Our Church Family

Our Church Family

First Church of Christ in Longmeadow is a vital, active, progressive Christian faith community.  We welcome persons of every age, race, ethnicity, gender identity and expressions, sexual orientation, mental, physical, emotional, economic and social status and circumstances of life.

We are one family in Jesus Christ. We are a diverse group of people called by God to be in relationship with one another, to share in all the beginnings and endings, successes and failures, celebrations and sorrows of life and ministry.

While some of us were baptized, confirmed, and married at First Church, many others were raised in other faith traditions; still others are participating in a faith community for the first time in our lives.

Many of us live in Longmeadow; others come from the surrounding communities of Enfield, Springfield, Wilbraham, and beyond. We are married and single, young and old, longtime members and occasional visitors, bound together by the unity of the Holy Spirit.

Regular worship services are held Sundays at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.  The sacrament of Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.  Worship practices are outlined in the bulletins distributed at each service, and ushers are happy to guide newcomers. Nursery care, church school, large-print texts, and audio assistance are available during Sunday services, and the church building is accessible to the handicapped. Street parking is available, as well as off-street parking in the nearby lots behind Longmeadow’s Community House and Center School.
