Welcome to the First Congregational Church of Hadley!

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.

SHEPHERDS – CARING COMPANIONS

Do you enjoy extending God’s love to others? Do you enjoy offering a listening ear and a caring heart to the elderly and the convalescing? Do you have skills you would want to offer to a single parent, the ill, those with physical limitations, and those experiencing a crisis? Would you consider making a meal, driving, housecleaning, running errands, writing a card, or doing an odd job that requires special skills? If any of these questions piqued your interest, please contact Rev. Christina at pastorchristina2846@gmail.com.
