Welcome to First Congregational Church in Melrose, United Church of Christ!
Ours is a church where you are welcome as you are for who you are and for who can become. Here you will find judgement left at the door as we celebrate the diversity of God's creation in the many paths that intersect in our sanctuary each Sunday morning. First Congregational Church is a congregation of over 275 members and we take seriously our call to bring the richness of our Protestant tradition to modern times through innovation and creativity.
Along with our vibrant Church School, two youth groups and dynamic music program, there are a myriad of ministries which are available to you as a means of activating your faith and making your discipleship tangible. We are also eager to hear how God is working in your life and what new ministry you are being called to begin in our midst.
In this world of great challenge and anxiety, I welcome you to a true wellspring of the spirit where together we embody the living Christ in a community of healing and empowerment.
See you in church,
Rev. Dominic Taranowski
