Social Action Ministry

The Social Action Ministry (SAM) at First Parish comes from our Unitarian Universalist faith based on the values of love, justice, community and responsibility. We do this within the supportive environment of our broader church community and the mission of First Parish “…to act on our values to serve the larger community and create a more just and loving world.”

Communities Without Borders

Join us on Sunday, October 29 to hear Meg Jackson, Al Jacobson, Lynn Perry, and Toni Tasker share experiences of their trips to Zambia with Communities Without Borders. Hear about their educational support and medical screening for orphaned and vulnerable children left behind by the AIDS/HIV crisis. Find out how to apply for the Al Jacobson/CWB Traveling Fellowship which annually supports two First Parish travelers.

This may be of particular interest to teachers, medical personnel, and high school/college students. First Parish Lexington has long been committed to helping this community; we encourage you all to consider this potential service trip!

Information and applications for the Al Jacobson/CWB Traveling Fellowship are available on the church’s website. Applications are due on December 4, interviews follow during the months of December and January, and fellowships are awarded by February 4, 2018 for the summer 2018 trip. All are welcome to go on this service trip, with or without the Fellowship.
