Missions and Programs

As a church community, we are called to care for others locally, nationally and globally.


First Church is known as a caring community of faith that looks out for the needs of its members and other individuals and families of the local community. The Pastor and Deacons carry out a regular ministry of pastoral care and a number of individuals participate in a prayer ministry through our Prayer Circle.  

First Church maintains strong support of our church's wider mission through the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ (MACUCC), the Council of Churches of Greater Springfield and a number of other mission programs.   Click here for an explanation of one way we support MACUCC.

First Church in Ludlow Christmas gifts to local
                kids

Evan Grimes of First Church in Ludlow places a gift under the “Giving Tree” located in the Church’s sanctuary. First Church members gave gifts to make for a Merry Christmas for 18 children from 8 Ludlow families who otherwise would have very little for Christmas.  Along with presents for the youngsters, Big Y cards and bags of groceries were gifted to each family.
