Special Program

EXETER - Exeter, New Hampshire, founded in 1638, is celebrating its 375th anniversary this year. The church that started the town is also celebrating 375 years, and the congregation that started it is still alive and well. The Congregational Church in Exeter, United Church of Christ, will mark the anniversary year of its existence with a “375th Historical Celebration in Words, Images and Music” on Sun., November 3, at 3:00 p.m. It will be free and open to the public as the church’s contribution to the town’s ongoing 375th Anniversary observances.

The program, the first public event to take place in the church’s newly renovated sanctuary, will include narration, visual images, choral, organ and instrumental music and congregational participation. It has been planned under the direction of Interim Pastor Rev. Christine Boardman and Music Director Kimberly Karchenes.

The program will cover briefly the major periods of the church’s history, from the early 20-by-20-foot log building on what is now Salem Street, on through the Revolutionary War era, the mid-1800s, the World War II years, and close with a reference to today’s continuing efforts for peace and justice. In addition to hearing the spirited music of the 30-voice Senior Choir, the Aeolian Skinner organ and the popular Sassafras String Band, the audience will see many historical photos and images taken from the church and town archives and shown throughout the program on the new projection system in the sanctuary.

All are invited to attend on Sun., November 3, at 3:00 p.m. The church is located at 21 Front Street, Exeter, near the bandstand, and is handicapped accessible. For further information please call 772-4216 or visit www.exetercongchurch.org.
