Hancock Front

Welcome to Hancock Church on the Battle Green in Lexington Center! We hope you find this website useful and welcoming! If you’re curious about our faith, you can read more in “Our Spiritual Practices.” If you’d like to read more about our morning worship and evening services, please read What To Expect.

We provide childcare for both services and have an active Children’s Program (pre-k to 5th grade), Junior Youth Organization (6-8th grade), and Hancock Youth Group (9-12th grade).

Most importantly, our Covenant of Welcome makes clear that all are welcome, just as they are. You don’t have to change who you are or what you believe in order to join us, but you should expect that what you experience in our community will transform you. God can work through you just as easily as through any one of us, and so community is at the heart of all we are and do.

Hancock Covenant of Welcome

We Welcome all who seek to know God.

We believe that, although we are many members, we are one body in Christ.

We have been called as well as challenged by God to respect and reconcile our differences.

We recognize and love each individual as a child of God.

We welcome, respect, support, and lovingly encourage people of every race, ethnicity, creed, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical and mental ability to join us on our journey of faith.

This faith journey indeed calls Hancock Members not to be silent in the face of prejudice, injustice, and exclusion, but to express our faith, in word and deed, for justice and inclusiveness for all humanity.

As Paul wrote to the Galatians, “In Christ there is no longer Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for all are one…”
