Shut church bequeaths $100,000 to another


HAMPSTEAD, N.H. — A New Hampshire church has received a $100,000 donation from another church.

The Hampstead Congregational Church on Sunday officially accepted the gift from the Haverhill, Mass., Congregational Church, which closed its doors in 2008.

Linda Mills, a former parishioner at the Massachusetts church, said the goal was always to benefit other United Church of Christ congregations. She went to the Hampstead church on several occasions and always came away impressed, especially with their Christian education program.
