Worship Service

Our Summer Worship hours have begun- Father’s Day through Labor Day with ONE Service at 9am.
During the program year, worship with us each week at 8:15AM Shaw Chapel in person & 10AM in person, livestream and on the air at
 WSMN 1590 AM /WSMN 95.3 FM.

Sunday worship services at First Church are at 8:15 AM in Shaw Chapel and 10 AM in the Sanctuary..
The second service, at 10am in the sanctuary is an energetic service with a children’s message and additional music. Both services consist of hymns and anthems; liturgy, prayers; an offering; scripture and sermon. We consider worship to be the heartbeat of our faith and listen for God’s leading in our lives. We believe God’s Word speaks to our contemporary needs, problems, and opportunities, both in our lives and in the world around us.

The Sacraments

First Church Nashua is a member of the United Church of Christ. We are a Protestant community, which means we observe two central sacraments. They are Baptism and the Eucharist (also called communion or the Lord’s Supper). These practices are given to us by Jesus in the Gospels. By employing common things of the earth & water, bread, and the fruit of the vine & the sacraments are outward signs of an inward grace which have sustained Christ’s disciples for over two millennia. First Church practices open communion and celebrates the sacrament monthly on the first Sunday of each month.

How to Find Us

First Church is located at One Concord Street on the northern most end of Main Street in Nashua NH, where Main meets Amherst Street and Concord Street.  See our information page for more details, including a map.

Where To Park

There is a parking lot behind the church, most easily accessed from Concord Street, but it is also accessible from Lock Street and Orange Street. On Sundays, parking is available in the Front Door lot at 7 Concord Street, and also in the parking lot behind Eaton & Berube Insurance, at 11 Concord Street. There is ample on-street parking in the area as well.

Accessibility

First Church is handicapped accessible; there is an elevator at the court yard entrance which is located in the link between our education and sanctuary buildings. The court yard opens onto the main parking lot. The elevator provides access to all levels of both the education building (the Walker Building) and the sanctuary building.

What To Wear

Come as you are! There is no dress code, but most people probably wear what might be considered ‘office casual’.

Children And Youth

For our youngest friends (ages 0-2), we have a state of the art nursery located in the lower level of the main building; follow the signs or ask an usher if you are unsure how to navigate. Pagers are available and wristbands are used to make sure everyone gets matched up with their loved ones at the end of the service.

For children aged 3 through 8th grade, our Sunday School meets each Sunday morning, September through June, from 10:00 – 11:15 a.m. Well trained and professionally supervised volunteer teachers seek to create a caring, accepting atmosphere in which to learn about the Bible and the principles of the Christian faith as they apply to living faithfully in today’s world. You can get more information or register at the Christian Education office located on the second floor of the Walker Building. Click here to learn more.
