Site Description

The congregation has 162 adult members and 40 children enrolled in Sunday School. There are also active middle and high school youth groups with more than a dozen youth in each. There are monthly middle school dances for 400 or more youth. For adults there are many ways to get together for study and fellowship. We have monthly Labyrinth walks, weekly Bible study and movies in our Holyword Theatre. Mission and outreach are a part of our life, and we participate in a feeding ministry and food pantry.Melrose has an economic mix which is reflected in the church. MHCC is in the Highlands section of Melrose and is 7 miles north of Boston. The church is within walking distance of the commuter rail into Boston. The community of Melrose is growing in diversity with an estimated 50 languages spoken in people’s homes. This diversity is not reflected in the church although we have welcomed families from other cultures.

Student Involvement

The Melrose Highlands Congregational Church (MHCC) offers a student a variety of ministry possibilities which could include weekly worship. Worship responsibilities might include preaching at least 4x, as well as offering the children’s sermon, offertory and liturgy. Our active senior high youth group is in need of leadership. There are also many possibilities to choose from: stewardship, mission and outreach as well as other small group ministries. There is also interest in establishing a Care Team. We would expect that the student choose an area of interest and develop an aspect of it deeply. For more information: http://www.mhcc-ucc.org/

Commitment to Educating Ministers

We are a learning organization and feel that a student will benefit from the many ways we are finding to provide ministry within our community and outside our doors. We also will learn from the student and welcome the breath of ideas and enthusiasm that a student might bring. We are in an active process to reorganize the ministry of the congregation and a student could participate in that process. We believe in a team approach to ministry and the student would be a part of the staff and lay team.
