Gorham UCC: ‘Come as You are’

GORHAM, NH — ‘Come as you are’ is on our newly painted sign hanging on the pole at 143 Main Street in Gorham, NH. The sign has hung there for many years welcoming the community to The Gorham Congregational Church, UCC. As you drive by the church, look up at the stained glass windows on the front! A new light system was put in that illuminates the colors so beautifully.

The Gorham Congregational Church, UCC welcomed Reverend Gerry Tilton from Bartlett, NH as the transitional minister. The church is rooted in tradition with worship services held at 10 a.m. each Sunday. Communion is served the first Sunday of each month. A new Bible Study group for all to enjoy will start on the second Saturday in January at 10 a.m. to be held at the church.

The traditional Christmas Tree Fair will be held on Saturday Dec. 3 from 10 – 2 with a cookie walk, soup luncheon, raffle, craft table, bake sale and more! God’s Giving Garden returns after a successful winter season last year! Anyone who would like to donate items such as hats, mittens, scarfs, socks or blankets can bring them on the day of the Christmas fair or on any Sunday morning. Donation boxes will be available! This outside project is planned to be ready for Thanksgiving weekend for anyone in the community who needs one or more of these items.

For the Holiday Season, there will be a traditional Christmas Eve Candlelight service at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 24. On Sunday, Dec. 25, at 10 a.m. a Christmas morning service will be held. A special holiday choir is being organized for both services. For anyone interested in joining the holiday choirs, please reach out to Martha Sappington at [email protected] Watch Facebook for other activities and announcements at Gorham Congregational Church, UCC.
