Congregational Events

In order to have your local church's event posted here these things are required:

  • a written announcement or flier about the event must be received at least three weeks in advance of the event date. Events should be sent to Congregational Events.
  • sponsorship of the event by a congregation in covenant with the New Hampshire Conference, United Church of Christ.

While it is assumed that these events will be edifying for the life and ministry of the Church, the New Hampshire Conference, United Church of Christ does not endorse any particular event.
