First Congregational Church UCC
About our Pastor
Pastor Tom Gardner grew up in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and graduated from Cairn University in Philadelphia in 2009. Since then, he has served churches in Indiana, Maine, and for the past 8 years, has lived and served in New Hampshire.
He says, "I have really come to love so much of what life here in New Hampshire has to offer. It's important to me to have opportunities to connect and serve in the local community, and that's something that our state does really well, and I'm grateful for those opportunities!"
Pastor Tom brings a personal and collaborative spirit to pastoral ministry. "Right now the world is so marked by division; its so important to listen to God's call to come together in love for each other and our community- to be the church in the world together."
Pastor Tom lives in Middleton with his family that includes his two sons and an assortment of pets and farm animals.
Our door is always open to anyone with questions, or who wants to talk.
