Epping Community Church

Our church service time will be changing to 9:30 am, beginning in September. A time of fellowship following will be downstairs. Sunday School for all ages is at 11:00 am. There is a Thursday morning Bible study and prayer group at 9:30 am every week.

On September 15th our 3rd Saturday dinner will be turkey with all the fixings! It is held from 5:00-6:30 pm and the cost is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children. You can eat in our Fellowship Hall or you can take a meal home to enjoy. In October, the McPhee/Weaver family will once again serve their very popular Fish Fry. Please look for details on our sign out in front of the church. This dinner is always very well attended and they do a great job!!!

September 22nd we will be sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive at the church. This will be from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Please look for details on our ECC sign near the driveway. You can sign up ahead of time on the Red Cross website and then do your “Easy Pass” and be in and out in no time at all. Please come and donate to help save lives. It is very easy to do.

Our food pantry is open every Saturday from 8-10 am. Entry is through the side door off the driveway. We also continue to have our Soup of the Day Café every Thursday from 11:00 am-12:30 pm. After taking the month of August off we are ready to begin serving soup and salad to all that come. We will reopen on Thursday, September 6th. This is a free lunch open to all in the community. We offer two different kinds of soup, salad and dessert every week. Come and join us - you may see some old friends or meet some new ones.

Meals on Wheels has been located at our facility for over a year now. They pack and deliver meals to people in Rockingham County. They also serve lunch in the church on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. If you know someone that could benefit from this wonderful program you can call 679-1609. They need a 48-hour notice for a reservation. The cost of the meal is $2.00. They also have a thrift shop on site that anyone can browse through and buy items.

We had a very successful burger BBQ in the driveway at the church. Tacos were also served on a Saturday in the driveway. Look for other “Pop-Up” meals that will be on our sign. These are donation only and if you have nothing... you’re still welcome to come eat and see what Pastor Paul has cooking!!!

West Epping Quaker Meeting House

The West Epping Meeting grew out of the Seabrook Quarterly Meeting in the middle of the 18th century. Records show that Joshua Folsom was a recorded minister among Friends in the community in 1772 – though he may have commenced his activities even earlier. The present Meeting House was built in 1851. The surrounding tall pines, dating from this period, have been a distinguishing feature of West Epping Village.

West Epping Friends meet for silent worship at 10 am every first and third Sunday of the month. We welcome visitors to our meetings to join with us.
