Dover

First Parish Church Congregational, United Church of Christ, Dover

Full time settled pastor 

405 Members

Salary to be negotiated, guided by UCC recommendations for experience, housing and benefits.

Rich in history and legend, we are one of the oldest, continuous congregations in America. Our Pilgrim forebears settled in a beautiful place, close to the sea and not far from the mountains. Three hundred and eighty-five years later, we are that church community in recent decades where “the only constant is change”. We are acutely aware of the need to reinvent ourselves. 

We believe we serve God well by our outreach in the community and to the wider world. (We like to think it is one of the things we do best.) Our worship aspires to be stimulating and is always supported by the presence of our children and our foundational love of music. We are a family church and a tight church family. We have in place a dedicated program staff, an ample team of Stephen Ministers, an experienced administrator, and tireless lay leaders, All we need is a creative, energetic pastor who can partner with them in ministry, inspiring and leading us to ever-new ways of being relevant. And if he or she has a sense of humor – perfect. 

As the Blues Brothers once said, we are on a “Mission from God!” It is a sacred journey that we travel with awe and reverence. In other ways, it is like a vacation road trip: full of laughs, adventures, and novel experiences. We are looking for a new driver!  Please read our profile and decide if it could be you.

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.

Hillsboro

Smith Memorial Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

Pastor  Full Time

88 Members

The congregation of Smith Memorial Congregational Church, UCC of Hillsborough sometimes feels as though it’s on the edge of a precipice, looking into a void. Like many New England churches, Smith has a rich and storied history. Once thriving, its work was well known. Now, however, we feel a sense of urgency as we seek a settled, full-time pastor/teacher. 

We face many challenges. Although still a bustling group with many outreach efforts, our numbers have dwindled sharply. We yearn for children in our midst once again. We seek a pastor with the confidence and spiritual development to assist us in developing a vision for our church, complete with the accompanying short-term goals. Our Christian Education programs for all stages needs revitalization. Although Smith is warm and welcoming, we want our doors to be wide open ~ beckoning to all with a joyful, uplifting sense of place. 

Are you ready for the challenge of a lifetime? There is much here to work with - a depth and breadth to the talent and expertise among us, great music, many adventures, wonderful food at church gatherings, and a caring, committed group of people. Won’t you join us on this journey as the Spirit moves us to places we never imagined?

Ninety years ago, in a small town in New Hampshire, a federation was born. Forged from necessity, three churches merged and embarked on a long journey together. Our Star Ship Enterprise was no fantasy, but a living group of searchers, seeking comfort and grace. Now we are embarked on a brave new adventure of faith as we live into the 21st century in one time and place. What is church today? How do we honor our traditions? Who is our neighbor? What is Jesus calling us to do? If you are adventurous, please request our profile, which provides details about us, about pastoral salary and spiritual support and about the beauty and culture of the Monadnock Region in southwest NH.
