About Us

“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.”

-Matthew 10:40

The First Congregational Church of Wilmot, United Church of Christ, is an Open and Affirming congregation, embracing diversity and affirming the dignity and worth of every person; for we are all created in God’s image.

We welcome into full membership and participation in the Body of Christ persons of every race, ethnic background, age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, socio-economic background, marital status and faith tradition. We welcome all to share in the life, ministry, and activities of this family of faith. With the completiton of our recent renovations, the church is fully accessible.

…and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

-Micah 6:8

Our Vision and Mission:

To worship the living God who is revealed in Jesus of Nazareth, our crucified and risen savior. To live and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ as best we are able, rendering loving service to all people, and striving for justice and peace. To celebrate the sacraments and rites of the Christian church, seeking deeper fellowship as we grow in faith.

The Reverend Sara Marean began serving as our Pastor and Teacher  in April of 2014.  A lifelong member of the United Church of Christ, Sara earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion and English from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana and her Masters of Divinity Degree from Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  She served congregations in Minnesota and Massachusetts before returning home to New Hampshire.

Tim Goss has lived in New Hampshire his entire life.  He studied Music Performance at Keene State College and graduated in 2015. He has been playing the piano for longer than many can remember, and also enjoys playing the flute, the ocarina, an occasional trombone, but never the guitar. Touchingly obsessed with musicals, he has accompanied dozens of shows including a performance of Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, and Annie, in which he was relegated to a little alcove backstage to toil away like a gremlin.  In his free time, he enjoys reading, playing video games, learning new languages, and drinking almost illegal amounts of coffee.
