We are a small, friendly congregation working towards increasing our mission to be Christ’s disciples in partnership with our community. We have been in downtown Springfield since 1832. We have weathered many ups and downs together.

Our faith is 2000 years old.

Our thinking is not.

We are an Open, Affirming and Welcoming church.
