About Center Church

church for website

We’re glad you’re here! Welcome to Center Church, an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ in South Hadley, MA.

Center Church is a progressive, vibrant, multigenerational Christian community, worshiping the presence of a Living God, following the teachings of Jesus and alive in the Holy Spirit. As we say in the UCC, No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey you are welcome here.

We hope Center Church will feed your soul; with worship that challenges and reassures; ministry that offers guidance and support; dynamic Christian education for children and adults; and programs that are fun and spiritually enriching.

At Center Church, we embrace diversity, and walk with God on an authentic and transparent path. We are of many minds in our spiritual beliefs, but one body in loving service to others and in joyful worship of God. Our multi-generational congregation, gracefully and gratefully, sojourns together as one.

As a Congregational church, our members are responsible for our organization, administration, mission, worship and buildings.  We rely upon the guidance of an Ordained Minister but encourage input and engagement in all matters of discernment. We are in the business of being a visible witness and an active presence of God’s radical and all inclusive welcome.
