Upcoming Events & Services

Sundays at 10:30am - Worship Service

“With Half a Loaf”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

Sunday, March 5, 10:30 am


What is it that we share as a faith community at United First Parish Church? How do we both benefit from and sustain our congregation? As we reflect on our March theme of identity and begin our annual appeal, this service reflects on the identity of our church and our commitment to the future of our community.


Reggie Harris and Pat Wictor

Guest worship leaders

Sunday, March 12, 10:30 am


This Sunday, musicians Reggie Harris and Pat Wictor will return to UFPC to serve as our guest preachers and guest musicians.


Reggie Harris combines a strong folk and gospel legacy with a solid background in classical, rock, jazz, and pop music. As a socially conscious acoustic musician and storyteller, he has been “walking the talk” for over 30 years, performing modern and historical songs that explore societal ills and proffer positive social messages.


Pat Wictor first burst on the folk and acoustic scene as an innovative slide guitarist known for doing fresh and memorable versions of traditional and contemporary songs. He’s become a well-regarded singer and songwriter, writing material grounded in rural country, gospel, and blues traditions of our nation. He also performs as part of the trio Brother Sun.


“I Contain Multitudes”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

Sunday, March 19, 10:30 am


Each us is unique. Our identities are informed by our life experiences and the roles we have inhabited. Our identities are also influenced by our intersectionality – the ways in which power dynamics have impacted us in terms of our race, class, gender, sexuality, physical ability, education, citizenship, and more. How do we holistically embrace the beauty and complexity of our identity, while also being mindful of the privileges we have (or do not have) in our society?


“The Promise of Pluralism”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

Sunday, March 26, 10:30 am


We live in an era when our country, and perhaps our city, is at once increasingly diverse and increasingly divided. As people of faith and conscience, how can we create the beloved community where we honor one another for our differences as well as our similarities?

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.
