Welcome! We are so glad you are visiting our website today, and hope it will give newcomers a glimpse into our church community, as well as provide members and friends with current news and information.
The Melrose Highlands Congregational Church was founded in 1875 in the loft of a barn when some in the community felt a Sunday School needed to be started in the Highlands section of Melrose. We moved out of the barn a short time thereafter and have been expanding our ministry ever since.
We are a member of the United Church of Christ.
We strive to nourish the individual’s faith, while creating an abiding sense of community. A glimpse of the ministry of the Highlands Church is evident in our vision statement:
“We are a church centered in the worship of God for spiritual growth. Putting faith into action, we nurture young and old and reach out in mission to the community. Our love of God moves us to welcome and care for all as extended family.”
Through worship on Sunday mornings, Labyrinth walks once a month, service through Bread of Life and Habitat for Humanity, and sponsoring a monthly dance for middle school youth, we seek to extend God’s love into the world. We hope you will take another step and inquire about all the ways in which the Highlands Church can be a source of inspiration in your life and an outlet of service in Christ’s name.
The Melrose Highlands Congregational Church, UCC opens its doors to you.
We are located at 355 Franklin Street in Melrose, MA.
