Holidays are about family.

You're Welcome at Hancock!

You’re Welcome at Hancock!

Sure, Christian Holidays are also about important theological ideas that help frame our lives and change our hearts, but this all happens within the context of our families. If your family is looking for a church this Easter, you would be welcome at Hancock. Whether your family is young or old, gay or straight, “church-going” or new to church – you’ll find someone like you at Hancock Church.

If you have questions, feel free to call the church office or reach out to any of our ministers. We hope you and your family will join us during Holy Week and on Easter Sunday!

It has become a tradition to gather atop the hill at the Old Belfry (behind Hancock Church) for a simple Easter Sunrise worship service of singing, scripture, communion, and sharing the names of loved ones who have died.
