Ministries

Christ Presbyterian Church desires to minister to our church family as well as Nashua, the surrounding communities, and the global church. We encourage our members to meet together regularly for fellowship, study, prayer, and service. If you’d like to be involved, please contact an elder or deacon.

Children & Youth

CPC is blessed to have many children as part of our congregation! On Sunday mornings, we provide children’s church for kids in preschool and elementary school. Volunteers use a provided curriculum that lays out what to teach and the activities to do for the lesson. We also provide a nursery for babies two years old and younger. In addition, there is a crying room available at the back of the sanctuary for parents with babies and small children.

Kids in 5th through 8th grade meet for youth group twice a month. Children aged 12 and up also assist in the nursery and children’s church and help in the service by passing the offering plate and reading scripture.

Adults

There are several discipleship and prayer groups meeting currently. If you’d like to join one, please contact an elder.

We also meet to pray for our pastor search before Sunday services and Wednesdays at noon (see the Pulpit Committee page or Calendar for meeting information). 

Our women’s Bible study meets weekly on Tuesday mornings and is currently studying the book of Romans.

Adult Sunday School is not happening currently, but here are some examples of things we have studied in the past: the Westminster Confession of Faith, global missions (using Dispatches from the Front), and various books (like How the Nations Rage by Jonathan Leeman). 

Small Groups

CPC’s small groups are family-friendly, and children are welcome. There is usually a potluck dinner and fellowship, followed by study and prayer. In these groups, we work out how to apply God’s word to our lives. We currently have two small groups meeting: one Thursday evenings online, and one Friday evenings in Amherst, NH.

Fellowship

We gather regularly for meals, conversation, and fun. Every other month, we have a potluck church luncheon after our worship service. During the summer months, we have church picnics at members’ homes or local parks. We are located across the street from an ice cream stand, so we meet there after services once a month while the weather is nice. Our congregation also enjoys game nights, baseball games, the occasional hike, and other activities. 

Outreach & Missions

CPC serves others by ministering in our community and partnering with organizations in our region and the world. If you’d like to volunteer, pray for, or financially support any of these organizations or missionaries, please contact a deacon for more information.

We are involved in the local community through volunteer work at Family Promise of Southern New Hampshire, an organization committed to ending homelessness one family at a time.

We support ministries throughout New England as well, including:

CPC is also involved in global missions by supporting several missionaries and missions organizations. Jason Wakefield, our former pastor, co-founded Global Equip, and through that organization, CPC sent him to Sierra Leone, Haiti, Nepal, South Africa, and Bulgaria to teach and train local leaders. Church members ministered with Global Equip in Haiti and have also participated in missions trips through the PCA’s Mission to North America and Mission to the World organizations. In addition, we support missionaries in Asia and South America.
