DENOMINATION/AFFILIATION: Assemblies of God

HISTORY: Windham Assembly of God began with a small group of people who desired to know the saving work of Christ and to experience being filled with the Holy Spirit. Born out of the Charismatic Movement, this group first met in homes, storefronts, and even the Windham Drive-In Theater.

The Rev. Adra Lovely, the founding pastor, and the members of this fellowship decided to join the Assemblies of God in 1977 and met weekly in the Masonic Hall in Windham. Land was soon purchased on Route 302 to build a church, and in May 1981, the new building was dedicated and weekly services began.

In September 1981, Windham Christian Academy opened in the building.

In June of 1984, the Rev. Daniel Abbatiello became lead pastor. In July 1987, the building was expanded to include more classrooms and a gymnasium, where church services were now held.

In 2008 the Rev. Brian Galbraith, youth pastor since 1996, became lead pastor.

MINISTRIES: We are a host site for Angel Food Ministries, a monthly food program where anyone can purchase deeply discounted food. We also host the Monday Meal, a free meal, on the first and third Mondays of each month.

Windham Christian Academy currently has more than 100 students in its K-12 program.

A full-time children’s pastor was hired in 2007. Pastor Dana Galbraith oversees Sunday morning programs and mentorship groups on Wednesdays. Last year we launched a Mothers of Preschoolers group.

Youth Pastor Jon Weller directs 3rd Culture for junior and senior high students at 6 p.m. Sunday.

WORSHIP SERVICES: Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in July and August. In September, Sunday school will resume at 9:15 a.m. followed by our worship service at 10:30 a.m.

Child care is available from birth through grade 5 during Sunday morning worship service.
