Worship Services

We worship together each Sunday at 10:00 am.  Sunday worship services are also broadcast Sundays at 8:00 am on Longmeadow Cable Television (LCTV) Channel 12.  We often schedule services at other times, especially during Advent, Christmas and Holy Week and during times of local or national crisis. Special service times would be posted on our homepage and online calendar.

Walk through the front door on any Sunday of the year and you will be greeted by one of our ushers with a smile.  You will be handed a worship bulletin and be given an invitation to find yourself a seat or be escorted if you prefer. In the pew rack in front of you will be a red Pilgrim Hymnal and a black New Century Hymnal.  The bulletin will indicate in which hymnal you can find the hymns we will sing that morning, as well as the prayers we will offer together.  Our church is fully wheelchair accessible – our main front doors as well as our Williams Street door have handicapped entrances.  Large-print service bulletins and assistive listening devices for those with hearing impairments are available from the ushers.

Worship leadership is shared by our ministers, Senior Pastor Rev. Pamela McGrath and Associate Pastor Rev.

Communion

We share in the sacrament of Communion on the first Sunday of each month as well as Christmas Eve and special Holy Week services.  All are welcome at Christ’s table, including children at the discretion of their parents.…

Weather Closings

In case of adverse weather, First Church follows the lead from Town of Longmeadow.  If the town issues a parking ban, then the church building is closed and all meetings are canceled.

If weather should cause a church service to be canceled a special alert would be sent via our email system and a notice would be placed on our homepage and be sent to WWLP Channel 22.…
