Coming of Age Service
Please join our 10th Graders who have been engaged in the Coming of Age process at First Parish this year. They will share their Credo statements with the First Parish community. This important rite of passage marks for our young people a time in their life when we encourage them to consider what their beliefs are at this particular point in their life, knowing that where their lives lead them likely will cause them to adjust their understanding of their personal spirituality and thinking about life’s big questions.
Guest musicians Sarah Hager, Elizabeth Walsh and Erik Svenson will provide beautiful music for worship. Elisabeth Walsh will sing Stephen Schwartz’s uplifting “Corner of the Sky” (from Pippin) and Matthew Wilder and David Zippel’s lyrical “Reflection” (from Mulan). Erik Svenson (horn) and Sarah Hager (piano) will play Reinhold Glière’s beautiful “Nocturne, Op. 35, No. 10.” For the centering music and postlude, Sarah will play George Winston’s gentle “Reflection” (from Winter into Spring) and Cèsar Franck’s powerful organ piece Maestoso in D Major (from L’Organiste).
