I came for the building; I stayed for the community.
My family and I were vacationing in Truro, and we had heard about the Meeting House. When we visited, we were so warmly welcomed and invited to attend a service the next day. We thought it might be nice to see what church is like in such an historic building. To our surprise, the service was a highlight of our trip, and we've gone back every year since. We don't get to visit very often, but this congregation feels like home when we do.
All means all.
My partner and I were looking for a church where we could be married, and thought First Parish fit the bill. In our planning we visited worship one Sunday morning, a little leery of going to a church we had never visited before. Neither of us is very religious. The congregation was very warm, and the welcome statement that the pastor read included every type of person. It was clear that, while some churches say "welcome," but only mean some people, First Parish Truro does truly welcome all.
