4H Belknap Equestrians

Submitted By Sophia Sykes

The last 4H meeting was on 1/12/18.


We also had a 4H meeting on 12/15/17. This 4H meeting was so much fun for all of the kids who came because we had a fun Christmas party. We had food, pizza, gift swaps, and some fun horse games. We even made slime with Savannah!


The meeting on the 12th of January we did quiz bowl practice with everyone. Quizbowl is a game with teams sorted by age, and different 4H groups compete and answer horse related questions. This will take place on March 3rd, 2018 at Pembroke Academy.


The next 4H meeting will be February 9th 2018!

Ash Wednesday Taize’ Worship Service

February 14, 2018

Congregational Church Of North Barnstead


The Congregational Church of North Barnstead (CCNB) cordially invites the public to attend a candlelight Taize’ Ash Wednesday Worship Service, February 14 at 7:00 p.m.


Taize’ is an informal, ecumenical prayer service with a focus on peace, reconciliation, and social justice. Prayers, sacred silence, Scripture readings and songs encourage those gathered to enter together into the mystery of God’s presence.


Organist and vocalist Cheryl Richardson will lead the songs that are short, containing words from Scripture. Sung communally and repetitively, they become a unifying prayer and engender inner peace.


For this service, a ritual of “Earth to Earth, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust” will lead attendees into the Lenten season.


Taize’ worship began 77 years ago in Taize’, a small village in the Burgundy region of France. It has spread world-wide by people seeking to promote peace and reconciliation where they live and work. Each year, Taize’ attracts over 100,000 people.


This peaceful candlelight service lasts 45 minutes. CCNB, a “year round” church built in 1820, is at 504 North Barnstead Road. Please come and join in as they begin the season of Lent. All are welcome!
