Missions

There are multiple opportunities to serve the wider community through First Church.

In addition to raising funds for projects like Heifer International and Habitat for Humanity, we have on-going service opportunities that include:

 
The Hadley Food Pantry
We co-run a food pantry with Most Holy Redeemer on Sundays from 12:00-2:00 and are always looking for donations of food and volunteers to pass it along.
 
Take & Eat
Volunteers prepare and deliver a meal to senior citizens in Hadley on the first Saturday of every month.
 
Not Bread Alone
We prepare and serve a meal at Not Bread Alone in Amherst every time there is a fifth Sunday in a month.
 
Service Sunday
Twice a year we gather a little early for breakfast, enjoy a brief time of worship and then engage in acts of service to the wider community.
 
Knitting Group
Meets on Monday evenings. Please call the church office 584-4117 for more information.
 
Relay for Life
First Church participates in the Hampshire County Relay for Life each year in June.
 
 
And then there’s...
 
The Strawberry Asparagus Supper, the Fall Festival, Adult Study Groups, and other special events.
 
Here at First Church we are both traditional and ever changing, honoring beloved traditions even as we seek to be faithful in new ways.
