Whoever you are, and wherever you may be on your journey, you are welcome here.
We're glad you landed here and we hope that it will be the start of a colorful relationship.
We hope that it will be a relationship that will begin with you getting to know us, and lead toward us getting to know you.
At the Belchertown United Church of Christ (BUCC) we believe that the stuff of faith is found in community; folks working and laughing and crying and singing and worshiping together, making a difference in the world. If that's a good place to start, click the TICKET below and let the ride begin!

NEEDED – a countertop microwave oven – Please, if you have a “like new” microwave oven available for donation, it would be good to have in the parish house kitchen. What a nice Christmas gift! Thanks!
DATES AVAILABLE: Got inspiration? Is the Advent season scratching an itch? Then lead a Sunday worship service! Sundays in January are available. Please let a Deacon or Council member know when you are ready and if any guidance is needed.
ELEVATOR and IMPROVEMENTS to the Dining Room –Please make a special donation, earmarked “Elevator Fund”, to help BUCC finalize the elevator installation, install flooring and cabinet upgrades in the kitchen AND, if the funds are available, install a mini-split air conditioning system in the dining room. The elevator shaft has walls and is ready for the elevator installation Dec. 16-17. Both elevators will be out of commission for at least a week following installation until State Inspection is complete.
