The First Congregational Church of Hadley is a community guided by love, hope and Christian tradition. Our purpose is to help transform the lives of individuals through the power of Jesus Christ, so that together we might transform the world. Inspired by Jesus’ example, we recognize that every individual comes to our table with a unique set of needs, talents, and experiences, and that everyone has value to our mission.
We therefore declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming community of Christian faith. We warmly welcome all to engage with us in our mission, regardless of age, economic status, ethnicity, family structure, gender identity or expression, marital standing, national origin, physical and mental health status, race, sexual orientation, or any other label that would seek to divide rather than to unite. With God’s grace, we invite all to share in the life and leadership, ministry and fellowship, worship and sacraments, responsibilities and blessings of our church.

PONDERING POTENTIAL PROPERTY PROJECTS
A list of building projects has been posted in vestry. You are invited to drop by anytime to add your voice. You will find directions in the vestry on how to participate in the process. We will be leaving everyone's input up over the summer. In the fall we will summarize the wishes of the congregation in conjunction with the Properties and Finance Boards. We look forward to the exchange of ideas, the conversations to follow, and making our sacred space welcoming and beautiful. Thank you for your participation!
