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.

  We are using Anglican Prayer Beads with a recently       compiled booklet to help in our prayer journey.  You do   not need to pray with beads.  However, if you would like   a set, they are free.  Email a request for beads to Diane   Schroeder at dianapiana54@gmail.com  Include your   favorite color and whether you prefer gold or silver.   Diane will gladly make a set for you (trying to

accommodate your color choice) and arrange 

for you to get them.

              Below is a link for the booklet we are using. 

                              We hope you will join us!  

Weekly Sermon

Don't Forget the Wild Animals

 Mark 1:9-15  (The Message)

I haven’t spent much time in deserts.  I think the longest I’ve been in a desert is the portion of an afternoon I spent in the Painted Desert, located in the north central/north east central part of Arizona.  I was probably 17 years old, and some members of my church’s youth group had traveled by Winnebago to a Hopi Indian reservation, where we spent every morning of the week we lived there leading a Vacation Bible School for the Hopi children.  Each afternoon, we’d travel around the area to see God’s amazing creation in all its glory.
