Hanover Center

First Congregational Church of Hanover (UCC) yoked with the First Baptist Church of Hanover (ABC)

Pastor – Full time

$40,000 (starting cash salary) + Parsonage and Benefits 

120 Members 

The FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF HANOVER (American Baptist Church) and the FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCHOF HANOVER (United Church of Christ) are located in the villages of Etna and Hanover Center, which are part of the picturesque Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire.  Together we form a yoked congregation and share a pastor in all areas of ministry. 

The area offers an abundance of cultural, educational and outdoor opportunities and is known for its top-ranked schools.  Our congregation includes retirees, people in trade, administration, banking, health care providers, educators, and engineers. Major employers are Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center plus a variety of technology and light manufacturing companies. Our church buildings include a newly re-furbished 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage parsonage across the street from the Baptist Church in Etna, in which our pastor resides. Sunday worship is held in Etna during the school year and in Hanover Center during the summer.  Our congregation includes parishioners from a variety of religious backgrounds. Some have chosen not to become members but participate in worship, activities and financial support.  Worship features a Biblical sermon that also shows awareness of people’s lives and of current events in the community and the world.  A “Time with the Children” is led by the pastor and occasionally by a lay person. Our Sunday school is small, yet the area shows potential for attracting young families. Our outreach serves both local and wider church needs.  For the past two years we have sent a pastor-led mission team to the Dominican Republic to assist local folks in church and parsonage construction and to hold a Bible school for children.  Another important focus has included visiting missionaries to increase awareness and financial support across a range of areas.  Our local outreach includes dinners for low-income residents, care packages for the homebound, support for the Drug Court, Willing Hands food distribution, and the Good Neighbor Health Clinic, gospel singing at two nursing facilities, and a summer lunch program for children. We hold popular community-wide events such as a country family fair, a summer band concert, a talent show, and several suppers. Our pastor plays a key role in our outreach, so it can continue to flourish. We are known to be a friendly and welcoming church and appreciate a pastor who acts in that same manner.  The tenures of our most recent pastors have been 37 and 3 years bridged by an effective interim ministry.

We hope to continue an active and caring ministry together with our next pastor, who will provide pastoral care and stimulate congregational participation in worship, education, mission and community building for all ages and to attract young families into our midst.  We have a great capacity to love our pastor and our church. We want our pastor to love us and this ministry. We strive to “hold fast to that which is good and serve God with gladness”.

Meredith

The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

Pastor – ¾ Time

110 Members

Conference Guidelines and benefits

We are a loving community of worshipers, seeking a pastor who will offer vibrant, relevant sermons and who will connect with members in a personal way. We are also looking for a leader to help us continue to grow in numbers and in spiritual depth, and particularly to help us grow our ministry to children. We have made important first steps toward these goals, and we hope to call a pastor to guide our next steps. This is a ¾-time position, and we realize that this means we will need to continue to do much of the church’s work ourselves. We love living in Meredith, and we think you would enjoy living here, too. It is a lovely New England town, nestled between Lake Winnipesaukee and Lake Waukewan. We are two hours from Boston, one hour from the sea coast, and 15-45 minutes from ski runs. We have four beautiful seasons. Our community and the surrounding towns offer plays and festivals and concerts. We also love maple syrup in the spring and apple picking in the fall. Is God calling you to join us on our journey?

Members of the South Church congregation bring a variety of faith backgrounds to shape our worship, music, and education experience. This inclusive mix creates a vibrant atmosphere in which to explore faith. We seek a pastor who inspires us with good will and humor to continue the exploration—nurturing our personal growth, strengthening our church family, and encouraging our service to the wider community. In recent years we have added new members, we have sent delegations to our Ukama partners in Zimbabwe, and we have helped establish a summer food program for school children. Now we seek a settled pastor who will embrace all of this activity!

Wakefield

First Congregational Church of Wakefield, UCC

Pastor-3/4 time

118 Members

$60,000 (includes housing + benefits)

The First Congregational Church of Wakefield seeks a Pastor to partner with us in reaching out to young people and families, continuing our efforts in community engagement and ecumenical outreach, and continuing our involvement in the wider world. We seek someone who will supply strong spiritual leadership and guidance, will aid us in our faith formation efforts at all age levels and is financially astute. We pray for a dynamic preacher who will increase the use of stories, relevant music, and videos in our worship services. And we need someone with strong pastoral care skills (listening and compassionate; able to direct parishio­ners to resources for additional support services) and who possesses a healthy sense of humor!

We recognize a pastor — to be optimally healthy — needs to attend to self-care in areas such as: attending to his/her own spiritual and pastoral growth, taking time for reflection, practicing life balance and building relationships outside the ministerial setting.

We would welcome a first-time call minister, and we prefer to partner with a clergy person from the New England area in order to keep relocation costs in line with our commitment to financial stewardship and sustainability. That said, we would certainly be willing to review clergy applications from other areas, with the understanding that all our compensation is subject to negotiation. And, as this is a ¾ time position, we are open to discussion about bi-vocational employment.

Could you be our Shepherd? We are a small New England church in need of a caring, vibrant and stable leader.  We desire a person to help us become more Christ-like and loving through increased knowledge of the scriptures, to help us grow in our congregational and community relationships, and to encourage us in making worship relevant through a variety of music styles, technology, prayer and preaching.

We are strong on missions and serving our community but need a shepherd to help us bring God's focus to our purpose, navigate God's Word, and nurture us towards physical and spiritual growth, through Jesus Christ.
