An Open and Affirming Congregation
to First Parish Church!
I look forward to
We are a community of people who seek to center our lives in God, tuning our spirits to God’s Spirit, so that we may empower and support one another’s ministries in the world.
We have a rich heritage of envisioning a renewed world, as we follow in the Way of Jesus of Nazareth. After Harriet Beecher Stowe experienced a vision in our sanctuary in 1851, she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, inspiring people to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God” in the face of racial injustice. In 2004 people in the congregation formed an Earth Care Team, which inspires us today to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God” by caring for all creation.
Among us you will find people of all generations with various religious backgrounds and some with no previous religious experience. We come from all over the country and hold differing political views. We are committed to practicing ways of sharing our stories – talking and listening to one another with open minds and open hearts – so that we may live out our commitment to be open and affirming with one another, trusting that the love of Christ knows no bounds. Through worship, humor, music, questioning, life-long learning, and service we imagine a life of loving God, loving neighbor, and loving self.
We hope you’ll join us!
The Rev. Mary Baard
