Join us for worship at 9:30 a.m. Sunday — all are welcome!

Charlemont Federated Church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ —
No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here. As progressive and open Christians, we remember the life of Jesus Christ and the call towards living as best we can in God’s love, seeking peace and justice for all of creation. We draw from the traditions of our faith and allow God’s Word to unfold in ever-new ways through scripture, prayer, music, preaching and our interactions with one another. Our doors are open to the larger community and the world. You are invited to bring your own spiritual gifts to our faith community, a place with “theological elbow room.”  You are invited to share the journey with us.
