Given the very real concerns surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus and the Governor’s recent “Stay-at-Home” Order for the state of New Hampshire, we will be unable to gather for "in person" services of worship and all other meetings and activities at East Church at least until after May 4, which means that we will *not* be holding worship at the church.
We will, however, offer an online service of worship via Facebook Live (East Congregational United Church of Christ) at our regular worship time Sunday at 10:00 a.m. with music, prayer and a message for the day!
If you missed our live service you may view the recording and other videos here: East Congregational Facebook Videos
This is a public site, and should be easily accessible even to those not currently on Facebook (you may need to navigate around some requests to join Facebook, but you should be able to view the live streaming of the service, as well as other videos and messages that are being posted throughout the week).
In addition, Sunday’s message, along with other sermons and devotionals will be posted on the “Pastoral Ponderings” blog and the “Love to Tell the Story” Podcast available wherever you listen to podcasts.
We hope you’ll plan to be with us online this Sunday as it is a good way for us all to be together in these difficult times. We have also added a secure online giving form through Tithely if you are able please consider using this method to support our church in these unprecedented times. Know that we will keep you posted as to any and all news from the church as it happens. In the meantime, stay in and stay healthy, remain calm, be prayerful, and above all, always abound in the hope that is ours in Christ Jesus!
