OPENING AND AFFIRMING STATEMENT
“We declare this congregation to be open and affirming for people of all ages, races, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender expressions who wish to participate in this community of faith.”
The joining of two persons in sacred covenant is a holy moment. As you celebrate your love and freely give yourselves to one another in the presence of God and gathered family and friends, you demonstrate the inclusive and self-giving love of God. We affirm that, as covenant relationships made in the presence of God, both same gender and heterosexual weddings hold the same sacred legitimacy and value.
Sanctuaries at both of our meeting houses are available for marriage ceremonies for members and non-members alike. Please contact the pastor for more information.
The Sacrament of Baptism is open to any person who desires to enter into its promises and commitments. All are invited to share in this Sacrament with us during worship. Please contact the pastor for more information.
The previous church building was on the Green, but was too small and in disrepair. Money to build a new building ($2,808) was raised mostly by residents at “the Plain.” The town paid $300 toward the cost of the basement for use as a town hall (pop. estimate, 1800). Rev. Timothy Stone gave the last address at the old church in 1841. He said at the laying of the cornerstone of the present building that, unless destroyed by fire, it would probably stand “until the dawn of the millennium.” The new Village Meeting House was dedicated on Feb. 23, 1842.
The North Cornwall Meeting House was built in 1826 on a plot on Town Street donated by Deacon Noah Rogers for just over $2,500. Eight huge chestnut logs became the interior fluted pillars, provided by local farmers, a number of whom have descendants that still live in the town. When completed, the building on the outside looked almost exactly as it looks today. The NCMH underwent a preservation in 1926 and in 2015, and is used for summer services and many weddings and memorial services.
