Prayer by Rev. Erica Federspiel Richmond, Parish Minister

First Parish
A liberal religious community, welcoming to all
First gathered 1739

At First Parish, we honor the passage from childhood towards adulthood through our Coming of Age program. This Sunday we celebrate seven of our 8th grade youth! Our service will include Credo (“I Believe”) statements from the Coming of Age class. And as another cohort passes through the “Arch of Love,” we celebrate all the people who have contributed to our multigenerational community.
After the service, in-person attendees are invited to participate in the "Story of Religious Education at First Parish" activity in the Parlor. Come share memories and help shape the future!

Offering and Giving First

The Giving First program donates 50% of the non-pledge offering each month to a charitable organization that we feel is consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles. The program began in November 2009, and First Parish has donated over $200,000 to more than 70 organizations. For June, July and August 2024, the Giving First recipients are the ArCs Cluster, a local refugee support group, and the Immigrant Learning Center, a not-for-profit organization in Malden, MA.

The remaining half of your offering supports the life and work of this Parish.
