Upcoming Events & Services

Sundays at 10:30am - Worship Service

“Happy ‘Now’ Year”

Ann Marie Willer, Marie-Louise Jackson-Miller, Lee Forest, Jane Mudge

Sunday, January 1, 10:30 am, Parish Hall


New Year's Day is a time that prompts reflection. We can't help but look ahead to 2017, wondering and planning, and we look back on 2016, remembering. On this Sunday morning, however, join us as we stay in the "now" and experience the truth and peacefulness of the present moment. The Buddhist practice of meditation will be included in the service, which will be led by members of UFPC's meditation group. This service will be held in the Parish Hall.


“The Flame that Burns Within”

Rev. Rebecca Froom and Alison Jablonsky

Sunday, January 8, 10:30 am


At the start of the New Year, we reflect on the changes and transformations in our lives. This multigenerational service includes the ritual of a fire ceremony where we use the power of fire to release something we want to let go of from the old year, and take time to reflect on what we want to commit ourselves to in the coming year. In this service we will also introduce our annual Guest at Your Table campaign for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. The theme of this year's program is “defying hate.”

“Creative Maladjustment”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

Sunday, January 15, 10:30 am


On this Martin Luther King Day Sunday we reflect on MLK's message that there are some things in society to which we should never become adjusted. When we look at the injustices present in our country and society, how can we respond with the fierce resilience of “creative maladjustment” rather than resigning ourselves to a “new normal?”

“For Such a Time as This”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

Sunday, January 22, 10:30 am


On this weekend of the Presidential Inauguration many are wondering, what will be the purpose and direction of the country in the next four years? And how will I respond to these new directions? This service invites us to reflect on how we can call upon our own strength and resilience to recommit to our own sense of purpose in the coming years.

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.

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 sermons by our minister, guest ministers, or a lay-member of congregation.

Our readings and sermons draw from Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu Buddhist, and other spiritual writing.  Childcare service is available for free from 10:15am until 11:45am.  During the summer, the congregation's lay-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 ask questions at the Social Hour.

It's in our hands.
