Little Church In Narrows Wants To Open Its Doors To More People!


Members, Friends, and Northwood Community:

The Northwood Advent Christian Church is asking for help in "Opening Up" to people with challenges that make it difficult for them to attend services or events in our church. We know that the stairs are difficult and we also know that many people who have struggled to attend a wedding, funeral, concert or other events, have either not come at all or felt uncomfortable getting in and out with wheelchairs or other special aids. We are attempting to remove that barrier by installing a small elevator. After speaking with several companies and reviewing several estimates, we have found a unit that meets our needs.


Northwood Advent Christian Church is small in size but huge in heart, just like our town. We will be keeping the community up to date on this project. Anyone interested in helping us reach this goal to more fully serve our community can send donations made payable to Northwood Advent Christian Church, c/o Arlene Johnson, Treasurer, 154 Olde Canterbury Road, Northwood, NH 03261 or call 942-5410.


Christine Averill, Trustee

These two young boys from Northwood, Tyler Hartford, age 8 and Campbell Hartford age 5, decided that instead of asking for gifts for themselves for their birthdays this year they asked friends and family to bring donations for the Cocheco Valley Humane Society. The theme for both parties was animals and the boys invited the Granite State Zoo to come and give a presentation.
