Dear Friends,

One of the best parts of my work is being able to teach and write about our 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:

In the Spirit (previously known as News and Notes from the Pastor’s Desk) is a, more or less, weekly keeping in touch blog that includes a variety of thoughts and reflections. Links to recent “In the Spirit” posts can be found below, along with a sign up to receive these posts by email.

Ripples and Reflections is a monthly article about ministry and the life of our church. You may find these articles in the monthly PDF copy of the Church Window.

Sermons are available on the Sermons page under the Worship menu. There you will find several of the most recent Sermons, as well as a collection of Milestone Sermons in both text and audio formats. If the sermon you are looking for isn’t listed on the page, copies of all our sermons are available by contacting our Church office at 603-625-5093.

I hope you enjoy reading some of these offerings. 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.

Yours in Faith,
Rev. Kevin Pleas
