Southwestern New Hampshire's Community Church

Services

Our  Services:

Although we worship together each Sunday Morning, at 10:00am, during the Christmas Season, we have a couple of special services for you to keep in mind:

The Festival of the Chrismons, Sunday December 17, 10AM

The Festival of Chrismons is a special service designed with family and children in mind.   For the unfamiliar, “Chrismon” is a combination of the words “Christ” and “monogram,” and means “symbols of Christ.”.  The ornaments, made by the church, help tell the story of Christmas. During the service, our pastor invites the children in attendance to be an active part of the worship, and together with the help of some special readings, we will hear the story, sing carols, and the children will decorate the sanctuary trees.

The service is super friendly, meant to be on the light hearted side, but ultimately, is careful to stress the true reason for the season.   The service will conclude with a very special visitor – Saint Nick – with a special gift for all the children in attendance.    As is the case for all our services, a period of free refreshments, laughter and fellowship will occur after service.   If you have been thinking about a return to church for your family, but have been hesitant, this is a fantastic opportunity to check us out.

, and welcome you as you are. In our worship service, you will see blue jeans and suits alike.   We are a family and children service, offering children’s programming and a progressive message of hope and challenge to our community.  We are not a church to worry about your child crying during worship, and believe that sometimes faith is expressed in laughter as much as in tears.  We welcome all who are interested in visiting us, and look forward to meeting you.

Join Us For Our Christmas Eve Service, December 24th, 7:00PM

On December 24, the public is warmly invited to attend the annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at Asbury United Methodist Church in Chesterfield at 7:00 p.m. This moment is the perfect example of a New England Christmas Eve, as Asbury is the oldest Methodist community in New Hampshire, and one of the oldest in New England.   Thirty minutes prior to the service attendees will be presented with joyful prelude music and traditional Christmas songs. All attendees will be invited to join in the singing of popular holiday music during this time.

Promptly at 7, Pastor Scott Masters will begin the service that will include the lighting of the Advent candles and Christ candle, and will include an inspiring message about the Hope, Joy, Love and Peace we can experience because of the birth Jesus Christ. In keeping with the church’s tradition, the final carol, “Silent Night” will be sung a capella by candlelight at the conclusion of the service.
