About Us: Love Seek Serve
Our home page features the three words: Love, Seek, and Serve. First Parish is based on a covenant rather than a creed, and these words are a shorthand version of our First Parish Covenant. The affirmation of our covenant starts with:
Love is the doctrine of this church.
The quest for Truth is its sacrament and
Service is its prayer.
We celebrate the inherent worth and dignity of all individuals. (Love) As a congregation, we support each other’s search for spiritual growth (Seek) so that we may be a strong gathering force to Serve in the larger community. These are the raisons d’être of the First Parish in Lexington.
We are curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We need not think alike to love alike. We look to life experience to influence our beliefs. We are aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good and we have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
