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.

Community Christmas Caroling
Sunday, December 21

UFPC is seeking enthusiastic Christmas Carolers to go visit some of our residents and community members to sing CHRISTMAS CAROLS in mid-December! This is a service to the community we have provided in
previous years during the holiday season, where we visit locations such as 1000 Southern Artery and other living facilities in the area and sing Christmas Carols for the residents, and it's always been a big hit. Music will be provided for you to sing!  If you wish to help us out in singing this year, please contact Wiley Cox in church, or via email, Thanks!
