Church in a Community Center? We’re saving to buy our own permanent facilities, but – you can probably figure out what that’s going to cost. Good thing is, a building isn’t really a church. People are the church. And MetroWest has great people – people not just from Wellesley, but from towns in all directions. The people of MetroWest gather every Sunday. Together – for a purpose.
We are trying to be the kind of church the New Testament talks so much about. We understand that following Jesus is our ultimate goal – so in our services you see a lot of used Bibles. We take it pretty seriously, but hopefully we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Some of us have kids, and it’s important to us that kids feel at home at MetroWest, too. So up and down the line you’ll find a place at MetroWest to fit right in with us – families with kids of all ages, college students, young professionals, grandparents, as well; lifelong residents and newcomers to our communities.
Maybe you might not expect to find a real church in a Community Center. But we want to be a church where the Bible is taught with passion, where people come to know God personally and find guidance for whatever needs life throws at us. We pray to have an obvious sense of God’s presence in our services. Check it out- we think your heart might just find a place to feel at home.
