SERVE

Caring for Exeter and the world.

FAITH IN ACTION.

We believe in God’s love and grace, and so we give thanks to God by serving others. Members of our church community serve both inside the congregation and out in the community and world. No matter what talents and skills you bring, there’s a place for you to give to others too.

This church is blessed by many people who serve inside the doors in a variety of roles including deacons, trustees, ushers, Scripture readers, choir members, church school teachers, and more. Together we work to create a community that is welcoming and vibrant.  Most importantly, they make our service outside of the doors of our church possible.

In the community we support a number wonderful organizations. We give generously to Seacoast Family Promise, and a group of volunteers hosts families at a neighboring church. Three times a week we host AA, and once a month we open our church to the Red Cross for their blood drive. We regularly collect donations for the food pantry at St. Vincent de Paul. Our Shawl Knitters work together to create prayer shawls for those who are sick. And we regularly participate in service projects like beach clean-ups at Jenness Beach, and donating baskets of food to families in need on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We love our community, but our focus doesn’t end there. This church cares about all of God’s world. We cherish our partnership with our sister church in Pfizda, Zimbabwe. We participate in regular fundraisers for the Heifer Project, which provides gifts of animals to communities seeking to be self-sufficient. Church World Service, which provides assistance to refugees and those in disaster areas, is another favorite organization of ours. And we prayerfully respond to the news of the day, and try to give and serve as we are able, no matter where God’s love calls us.

We believe that our faith allows no less from us, and we serve joyfully. And the really great news is that there’s always room for more people who believe the same!
