Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Federated Community Church of Hampden. We are a united and uniting congregation. Our denominations, United Church of Christ and United Methodist, are the products of several church unions. In addition, we also have community members who are not affiliated with either demonination.
We are truly "One in the Spirit - One in the Lord". It is how we experience the Body of Christ and how we relate to one another in the community as we walk together in a growing faith.
No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.
Feel Free to Look Around!

To All Church Members,
Our journey has been long and we have learned a lot, about ourselves, about each other and about our brothers and sisters in Christ in the wider parish. The search committee have been unanimous in their selection of a prospective new pastor and are pleased to announce that the “Candidating Weekend” has been arranged. Our prospective pastor will be at the church on December 7th to meet our parishioners between 10 and 1. He will then come to preach on December 8th during our worship service at 10:00. Immediately following service there will be an all-church meeting to discuss and then vote on whether to accept the pastor as our own. Please come along and encourage all interested parties to attend. Only members of the congregation will be able to vote.
“O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give success to your servant today…” (Nehemiah 1:11)
