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.

Haverhill

First Congregational Church of Haverhill, United Church of Christ

Pastor Full Time

$40,000.00 + Parsonage and Benefits

Somewhere out there we know God has a pastor who is yearning to join us on our walk of faith.

Somewhere out there, there’s a person with the qualities and the patience to make us better Christians.

Our walk with God has not been easy and we seek someone with a compass with whom we can forge a new path and a new direction together. We promise to carry our share of the load and walk alongside our minister, not behind.

It’s exciting to know that each day our new minister and we look at the same Sun, Moon and stars wondering when God will see fit to have our paths merge. And when they converge, we’ll greet each other as family, joined in a conversation that has no beginning and no end.

We are looking for someone who will fit right into our community, be excited to move into our refurbished parsonage and join us in our Christian ministry that’s been going on here in Haverhill for centuries before us and, with God’s grace, will continue for centuries more.

We have faith that somewhere out there is a person who will want to be part of this this quirky bunch of Christians, ranging in age from less than a year to nearly a century, with diverse views and a few scars from previous scuffles, but hearts filled with the love of the Lord and a desire to do his work right here in our community and beyond.

Hebron

Union Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

Pastor 3/4 Time

Conference Compensation Guidelines

53 Members

We may look like a beautiful, classic New England Church.  Although incorporated in 1779, the times and opinions have long since changed.  Rev. Dr. Martin Copenhaver, President of Andover Newton Theological School, thought small churches in New England were dying until he spent a day with members of our church.  We seek a strong pastor with the confidence, spiritual development and sense of community ties for which our church is known.  If you are caring, flexible, experienced and faithful, we would love to talk to you.  Our doors are wide open and our enthusiasm is over flowing.

Madbury

Madbury United Church of Christ

Pastor 1/2 Time

45 Members

$31,000 (includes housing allowance)

Nestled in a former agricultural village turned bedroom town, Madbury UCC continues to turn hearts to God, to follow Jesus, and to be guided by the Holy Spirit.  Because we are a small band, we work side by side, active in service, patient and caring with each other and our pastor, searching to find modern ways to raise funds and share our good news.  We are Open and Affirming.  We also provide hands on post detention support to immigrants.  A warm welcome is offered to all and we seek to reach out to those in need.  Adjacent to the Seacoast area, Madbury maintains a small town feel of informality, compassion and intimacy.  Our sister congregation, Maranatha Indonesian UCC, has stretched our hearts and minds in new directions, and we are open minded and eager to receive our new pastor’s creative ideas, while valuing the traditions of the UCC. 

We seek a pastor to share our fellowship and help us visualize the future.  Our pastor needs to communicate well with both young and old, facilitate our use of social networking, understand the UCC’s developing role in our current society, and help discern our church’s mission.  We offer a part time position with a salary of $31,000 including housing allowance.  We are open to discussing employment requirements and negotiating benefits to achieve a fair agreement.. Grounded in scripture, we hope for a pastor to shepherd us in our spiritual growth, be sensitive to our needs and idiosyncrasies, and encourage us as we try to be the Lord’s presence on earth and carry the light of a loving God into the future.
