About United Church of Penacook:

Organized in 1856, the Church is housed in a traditional New England style building and has primary affiliation with American Baptist Churches USA (ABC VT/NH). We are also affliated with United Church of Christ (NH Conference UCC), having merged an ABC church with a then Congregational Church in 1953. We minister to a 15 mile radius, offer a community food pantry, and have a diverse, multi-generational congregation. We offer a mixed worship style of contemporary and traditional music, at a single 10 AM year round service time.

Beyond our pastor, we employ a pianist for Sundays, and a part time person who provides secretarial, book keeping and cleaning services (both of whom work with and report to the pastor).

We host community groups such as the Scouts, Narcotics Anonymous and TOPS (Take Pounds Off Sensibly) groups, as well the Open Door Community Kitchen (the area's soup kitchen). We also host occasional Concord City meetings/events.
