Pastor's Welcome

Pastors Welcome:

Welcome to the First Congregational Church of Swanzey! I am glad that you visited our website today. As I say every week in my greeting, “No matter where you are on your life or spiritual journey, I hope you feel a touch of the Lord this morning.”  That is my prayer for you.

We are a community of believers who seek to practice the way of Jesus together. Our church has just celebrated 280 years of worship, community and service in the town of Swanzey. We are a traditional, evangelical and Biblical community of faith.

We believe in God’s presence and power and seek to live lives guided by God’s Holy Spirit. We provide a nurturing and challenging place in which to explore our Christian beliefs, grow in faith and find meaning in today’s often overwhelming and confusing world.

We provide a place where people of all ages can forge lasting friendships and become part of a community that is based on mutual respect and shared values. There are a wide variety of opportunities to get to know one another, enjoy each other’s company, and care for and sustain one another in times of hardship and stress.

Please feel free to reach out to me or any member of the church should you have any questions. Explore our website to find out more. We hope you will join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  If you are not able to attend church in person, follow us on Facebook where you can receive updates and watch us online.

You can reach Christopher by phone at (603) 499-6646 or by email at
