About our Events

Since March, 2020 when COVID-19 guidelines were first established, we have chosen to remain socially distant as we continue to maintain a strong sense of being socially connected. While we are temporarily refrained from hosting Sunday Service in-person, we encourage everyone to join us through our online communities on Facebook and Instagram, and subscribing to our weekly Brookside Bridge eNewsletter. 

Our Reopening Task Force and the Christian Formation ministry have been working hard to develop plans and protocols to ensure the safety of the entire Brookside community as we consider how to safely worship in the Sanctuary and how to reopen our building. The health and well-being of everyone in our community is paramount. We are relying on the guidelines published by the CDC, the Governor’s Economic Reopening Task Force, the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ, the UCC Insurance Board, and the experiences of churches nationwide. 

Please contact us during business hours with any questions or concerns. 

A Message from our Church Minister and Church Moderator:

We can trust that God accompanies us in the most uncertain and insecure times. Our faith upholds this promise. And Jesus preaches constantly about God’s love for human beings in all situations and at all times. Please consider these words from Psalm 46: 

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Come behold the works of God: “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” God of hosts is with us; God of Jacob is our refuge.” 

With love and deep blessings, 

Rev. Laura and Dale Trombley
