Covid-19 Remembrance Service
You are invited to gather on the front steps of the Chester Congregational Baptist Church for a brief service of scripture, prayer and the tolling of the church bell on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 5:30 pm to remember those who died of COVID-19. While it will be outdoors, masks will be required and social distancing will be practiced.
Due to the age and health concerns of the majority of the congregation there will continue to be no “in-person” worship until at least the end of the year. An “In-sanctuary” service to include music, lay readers and soloists will recorded every Sunday at 10am, and will be posted later in the afternoon each Sunday. You may visit our YouTube channel: “Chester Congregational Baptist Church” to view the service, or see the video below. Previous virtual services can be found by going the Worship tab, then the “Virtual Services” page, or our YouTube channel.
The Chester Community Food Pantry will be open on Saturday, January 25th from 9am to noon in the Church Vestry.
Bad Weather/Storm Cancellations:
During in-person worship, we will post Church service cancellations on WMUR. The information can be found on WMUR channel 9 or on the WMUR website.
Catch the Spirit!
Come and experience the love of God in Christian community and worship.
We are God’s people, gathered into a community of faith in the heart of our small town. We provide an open and welcoming physical and spiritual center for worship, fellowship, support, Christian education, service, and outreach to one another, the community, and the world. We celebrate the rich and varied religious heritage of our congregation, yet we are a united and caring church family, knit together in love by our common faith in Jesus Christ. We strive to embody Christ’s love and teachings in our living and being, and to share our faith, talents, and resources with others through our mutual ministry in His name.
