God’s Baby Closet
For more than 20 years First Congregational Church has operated a closet that welcomes young families who are struggling to supply their children with diapers, wipes, clothing up to 5T, food, books and small baby equipment. Hours are Tuesday through Thursday mornings 10-noon and the catchment area includes southern Rockingham County. Persons who can bring ID and proof of residence are welcomed to visit and make use of this resource.

Yearly, we also support a Christian Seminary in Belgium, send 2 young children to school through the Global Ministries Sponsor Program, Support Andover Newton Theological School, Seacoast Family Promise, Seacoast Youth Services, and Church World Service program.

We prepare a meal for 80+ residents of Cross Roads House Homeless Shelter each 4th Wednesday of the month.
We offer worship services for residents of Partridge House and Cornerstone Senior Living in Hampton.
