One of the best parts of my work is being able to teach and write about faith and Church life. I’m pleased to offer my reflections through sermons, a monthly newsletter, and an email blog. These collections are available as:
- Ripples and Reflections: a monthly article about ministry and the life of our church, found in the monthly PDF copy of the Church Window.
- Sermons: available in both text and audio formats on the Sermons page under the Worship menu.
- In the Spirit: a, more or less, weekly keeping in touch blog. Links to recent “In the Spirit” posts can be found below, along with a sign up to receive these posts by email.
I welcome your comments, thoughts, and any ideas you might have for future topics. You may contact me through the Church office at 603-625-5093 or email at KPleas@FCCManchesterNH.org.

“It is my time at First Church that helps me "recharge" my spirit with faith and hope for the coming week!”
“A path which leads me forward in a journey of grace and love with my family, friends, and community."
“Cherished elements of core traditions live on at First Church…”
“I hope others will find such joy when they come here.”

Watch for the 2019-2020 Young Athletes dates to volunteer!
Join us this Sunday for worship! Our Commissioned Minister of Pastoral Care, Barbara Papagian, will lead the worship at 10:00am in the Sanctuary. This week's sermon is titled "Dishonest Steward or Shrewd Manager?" The reading is from Luke 16:1-13.
Service of Prayer and Healing
Inspired by the Celtic Tradition, the roughly half-hour service will include music, readings, prayers and an opportunity to receive a “Laying on of Hands” blessing. Service will be held in the Chapel following the 10:00am worship service and fellowship, on the 2nd Sunday each month. Due to scheduling conflicts, there will not be a September Service of Prayer and Healing, however Rev. Kevin Pleas is available any time you are in need of prayer.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered for the 2019 Summer Olympics!
