“Coming to Hammond Street, it was like an “Ah-Hah” moment for me! …. Hammond Street is an open and affirming church that is incredibly active in the community and always supporting others, no matter their situation. I feel that this is the path Jesus wants us to follow. I only wish I had found HSCC sooner!”

“Church Service is always a special day with wonderful scripture tied into everyday life. Always a lesson to be learned from Pastor Mark. The sanctuary is spacious with plenty of room for reflection.”

“Regardless of your denomination, background, race, age, marital status, orientation, income, whatever. You will get an extravagant welcome and everyone will be genuinely happy to see you when you come. Really.”

“In other churches that I attended, I felt that faith was talked about during services, but that people did not act upon their faith. That is different at Hammond Street.”

“The commitment of the people of HSCC to “do justice, and to love kindness, and walk humbly” with God (Micah 6:8) is strong.”
