Happy 375 Anniversary
United First Parish Church!

September 26th, 2014 marks UFPC's 375th anniversary.  We celebrate 375 years of community, caring and compassion!

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.

Daycare and religious education classes have resumed. For enrollment information contact

Upcoming Events & Services

September 28th - Out Beyond Right and Wrong There is a Field

Reverend Elizabeth Nguyen, Guest Preacher

Our faith teaches us that we are all loved and that nothing can cast us out of that great circle of love. But we are sometimes eager to cast out others - to draw the circle narrower and narrower. Racism, war and violence are heartbreakingly real in our world. Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen preaches on working for justice, without casting anyone out, and the love that transcends right and wrong.

October 5th - “Language of Reverence”
Rev. Rebecca Froom

Unitarian Universalists hold a diverse set of religious beliefs and we look to a myriad of sources for truth and meaning. Our church covenant calls us to “unite to lift our hearts and open our minds to a larger reality.” What words, images, and stories can we use to understand and describe our experiences of a “larger reality?”
