Worship at CCA

 


Services

We invite you, your family, relatives, and friends to join us for Sunday Worship services. Inspired worship can be anticipated!  Most worship services include a Children’s Time, after which children from age 2 through seventh grade attend church school classes. We provide child care for infants and young children, opening at 9:40 a.m.

Family Worship takes place on the 3rd Sunday of the month.  Children will be invited to stay in worship for the whole service, which will be shaped especially for families to worship together. The music will be a little different, and the prayers, scriptures and messages more understandable to younger folks. However, this service is not just for children—it’s for everybody. And the more generations we have present, the richer the experience will be.  There is no church school during Family Sunday but there is nursery care.

Early Worship Join us at 8:00am for an earlier worship once a month on the second Sunday of the month. It preserves the spiritual content of worship while allowing for those with full schedules to worship in a shorter service.

Everyone is invited to enjoy fellowship and refreshments in the community room following Sunday services.


Special services:

Baptism

Infant baptism is offered to those children whose parent(s) and sponsor(s) promise to assume certain responsibilities for the Christian nurture of the child. One of the parents or sponsors should be a member in good standing of a Christian church. Baptism takes place in the presence of the community of faith gathered for public worship.
A Pastor meets with prospective parents one time before the service to familiarize the family with the nature of the sacrament and the service.

Wedding

Persons interested in celebrating their wedding in the Congregational Church of Amherst may do so in consultation with the church staff. Separate fees pertain to non-members.  We request a minimum of two meetings with a Pastor before the wedding rehearsal.  All arrangements are made with Judi Simpson, our wedding coordinator, who assists couples in their wedding plans at the church.

Please contact Judi at: 603-672-4410, or email: Judi Simpson

Funeral

To make funeral arrangements, please speak with either Pastor Dick or Pastor Maureen, or call Andrea, our Church Secretary, at the church office: 673-3231.
