Deerfield

Deerfield Community Church, United Church of Christ

Interim Pastor Full Time

100 Members

$39,550.00-$43,000.00 (range based on experience) + Housing Allowance and Benefits

"After the retirement of our settled pastor of 20 years, we seek an interim minister who will encourage our continued reliance on God’s guidance as we envision new ways of living into our mission. Our congregation is blessed with gifted lay leadership; members who are committed and faithful; healthy organizational systems and dynamics; and a genuine desire to put our faith into action in our town and beyond.  Rising above a “we’ve always done it that way” mentality, our church is open to change that’s divinely inspired and approached with wisdom and care. 

Eighteen years ago we developed this statement:  The mission of Deerfield Community Church is to experience, share, and grow in God’s life-giving love. Inspired by the the Holy Scriptures, we come together in the name of Jesus Christ to worship, pray, learn, and serve.  It’s time to let the Holy Spirit breath fresh life into who we are and where we are going!"

Fitzwilliam

Fitzwilliam Community Church, United Church of Christ

Pastor Half Time

$37,000 includes housing and benefits

In the next few years with a settled pastor we would hope to achieve the following:

1.      Provide a worship service based on the scripture that is positive, uplifting and helps us better understand the Bible and how it is applicable to our lives.

2.      Become a central force in our community, helping define and meet the spiritual and pastoral care needs of not only parishioners but our neighbors.

3.      Increase membership by providing worship services that attract new people because the service meets their needs.

In order to achieve our goals we would need a pastor who provides an inspirational worship service demonstrating an in depth knowledge of the scripture with relevance for our daily lives, demonstrates skill in pastoral care and demonstrates strong parishioner development and community outreach.

Hillsboro

Smith Memorial Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

Pastor  Full Time

88 Members

$80,000.00-$100,000.00 based on experience and benefits selected

The congregation of Smith Memorial Congregational Church, UCC of Hillsborough sometimes feels as though it’s on the edge of a precipice, looking into a void. Like many New England churches, Smith has a rich and storied history. Once thriving, its work was well known. Now, however, we feel a sense of urgency as we seek a settled, full-time pastor/teacher. 

We face many challenges. Although still a bustling group with many outreach efforts, our numbers have dwindled sharply. We yearn for children in our midst once again. We seek a pastor with the confidence and spiritual development to assist us in developing a vision for our church, complete with the accompanying short-term goals. Our Christian Education programs for all stages needs revitalization. Although Smith is warm and welcoming, we want our doors to be wide open ~ beckoning to all with a joyful, uplifting sense of place. 

Are you ready for the challenge of a lifetime? There is much here to work with - a depth and breadth to the talent and expertise among us, great music, many adventures, wonderful food at church gatherings, and a caring, committed group of people. Won’t you join us on this journey as the Spirit moves us to places we never imagined?

Ninety years ago, in a small town in New Hampshire, a federation was born. Forged from necessity, three churches merged and embarked on a long journey together. Our Star Ship Enterprise was no fantasy, but a living group of searchers, seeking comfort and grace. Now we are embarked on a brave new adventure of faith as we live into the 21st century in one time and place. What is church today? How do we honor our traditions? Who is our neighbor? What is Jesus calling us to do? If you are adventurous, please request our profile, which provides details about us, about pastoral salary and spiritual support and about the beauty and culture of the Monadnock Region in southwest NH.
