Community Congregational Church of Greenland will hold its annual Christmas Fair on Saturday, December 11 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Greenland Parish House at 44 Post Road (Route 151) in Greenland Center. Dubbing it “our best little Christmas Fair ever,” church leadership is planning a slightly smaller event from the past 55 years, though still packed with activities and goodies, including:
– A Cookie Walk with hundreds of homemade cookies
– Tables of jewelry, crafts, holiday decor and baked goods for sale
– Raffles and Silent Auction
– Visit from Santa at 11 am
– Luncheon featuring the church’s famous hot turkey sandwich plates as well as cold sandwiches, hot dogs and beverages
Community Congregational Church, a member of the United Church of Christ, was established by Greenland town leaders in 1706. The church’s sanctuary was built 265 years ago and is a familiar landmark at the corner of Route 151 and Portsmouth Avenue. Sunday services are held in person and on-line at 10 am, led by pastor Rev. Mark Brockmeier and music director Sam Partyka. The church is also a founding congregation of Seacoast Family Promise, runs a weekly food pantry, and is involved in a number of local, national and international mission efforts.
