“Making Home”


Join us at 10:00 am for a service led by the Rev. Dr. Stephanie May. Sometimes home is not all it’s cracked up to be. How can we be part of making homes that foster love and safety? In this Domestic Violence Awareness month, we will look at the concept of home in all its facets. Please join us!

At First Parish we seek to deepen our connections, both spiritual and human. We build community and work together to make a positive difference in the world. We are a Welcoming Congregation and a Green Sanctuary. Please join us! To learn more about Unitarian Universalism, click here.
