Reverend Rebecca Froom

The Ministerial Search Committee is proud to introduce Reverend Rebecca Froom as our candidate for settled minister of United First Parish Church.

 

Our candidating week will run from May 10 through May 18 during which Rebecca will lead Sunday services on the 11th and the 18th, as well as be available for office hours and cottage meetings, so that we can all have a chance to meet her and get to know her better. Directly after service on May 18th we will have a Congregational Meeting and the congregation will be voting to call her as our settled minister.

 

In 2004, Reverend Rebecca graduated from Vassar College with a  Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and Religion.

She received her Masters of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School in 2012.

She has served three congregations, Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson as D.R.E., Ministerial Intern at Arlington Street Church of Boston, and Assistant Minister at First Unitarian Society in Franklin, MA.

She was ordained at Arlington Street Church in 2012.

 

Rebecca currently lives with her husband, Alexander, “Alec” Aman. They are residents of the Lucy Stone Cooperative, a community grounded in Unitarian Universalist values and committed to spirituality, sustainability and social change.

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.
