Saturday September 9th from 7:00-11:00 am will be our annual indoor/outdoor multi-family yard sale. Furniture, toys, household, holiday, pet, baby items and more! We are located on the corner of Main and Pleasant Streets. This will be held rain or shine. For more information, you can call 679-5542.

September 16th will be our 3rd Saturday dinner. It is held from 5:00-6:30 and the cost is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children. Can’t stay to eat??? We have “to go” containers. We will be serving a Turkey Dinner with all of the fixings. On October 21st we will once again have the very popular McPhee Fish Fry. Please look for details on our sign out in front of the church.

On Saturday, September 23rd from 10 am to 3 pm we will be sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive at the church. Please look for details on our ECC sign near the driveway. You can sign up ahead of time on the Red Cross website. The American Red Cross encourages appointments that can be made by going to or by calling them at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Please come and donate to help save lives. It only takes about 1 hour and 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 11:00-12:30. After taking the month of August off we are ready to begin serving soup and salad to all who come. We will reopen on Thursday, September 7th. 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 the past few months. 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.

Our pastor search committee has been very busy for the past year. We are very close to being able to introduce a new pastor who will lead us at Epping Community Church. This is a very exciting time for all of us. We’d love to have you come and join us for worship at 9:00 am every Sunday and then a time of fellowship following the service. Sunday School will resume for children and adults during the month of September. A special thank you to Reverend David Johnson for leading us as our interim minister.

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.
