Maybe you grew up in church, and miss the songs and stories, the rituals and warmth. Maybe you didn’t grow up in church, and wonder what all the fuss is about; or feel a stirring, a nudge, a longing you can’t quite explain.
At First Church we start worship each Sunday by saying, “Welcome to you if you are queer or straight or a little bit of each... young or old or a little bit of each... doubting or believing or a little bit of each.... Welcome to people of all colors, all genders, all body shapes, sizes, and abilities... Because you are here, this Body is whole and perfect.”
Jesus didn’t draw a line between people who are in and people who are out, and neither do we. We believe that God loves everybody, just as they are, and as they are becoming. If our welcome describes you, we hope you will feel right at home at First Church Somerville!
