What are services like?
Every Sunday we gather as the people of God to proclaim God's love in word and sacrament. The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday. We follow a traditional liturgical format including a mix of musical styles. Our heritage is in hymns and organ music, but we also strive toward increasing diversity in our music.
What is the community like?
We are a mix of ages, single and married, from Amherst and from other surrounding towns, people affiliated with the colleges and university and people who aren't. We include people of different ethnic and racial backgrounds.
