A Unique Fresh Expression of Church: Loon Mountain Ministry

Loon Mountain Ministry is a community of believers and others who are passionate about God and the outdoors.  They’ve been gathering outdoors for non-denominational worship services for over twenty years at the summit of beautiful Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire.

Who is a part of their outdoor Sunday services? Vacationers, homeowners who travel North each weekend, and locals who call the Pemi Valley home. Everyone is welcome.

The Loon Mountain Ministry is a unique experience. Open to whoever will come, services are offered from December 23rd through April 14th and June 17th through October 7th at the Summit Amphitheater. Summertime services are held at 11 am,  (though you’ll need a gondola ticket to the top). The amphitheater offers breathtaking views of the White Mountains that you can’t get elsewhere. There’s room for 200 people seated. It’s not uncommon for over 300 people to attend the service during peak foliage.

During the winter months, a 9 am service is held at the Lincoln-Woodstock Community Center every Sunday with an 11:30 am mountaintop service near the Summit Café on the trail called Harder Way to follow. Each service starts with music, scripture reading, and a short message followed by a ski down.

The Loon Mountain Ministry hosts two special services – Christmas Eve and Easter. The Christmas Eve service will attract over 500 people who gather around a 30 foot Christmas tree to present the snowmakers with the first gift of Christmas. Afterward, a candlelit service is held in the lodge.
