About Us

First UMC of Melrose is a progressive Reconciling Congregation in the Boston Metropolitan Area. We are an open congregation who seeks to be in mission in our community and the world.

Mission Statement: Together we are called to be a welcoming Christian congregation that lifts the spirit and compels us to reach out to the community to bear witness to God’s presence in our lives. As a people called by God, our vision is to be a servant people striving for peace and love in an imperfect world.

Our Reconciling Statment:

The First United Methodist Church of Melrose embraces Jesus’ message that God loves and accepts every person. Jesus calls us to the ministry of reconciliation and grace. We therefore invite and welcome all persons of every age, gender identity, racial or ethnic background, sexual orientation, marital or socioeconomic status, nationality, and physical or mental ability into full participation in the life of this faith community. We are committed to the reconciliation of all persons as children of God and declare ourselves to be a Reconciling Congregation.

We believe that all God’s children have special gifts to be honored and respected in an atmosphere of faith, hope and love. We hold fast to the God-given goodness that is in every person. Our faith compels us to accept nothing less than the human rights of all people.

We therefore support social practices which seek to eliminate all forms of discrimination, injustice and violence, and commit ourselves to actively working to effect changes within the United Methodist Church which encourage the full inclusion of all people in the life of our church and denomination.
