Welcome to Hadwen Park Congregational Church
United Church of Christ

We believe that all people of every age, physical or mental ability, body image, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, social-economic background, family construct and faith tradition are equal in the eyes of God and this congregation. When entering our sanctuary, you will be greeted with a smile, an extended hand and feel the love of Christ surrounding you. 

We are an Open and Affirming congregation.
Here, you are a stranger, but once.

Hadwen Park Church stands in prayerful support of our Black members, Black neighbors, and the entire Black community. 
Our heart breaks, as God’s heart breaks, at the racism that persists in our country. We pledge to take action, as Jesus did, for justice and against inequality.

In response to the January 6, 2021 riot in Washington DC, our pastors wrote to their congregation in support of a more peaceful, positive way to bring about change, ending with this:

"Jesus was a peacemaker, not a peacekeeper. We cannot be quiet or stand idly by while God’s children suffer with racism, hunger, hatred and abuse. We must MAKE a new peace."
