What is God calling you to do?

Serving is the heartbeat of our church. We believe that God has equipped everyone with specific gifts and talents, and it is our desire to help you find your fit. Below, you will find many opportunities to serve. Ask God what He would have you do, and then make the next step to sign up. If you would like more info, don’t hesitate to contact the ministry leader or call the office at (603) 895-2859 with questions. We are excited to see what God is going to do through you as we work together to share the love of Christ in our community and beyond. In Christ’s love, Pastor Kevin McBride
