ALSTEAD, N.H. -- Maureen Lasell will be guest pastor at the Third Congregational Church UCC on Sunday, Jan. 20. All are welcome to attend the worship and Sunday school at 10:30 a.m.

On Sunday, Jan. 27, the Rev. Ivy Merrill will be guest pastor. For further information regarding worship, choir, Sunday school, or other concerns, call 603-835-6734. This is a temporary number until further notice.

The annual meeting of the Third Congregational Church will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. Pies will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m. prior to the meeting. All are welcome to attend the meeting and may participate in the conversation; however, only members will be voting on the articles in the warrant.

This meeting is important as Third Church enters into a time of transition from a full time pastor to hiring a part-time pastor. Considerations which will be entertained include the election of officers, the budget, and other business.

The Rev. Jan Howe has left the church with an important document, having written a Procedural Directory for the church as a guide, which should promise to be a great help to the congregation, and to a new pastor when that time arrives.

The church is located at 14 River St. in Alstead.
