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 DRE@ufpc.org.

It's in our hands.

Upcoming Events & Services


December 21 - “Wisdom of the Darkness”
Rev. Rebecca Froom
In this season that brings the longest nights of the year, what can the darkness teach us? While the winter solstice is an opportunity to celebrate the returning of light and the promise of longer days, the winter solstice is also a time to slow down and appreciate the gifts of darkness.

The Christmas Choir will rehearse on Sunday the 21st at 9:15 AM and on Wednesday the 24th at 6:00 PM. All are welcome to sing!

Sunday, December 28 at 10:30 am - “The Thread”
William Levwood, M.Div.

Poet William Stafford says, “You don’t ever let go of the thread,” but the thread of purpose can be a slippery thing.  Join us for a service of chant, simple communal movement, and silent contemplation that will offer you an opportunity to recover the thread, or to deepen your relationship with it, or simply to support each other on the journey with acceptance and love.

This contemplative service will take place in the parish hall. Please enter the building by the Washington Street doors under the Rainbow Flag.
