Community Life at First Parish

Throughout the church year our Community Life Committee plans and offers events and activities to bring us together as a community. It might be at a picnic, coffee house, baseball game or discussion group where you really get to know some of your fellow parishioners. We relish opportunities to play and explore and enjoy life together, just as much as we value our opportunities to worship together.

Watch for announcements and invitations to Community Life activities throughout the church year, and join in!
