Coming in September

Water Communion during Ingathering Service

Wherever you are in your life, please bring some water to share, whether from a lake, ocean, or home faucet, for the special Ingathering water communion on Sunday, September 10 at 10:30am. There will be a scavenger hunt during social hour! Discover all the new things at church from a summer of work.


Picnic Potluck

After the service on Sunday, September 24th, there will be a picnic potluck on the First Parish field (inside if weather doesn’t cooperate). All are welcome to this fun gathering as we begin our church year together! If your last name begins with A through I, please bring a salad or appetizer to share. If your last name begins with J through R, please bring a main dish. If your last name begins with S through Z, please bring a dessert.


Fall Potluck Dinners

Enjoy a good meal? Looking to get acquainted with others in the church, both newcomers and long-time members? Spend an evening with First Parishioners at our popular potluck dinners!

Dinners will begin in October, following signups in September. To sign up, visit the piano during social hour, choose which evenings are possible for you, and indicate whether or not you could host a dinner. After signups are complete, groups of 8-10 people will be formed and begin gathering in October in a group memberʹs home on a weekday or weekend evening once a month for four months. The same people remain in the same group for each dinner. There are also options for family potluck dinners where children have their own dinner together, separate from the adults.

Sign up during coffee hour throughout September. Questions about fall potluck dinners? Please contact Linda Coyne at
