Weddings and Memorials
Whether or not you are a member of First Church, we are honored to offer these special services as part of our ministry.
In the words of one popular wedding service, “It is one of life’s richest surprises when the accidental meeting of two lives leads them to proceed together along the common path of marriage.” First Church delights in helping couples prepare for marriage by providing our sanctuary and our chapel as sacred and beautiful spaces for weddings and vow renewals. If you would like to schedule a service, please call our church office for information about available dates, fees and requirements. Our pastor will be in touch. Church office phone: 603.625.5093
When someone we love dies, gathering to remember and celebrate their life, and to place their life in the context of faith, is an important part of the healing process. First Church is available for Funeral and Memorial Services. Please call the church office for information and help with scheduling. Our pastor will be in touch to help you with planning and conducting a service. Church office phone: 603.625.5093
“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.”

“I love First Church because of my involvement with Women's Connection.”
“I get an overall feeling of being uplifted.”
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.
