What’s New at First Parish?
Celebrating Our Many Strengths
During this season of stewardship we are celebrating the many wonderful strengths of the First Parish community, affirming our vision for next year, and making our financial commitments to achieve it. There is a lot to look forward to! Thanks to all who hosted and attended our Celebration Sunday on March 2. If you haven’t made your pledge, it’s easy. Mail your pledge form to the church office, or contact Keith Sims, this year’s Stewardship Chair. Click here to send Keith an email. And thanks for being an important part of our future!
Rummage Sale on April 5th!
First Parish holds its popular Rummage Sale every spring. Staffed entirely by First Parish volunteers, the sale has been a Wayland institution for nearly 70 years. Donations of goods, which are tax-deductible, are gratefully accepted from anyone. Drop off your gently used items Sunday afternoon, March 30 – Wednesday, April 2. (Please, no exercise equipment, mattresses, office furniture, or upholstered couches. They just don’t sell!)
We are a Unitarian Universalist congregation that affirms human dignity, community action, freedom of religious thought, and the power of love.
Our church views religious education and spiritual development as an integral part of every person’s life, in every stage and every age, for children, youth and adults. Come learn with us as we seek to build meaningful lives.
Our church is actively engaged in community service and social justice work throughout the region as we strive to make a positive difference in the world.
First Parish in Wayland is in search for its new settled minister following the retirement of our minister of 38 years. The search process began in July 2013, and we will present our candidate in April 2014.
