We welcome you to the life and ministry of the Greenfield Hill Congregational Church. For almost 300 years people have found a delightful and inspiring spiritual home with us. Today’s ministry continues to reach out in every way possible to serve God by serving others and one another.

Rev. David Johnson Rowe and Rev. Alida Ward serve as our pastors. They provide a strong commitment to preaching, teaching, pastoral care and mission. Our staff combines years of experience with a variety of gifts, all offered to the glory of God and the strengthening of our church. Together, we aim to have a church that clearly represents the love of God and the presence of Christ every day.

PLEASE READ BELOW FOR OUR PRAYER CONCERNING THE RECENT SHOOTING IN TEXAS:
“We are children of light … not of darkness.” (1st Thessalonians 5:5)
In the last year, our Greenfield Hill Church life has been as joyful, fun, and uplifting as we could ever hope for. Great kids, amazing teens, and wonderful adults make our every day a delight.
Maybe that was true for the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. Then today.
We imagine you in your home, reading this. You watch the news, or block out the news; you shield the children, or whisper a prayer. You are shocked, angry, discouraged, numb. You say things like “again? … no … God help us.” You remember Emanuel Church in Charleston, Las Vegas just a month ago, New York City just six days ago.
Our calling as pastors is to be hopeful and encouraging. But we are also as real as you are. And this is hard.
Believe it or not, we were just about to order a candle stand for our sanctuary, for times when prayer is needed. Lighting a candle is still better than cursing the darkness. We hadn’t yet ordered because we were still deciding — 25 candles, or 50? No rush, we thought, we’ll figure it out soon.
If the candle stand were here, this is the prayer we would have said tonight as we lit the first 25 candles:
Christ, have mercy on us. We are too broken to be trusted with mere words. You have promised to step in when words fail us. You have promised to hear our sighs, our moans. You hear even our tears as they fall. Tonight, we can only hold our loved ones near, embrace our faith, and beg your strength. Tomorrow, Lord, wake us with wisdom and resolve. Feed our hope that as a people, as nation, we can overcome the worst among us, and the worst within us. God, we need you now. Amen.
