Welcome to

Amherst Community

United Church of Christ

“I do not understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us. ” 

- Anne Lamott



The people of the Amherst Community Church come from a variety of religious traditions. This makes for an interesting mix! We bring our questions, our doubts, our beliefs, our criticism, our willingness to both ask questions and lean into faith in order to make our lives, and the world, a better place.

Weekly Sermon


Luke 1:26-38 (The Message)


I cannot say I’d ever really thought about this, until my friend, Steve, included me in an email he sent out to his church members and friends, asking the question. He asked: What if Mary said no? What if, when the angel Gabriel came to her and told her the good news that she would give birth to the Son of God, she had said, “No. Thank you, though. I appreciate that you were thinking about me. It’s always good to hear from you, Almighty God. But, no. Just no.”
