During the church year there are specified times when all parishioners are invited to participate in selected activities.  These may include doing nothing more than donating goods and money to various organizations.  Or, may include taking action together such as the Amnesty International Letter Writing Campaign or the Saturday in the Spring when we have a Day of Service .  Once a month the plate collection is given to a designated organization.  On Martin Luther King Day there are town wide events which some of First Parish folk have helped to organize and many First Parish people participate in.  And after Thanksgiving we begin the Guest at our Table program.  As a community we make a difference.
