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.

The Newfields Community Church is excited to announce an “Immigration Art Exhibition” to be on display at the church from April 23 through May 21: “Crying in the Wilderness: An Immigrant’s Journey in Detention'' featuring photos by Becky Field. An opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, April 23 from 10:30-12:00 in the lower level of the church, following worship. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited.

This exhibition features photos, words and artwork illustrating the physical and emotional toll of immigrant detention. “Crying in the Wilderness: An Immigrant’s Journey in Detention” includes 10 large black-and-white photos printed on canvas and suspended within a freestanding black frame with black cord, symbolizing the bondage of detention.

“Art has a way of touching the heart in ways that words fall short,” says Pastor Cheryl Stromski, “and to read the prose, written by the hand of the one who has suffered allows us to enter more intimately into the world of the immigrant.” This exhibit encourages reflection and develops empathy and compassion. It is free and open to the public:

Tuesday and Thursday 12:00-6:00 pm and Saturdays from 4:00-7:00

or by appointment by calling: 603-828-5234. This exhibit is supported in part by a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts.
