The Sacred Ally Quilts On Display at the NH Conference Office
The Sacred Ally Quilts will be on display at the New Hampshire Conference office, 140 Sheep Davis Road, Pembroke for the month of December. These 10 quilts were lovingly made by 9 United Church of Christ churches in New Hampshire to memorialize the last words of George Floyd as he lay dying on the street with a police officer kneeling on his neck. They have traveled around the state and to other states. We are blessed with the opportunity to exhibit them here in the Conference office.

The quilts may be viewed during regular office hours (8:30am-4:30pm), with extended evening hours on Monday - Thursday, 4:30pm to 7:00pm, and Saturdays 9:00am -1:00pm, December 5-21. Contact the Conference office with any questions.
Please Remember in Your Prayers...
Let us remember in our prayers the pastors and congregations of the NH Conference, as they look to the hope of Advent for God’s joy and peace to infuse our broken world. May the gift of God’s abundant love mark our journey through the coming Christmas season.

O God, in your tender mercy,
Hear our prayers!
