Reverend Rebecca Froom, our new settled Minister

Rev. Rebecca Froom grew up in Philadelphia, has been a Unitarian Universalist since her teens, and has been involved in positions of UU leadership for over 15 years. 

Following an unanimous vote by the membership of United First Parish Church, Reverend Rebecca has agreed to join us at UFPC as our new settled minister.  She will begin her work with us in July.

We Welcome You…


to United First Parish Church, also known as the “Church of the Presidents” in Quincy Center.


Worship Services are held Sundays at 10:30 a.m. from the Sunday after Labor Day until Mid-June. Services include music, readings, and a sermon by our minister, guest speaker or a member of the congregation.


Our readings and sermons draw from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist spiritual writings, literature and poetry. Childcare service is available from 10:15 until 11:45. During the summer, congregation-led services are held in the parish hall.


After service, coffee and refreshments are served in the Parish Hall. Newcomers are especially welcome and are encouraged to come and ask questions at the Social Hour.


Seven Principles...


  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.


These principles are the backbone of our religious community.
