first Sunday is also Food Collection Sunday.  Worship attenders are invited to bring non-perishable food with them to worship to donate to the Food Pantry in the foyer in front of the sanctuary.  Also, donations are taken to give to New Beginnings (needs for New Beginnings are listed monthly in the Sunday bulletin and the monthly newsletter).
The second Sunday of every month there is a Hymn Sing held in the sanctuary, before worship, at 9:40 a.m. (except the summer months).

Telecoil Device in Our Sanctuary for the Hearing Impaired
This Device is On Your Own Hearing Aid!

Please note that the "telecoil" device noted on every Sunday bulletin as an aid to help the hearing impaired to hear the service more clearly, is a device available on your own hearing aid for you to activate yourself.  It is not a device that is available to be given to you in the pew. 

If your hearing aid does not have a "telephone mode" or "assistive hearing mode" for you to activate, consult your audiologist about acquiring such an accessory.

The church office is open from Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

In the event of inclimate weather, the church will close and the announcement will be on Channel 9 (WMUR).
Since there are no evening custodial services at the church, evening meetings and events scheduled at the church will also be cancelled at our discretion if the weather is questionable.
If the schools call a snowday, then it should be understood that all events held at the church involving students (scout meetings), will also be cancelled.
