The Congregation is diverse and welcoming. We come from many different backgrounds and we are all in different places in our lives and in our journeys of faith. But we work together, striving to grow closer to God and closer to one another.
Our Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination, a Christian body that adheres to Presbyterian polity and Calvinist doctrine. Since we are located in New Hampshire, we belong to the Synod of the Northeast, and the Presbytery of Northern New England as a part of the Synod. Denominational polity connects us closely with other PC(USA) churches around the country, and ecumenical relations bring us into close contact with our brothers and sisters in other denominations, here in the U.S. and abroad.
Our Pastor is Rev. Sally Newhall. Sally has served churches in New England as well as in Virginia, New York and Indiana. She has also been a college chaplain and taught a college course on western religions. In her spare time she loves watching and reading fantasy/scifi.
Session is the board of Elders that governs the Church. Ruling Elders are elected by the congregation for three-year terms and are responsible for the overall ministry of the church including providing worship, caring for the property and envisioning the future of the congregation.
The Deacons are officers entrusted with ministries of compassion and caregiving. Each Deacon of Nashua Presbyterian Church cares for a flock of members within the congregation. If you don't know who your deacon is, you can find out by contacting the Church. In addition to watching over the needs of the congregation, the Deacons lead the folk of the church into ministries of compassion like serving in the Nashua Soup Kitchen, buying gifts at Christmas for the Angel Tree, and many more.
