In 1986 a small group of folk began to meet at the Turkey Farm Restaurant to talk about starting a Presbyterian Church in Nashua. After ten years of planning, dreaming, praying, worshiping and eating together, they were chartered as a new PCUSA church and soon began to build our little church in the woods. The building is all on one floor and every care has been taken to make sure that it is not just handicapped accessible but welcoming and comfortable for those with mobility issues.
From the very beginning, this small group of Christians were committed to being Christ's hands and feet in Nashua, working to bring hope and comfort to those who had no hope or comfort in their lives. Members of our congregation have faithfully served dinner to all who come once a month at the Nashua Soup Kitchen for 25 years. Other folk worked hard to begin and we continue to actively support the ministry in Nashua now known as Family Promise which provides transitional housing and hope for homeless families.
Meanwhile, back at the church, we have sought to develop our property with a concern for the environment and as a legacy for our community. There is picnic area, a meditation trail, a geocache and other thoughtful developments by the Boy Scouts in our wooded area. Our Deacons expand our Deacon's Garden every year producing hundreds of pounds of vegetables which we share with the Nashua Soup Kitchen. Our lawn and garden have been developed with care using special grasses with deep roots in the lawns for less watering and using rain barrels to water our gardens.
